Indian head massage is an ancient therapeutic practice that has been used in India for over 5000 years. This massage is a part of an alternative medicine called Ayurveda, (science of life), that believes mind, body and soul are intricately connected and influence one another. Indian head massage is known for curing headaches, improving physical, mental and emotional well-being. Since childhood Indians observe head massage as a weekly activity in every home. In fact, head and body massage is received by every infant and new mother for at least 40 days after the birthing process as a tradition so both mother and child can receive benefits from it and get healthy quickly. Indians prefer the use of oils but you could ask for one without oil if you choose. It is usually done while seated and through light clothing. This is a deep massage, using a variety of pressure and techniques, including circular massage, strokes on your scalp, deep tissue work on your shoulders, and stretching the neck along with easing the face muscles and the jaw. Indian head massage has become a popular addition to spa treatments or rituals, such as massage and facials. A typical Indian head massage treatment, usually starts with the shoulders, working into this area especially as it often holds a lot of tension. The upper back may also be massaged working around the shoulder blade. Following this, flowing motions will move up the neck massaging and stretching to relieve any stress and tension. Finally, the scalp is massaged along the pressure points on the head, followed up by the forehead and the area around the eyes. The upper back and arms can also be massaged depending on the techniques being used. Indian head massage may help increase joint mobility and flexibility in the neck and shoulders, may improve blood circulation and lymphatic flow, can free knots of muscular tension, may relax connective tissue, and may aid in the elimination of accumulated toxins and waste products.
