Ayurveda Head Massage
An Indian Head Massage is given with the client sitting in a comfortable chair throughout the treatment. There is no need to remove clothing although it should be noted that a cotton top or T-shirt is probably the most comfortable thing to be wearing. Some clients prefer to remove their top to prevent any oil staining.
The treatment normally begins with a deep kneading and probing of the neck and shoulder muscles. It is similar to Osteopathy but with no crunching or cracking of joints. The head is then worked with the scalp being squeezed, rubbed, gently tapped and prodded. The hair is briskly tussled and gently combed. Pressure points are gently worked on and the ears are tugged and pressed. Lastly the practitioner moves to the face, working with acupressure points to help relieve any sinus pressure, stimulate the circulation and increase alertness. The face is also very gently stroked.
The benefits of this massage include; alleviation of stress, stimulations the lymphatic system, stimulates hair growth, improves concentration and relieves migraine pain.
