Indian Head Massage is a treatment that has evolved from traditional techniques. IHM have been practised in India as part of a family ritual for thousands of years.
In Indian traditions, it is believed that massage preserves the body’s life force and energy. It is also believed that IHM is the most powerful way of relaxing and rejuvenating the body.
Indian Head Massage not only works on the scalp, as the name suggest but also on the face, neck, shoulders, upper back and arms. These are areas where we tend to feel the tension, perhaps arising from poor posture, an accumulation of emotional stress, or spending long periods behind the desk.
Some of the benefits of Indian Head Massage:
- Relief from pain and stiffness in the muscles of the face, scalp, neck, upper back and shoulders
- Increased mobility of the joints in the neck and shoulder area
- Increased energy levels
- Alleviation of stress, anxiety, lethargy and mild depression
- Relief from tension headaches, eye strain
