Indian Head Massage
is Head Massage?
Head Massage has been practiced informally for over 1000 years in the homes of Indian women. In villages many different patterns of the massage are carried out with the reason for it’s popularity being that Indian women, and some men too, believe that Head Massage keeps hair healthy and delays the stage of greying. Various oils such as coconut, sesame, almond and olive oil contribute towards the lustrous look and growth of the hair. Scalp massage revitalises circulation at the hair roots and oil nourishes the living growing hair. Tight and flaky scalps are an increasingly common symptom of our stressful lives.
A very important feature of Indian Head Massage is the easing of tension and sense of relaxation, well-being and peace that it brings. Headaches and heaviness are relieved, muscles un-knotted and other parts of the body respond to this relaxed state.
|A Head Massage takes 50 – 60 minutes depending on how much work is needed on the upper back, shoulders and neck. It only requires a chair for the receiver to sit on and therefore can be effectively given in an office or home environment. The upper back and shoulder work can be done through clothes but is more effective working directly on the skin. It is usually done with dry hands but if using an oil on the hair, it should be left in eight hours before shampooing.
