Indian Head Massage is based on the ancient Ayurvedic healing system passed down from generation to generation within ancient India. It is a holistic therapy incorporating mind, body and spirit. The treatment has been practised in India for over a thousand years, originally to keep hair in beautiful condition by stimulating blood flow to the scalp nourishing the hair and roots.
It is believed that three of the major energy centres of the human body can be found in and around the head. These are the brow, the crown and the throat. Acting on a physical, mental and subtle level, Indian head massage stimulates these important energy centres, so helping to maintain the important balance of energy within the body, which in turn promotes a sense of well being, positive energy and relaxation.
Indian head massage includes massage of the shoulders, upper arms, neck, scalp, face and ears. It is a wonderfully relaxing therapy that is safe and very effective at relieving aches, pains, stress and rebalancing energy flow to provide deep sense of peace, calm and tranquillity.
The treatment lasts 30 minutes, is done in a seated position and fully clothed.
There is a lot of wonderful conditioning oil used in the hair, so please plan to have your hair tied up or covered after your massage.
