Indian Head Massage
The traditional art of Indian Head Massage is based on the ancient system of medicine known as Ayurveda, which has been practiced in India for thousands of years. Ayurveda is recorded as India's oldest healing system. The word 'Ayurveda' comes from Sanskrit and means the 'science of life and longevity'.
Despite its existence on the Indian subcontinent for thousands of years, Indian Head Massage has only recently started to gain popularity in the West. Though Indian Head Massage was originally designed for use on the head only, today it has been westernised to include other parts of the body
vulnerable to stress, such as the shoulders, upper arms and neck.
It is important to realise that there is a relationship between the head, neck, shoulders and upper arms and by incorporating these parts the treatment becomes more of a stress management treatment than a treatment designed to stimulate the head and improve the hair growth and condition.
Although the techniques are applied to the upper part of the body only (shoulders, upper arms, neck and head), collectively they represent a de-stressing programme for the whole body.
Indian Head Massage has therefore become a primary form of stress management treatment in the western world.
Clients seeking relief from stress and tension often find Indian Head Massage a convenient form of treatment to receive in that:
a) there is no need to undress
b) it is quick and effective in terms of results
c) it may be performed anywhere, due to its portable nature.
Today Indian Head Massage is one of the fastest growing complementary therapies.
An Indian Head Massage session takes approximately 45 minutes.
