Indian Head Massage as one would think originates from India where it has been practised for centuries within the Indian Culture. It has been used regularly and as a way of life to maintain a level of stress-free harmony and relaxation as well as a healthy body and a strong and healthy head of hair. The massage itself encompasses an upper back, shoulder, neck, arms, scalp and face massage, in other words the whole of the upper torso.
Todays world we live in is full of stress that we did not experience hundreds of years ago. Life is now lived at a faster pace in general and with growing pollution which is inherent in everything from the food we eat to the water we drink to the air we breathe, all add to the toxins which can get stored in our cell tissue. Our bodies are amazing structures built to heal and regenerate but they have limits and are constantly being overloaded. One of the benefits of Indian Head Massage is that it helps to release toxins from the body and so supports the body’s natural cleansing process.
Indian Head Massage has a great advantage over many other complimentary therapies as it can be performed anywhere, at home, at the office, wherever there is a chair. The client remains fully clothed during the treatment which can be performed with or without creams and oils to the scalp and facial area
