Indian head massage

Indian head massage is a technique of manipulating soft tissues in the shoulders, scalp and face. The therapist uses a range of different massage pressures and rhythms to stimulate the head and neck area.

 

This wonderful ancient treatment usually begins with working on the the upper back and shoulders. A combination of deep massage techniques and using pressure on release points helps to relax and loosen the muscles. Moving upwards, from the back into the shoulders and upper arms it helps release tension in muscles caused by stress and tension.  

Continuing with the upward movement, the scalp is then massaged using techniques that stimulate, relax and revive the entire head and scalp. This increases circulation and promotes healthy hair growth and of course deep relaxation. Last but by no means least, you will receive a gentle face massage to aid circulation, improve skin tone, aid lymph drainage (thus reducing any puffiness) and maintain good sinus health.
