Insights into Indian Head Massage

 

Indian Head Massage sounds like the ultimate treat, but it’s far more than just that.  It offers a vast array of physical and emotional benefits.

 

It’s Carried Out Through Clothes

 

The treatment is performed while you remain fully clothed, making this treatment ideal for clients that are new to massages or clients who might be a little bit apprehensive about having treatment.

 

Relieves symptoms of Anxiety, Stress, and Depression

 

An increase of oxygen to the brain stimulates creativity, clear thinking and can improve your mood, much like the effect that exercise has on the brain.  Massaging the head does just that and in turn, can reduce anxiety and stress.

 

Promotes hair growth

 

Stress can tighten the scalp, restricting blood flow.  While massaging the head, blood flow is stimulated and increased oxygen and nourishment is sent to the hair follicles, which in turn can stimulate hair growth. 

 

It can also provide relief from hair disorders associated with stress such as Alopecia, Dandruff, and Psoriasis.

 

Relieve muscular-skeletal discomfort.

 

Indian Head massage can provide relief from acute and chronic neck and shoulder stiffness. 

 

Your back neck and shoulders are the most vulnerable to stress and tension.  Keeping these muscles in a good condition will prevent pain, knots, and stiffness.

 

Help to ease tension headaches and Migraines

 

Regular treatments can reduce the frequency and intensity of stress-related headaches and help people cope better with headache episodes.

 

 

Contributing factors to headaches have been shown to include poor postures and repetitive movements that may strain your neck.  Poor postures or bad habits can cause muscle spasm, muscle imbalance and weakness as well as strain the joints in your neck all of which can refer pain to the head and result in a headache.

 

Often tension in the upper back, neck, and head can lead to migraines, headaches and back pain.  Applying pressure to points in these can release muscles and knots. Removing headache-causing blockages in the neck and head can encourage better circulation of the cerebral fluid.

 

Relieves sleeplessness, restlessness, and insomnia

 

Stress can make it hard to relax and can cause restlessness and insomnia.  By alleviating the physical side effects of stress, the body can relax and detoxify, allowing for better sleep and a general feeling of wellbeing.

 

Detoxifies the body by stimulating lymphatic drainage

 

Indian Head Massage stimulates and improves lymphatic drainage and blood flow to the neck thus helping to remove waste products from the body.

 

Boosts memory capabilities

 

The downfall of a busy lifestyle is an overloaded brain, memory problems, and disorganised thoughts. 

 

Indian Head Massage slow you down, relax, detox and quiet your thoughts.  It stimulates blood flow and oxygen to the brain and can boost your memory capabilities.

 

Renews energy levels

 

An Indian Head Massage works with the Ayurvedic concept which goes beyond the limits of healing and places emphasis on balance. Working on the chakras through Indian Massage has a powerful effect in bringing the energy of the body back into balance.

 

Relaxes the whole body

 

Indian Head Massage is a combination of massage, acupressure techniques, manipulating soft tissues on the upper back, shoulders, neck, head, and face to help ease a variety of stress-related conditions and relieve muscular tension.

 

Indian Head massage improves circulation and therefore oxygen uptake in the tissues are increased.  This helps the whole body relax.

 

 

Soothing for Eyes and Sinuses

 

There are few pressure points in the face, around the eyes and cheekbones that can be stimulated to help relax and soothe tense muscles, eye strain and can also be useful to relieve blocked sinuses.

 

It can also provide relief from Earache, Tinnitus and Aching Jaws from clenching or grinding teeth

 

 

Benefits the Nervous System

 

Indian Head massage applies pressure to certain points, stimulating a range of nerves, underlying joints, muscles, and internal organs, creating a feeling of wellbeing and relaxation.

 

The benefits of a soothed nervous system can range from reduced levels of depression and anxiety to relaxed muscles to an increase in the production of feel-good, pain-killing neurotransmitters such as endorphins.  It can also relieve insomnia and feelings of restlessness.

 

Problems with entrapped nerves, acute and chronic pain can also be reduced through Indian Head Massage.

 

It helps unblock congestion throughout the body enabling improved neural communication.
