Indian Head Massage has been practiced in India for over a thousand years. It works on a physical, mental and emotional level.
A treatment includes the shoulders, neck and head. These are important energy centres where stress and tension can be easily accumulated causing pain and discomfort. Muscles tighten due to emotional and physical stress, the massage helps to unknot these blockages and remove uncomfortable tension.
The technique involves working with a firm and gentle rhythm and includes a combination of massage movements. It is safe, simple and effective. It can give the individual the opportunity to get intouch with his or her own healing potential.
Indian Head Massage supports the nervous system by alleviating stress. It stimulates the lymphatic system and encourages the elimination of toxins from your body, enabling you to function on all levels more efficiently. The circulatory and immune systems are stimulated and the respiratory system gets a little workout too, as deep breathing is encouraged during the treatment.
You do not have to remove clothing during the treatment but it is best to wear just light clothing such as a t-shirt. You will be asked to remove jewellery, watches and glasses. I will ask you some questions before the treatment starts but this is strictly confidential.
