The Art of Indian Head Massage

Indian Head Massage is both physically and mentally relaxing, involving the treatment of the face, scalp, neck, shoulders and upper back. The back and shoulders are vulnerable areas for the accumulation of stress and tension, and are gently, firmly and rhythmically massaged until the pressure begins to simply float away. The technique has been practised in India for over a thousand years, originally by women who believed that massaging their heads with natural vegetable oils kept their long hair healthy and strong.

When the body is subjected to stress and illness, the skin and hair are often affected, resulting in dryness and sometimes loss of hair. In muscular tension, the scalp becomes tight, restricting the flow of nutrients to the hair and restricting hair growth. Using oils on a regular basis can help to encourage healthy, shiny hair, it can slow down hair loss and soften and moisturise the hair.

The head, neck and shoulders are important energy centres within your body. If you are feeling stressed or angry, tension tends to accumulate. This tension can later show up as a stiff neck and shoulders, eyestrain and, sometimes hair loss. Indian Head Massage involves working with a firm and gentle rhythm to help unknot blockages and relieve this uncomfortable build up of tension. However its effect is not just physical: it works on an emotional level too, calming the spirit, promoting relaxation and relieving stress.
