Indian Head Massage features in the earliest Ayurvedic texts that date back nearly four thousand years. Benefits include: release from upper body tension, headaches, eyestrain, insomnia, sinusitis, renews energy, clarifies thinking, settles emotions and can help improve condition of scalp and hair.
Indian Head Massage can be a great help in reducing headaches caused by tension, eyestrain and stiffness in the neck and shoulders. Massage helps to eliminate the cause of the headaches as well as the symptoms. In the case of migraines, massage before an attack or when one is suspected, can help reduce the symptoms and extend the interval between attacks.
Treatment can be delivered through clothing or with oil applied, and works on the upper back, arms, neck, scalp, face and upper chakras (or energy centres). Oils are chosen according to your Dosha type. Each person’s constitution is controlled by a unique combination of three major bodily systems called Doshas. It is the balance of these that allows good health. Doshas are affected by factors such as diet, environment and lifestyle.
