Indian Head Massage Benefits.
Indian Head Massage is an extremely relaxing treatment to receive. Its benefits many.
This treatment is given in a seated position or carried out with client lying on a treatment couch. Warmed coconut oil is used as it is extremely nourishing and conditioning for the hair and scalp.
This treatment can also be carried out without oil to the head if client prefers.
Indian Head Massage begins at the shoulders and around the shoulder girdle, continues across the muscle tissue at the top of the shoulder up to the base of the neck. The delicate area of the neck itself is massaged carefully. Tension is teased and eased from these areas and the circulation begins to flow and a more normalized way to the head.
Tension may have built up due to emotional stress. Sitting at the computer at work for many hours is not natural for us and can be detrimental to the functions of the neck. The neck is a very important part of the body. The circulation of blood and nervous impulses to and from the brain have to travel through the neck and it often neglected. Life can be a constant rush. Build up of stress can cause headaches, fuzzy thinking and lack of concentration and a general lack of energy. Stress exacerbates other illnesses that we may be suffering from.
Massage to the scalp using specific techniques to Indian Head Massage releases the stress that we hold in the head area. The pressure is adjusted to suit the client as each is an individual and no two people require the same depth of touch. Light pressure is used especially for a child and an older person. The whole treatment aims to improve the circulation and remove the feeling of tightness that can afflict the sheet of muscle that covers this area. This stimulates growth and condition of the hair but also more importantly gives a feeling of release of mental stress.
The massage of the face and brow is optional. Many people however benefit from a facial massage as it is surprising how much tension we hold around the jaw line, the frowning forehead and furrowed brows. As the face relaxes with light massage techniques the tension in this area is stroked away. When the face relaxes so does the whole body, and the client leaves the treatment room feeling revitalized, uplifted and renewed.
