Indian head massage

Indian head massage has been practiced in India for over a thousand years but was restricted to the head and hair. Now because of the benefits it encompasses the neck, shoulders, and upper arms. Nowadays it's used to help increase mobility and flexibility in the neck and shoulders. It improves blood circulation, lymphatic flow and aids elimination of toxins and is particularly good for reducing the effects of stress and tension.

Indian Head Massage involves working with firm gentle rhythm to help un-knot blockages and release the build-up of tension. It is a safe, simple, yet amazingly effective therapy that not only promotes hair growth, but also provides relief from aches and pains. The head and shoulders are especially important energy centres within your body. If you are feeling stressed, angry, or upset then tension tends to accumulate here. This tension can later show up as a stiff neck and shoulders, eyestrain and sometimes even hair loss.

*It has been used to help numerous conditions including:

• Tension, headaches, & migraines.
• Tinnitus and other ear problems.
