Serenity And Spirit ~ Indian Head Massage
This is an excellent treatment to alleviate stress and bring an overall sense of peace and relaxation.
Indian head massage releases stress that has accumulated in the tissues, muscles and joints of the head, face, neck and shoulders. It is especially good for relieving tension, fatigue, insomnia, headaches, migraine and sinusitis.
It is a calming & relaxing experience leaving you feeling energized and refreshed and better able to concentrate.
It is based on the ancient Ayurvedic healing system and has been practiced in India for over 1000 years, originally for the women to keep their hair in beautiful condition.
If you feel stress, tension will accumulate in the muscles around the head and neck. This leads to poor blood flow and possible headaches.
At the beginning of the treatment, the patient’s mind is usually very active – many thoughts cluttering their mind. As the treatment progresses their breathing slows, the mind quietens and they are able to relax. For such a gentle treatment the results can be quite astonishing.
For this form of IHM no oil is used on the head and hair itself, although your hairstyle may not completely survive!
The patient remains clothed and seated throughout the session. The head, neck, shoulders and arms are treated. The patient then leans forwards where the back is treated. To finish, the patient sits up and the head is massaged again.
