Indian Head Massage
Indian Head Massage is a complete massage treatment, which involves working on the upper back, shoulders, neck, scalp and face. It is a traditional Indian treatment, which has now become popular in the West.
It can be a complete treatment with oils lasting for about 20 minutes or it is being very effectively used within the workplace environment as a 5 – 10 minute quick stress-busting treatment, which is completed dry and without the need for undressing.
The simplicity of the treatment is that it can be done anywhere! No clothing needs to be removed and only a chair is required.
The treatment works on the upper back, shoulders, neck, scalp and face, using a variety of massage movements to:
- Relieve accumulated tension in the muscles.
- Restore joint movement.
- Relieve headaches.
- Relieve eyestrain.
- Relieve tension in the face – particularly around the jaw.
- Aid sinus congestion.
- Aid the condition and health of the hair, particularly when combined with the use of natural, organic oils.
