Indian Head Massage comes from a rich tradition. Massage has always played an important part in Indian life, featuring in the earliest Ayurvedic texts from nearly 4000 years ago. Babies in India recieve a daily massage, infants receive massage once or twice a week and from the age of six are encouraged to share a massage with other family members.
Originally head massage was performed by the women in the family who care for their hair and also practiced by barbers offering "champi" (head massage) after a shave or a haircut. Our word "shampoo" derives from tbhe same word.
Healing through touch is a natural human instinct. We hug our friends when they are upset and if our neck feels sore we do a self massage in order to feel better, Indian Head massage formalise this natural healing histinct to want to heal ourselves and others.
Indian Head Massage works on the upper back, shoulders, neck, scalp, face and ears with a variety of massage movements - effleuarge, petrissage and tapotement - usually found in Swedish massage.
The head, neck and shoulders are important energy centres within your body. If you are feeling stressed or angry, tnesion builds up in the muscles in those areas. Indian Head massage works with a gentle rhytym to release blockages and unknot tense muscles. The effects are not only physical they can be calming for the spirit and promotes relaxation while relieving stress.
In addition to easing headaches and stress it can help with many other conditions such as scalp and hair problems, aids localised blood and lymphatic circulation, relieves eye strain, boosts the immune system and relieves muscle tension.
