WHY INDIAN HEAD MASSAGE?

Indian head massage is derived from the ancient Ayurvedic healing system, which teaches self-care and prevention of illness. It is incorporated into people's daily routine to not only help maintain the hair in good condition, but also to stimulate the body's natural healing ability.

Indian head massage has been developing in Europe since the 1970s. It was introduced to the UK by Narendra Mehta, who came here to study physiotherapy. He adapted the traditional technique to target the specific negative effects that stress has upon our bodies, which include:

  • muscular tension
  • headaches
  • neck and shoulder stiffness
  • insomnia


    HOW IS INDIAN HEAD MASSAGE GIVEN?

    An Indian head massage treatment is given while you are seated and there is no need for you to remove any clothing. A variety of massage techniques is used on the shoulders, upper arms and neck as well as the head, because these are all areas that may become tense and painful due, for example, to stress or the postural effects of working at a desk for long periods.

    The massage is tailored to whatever you need - relaxation or revitalisation - and a lasting effect can be achieved with a short treatment. Repeated treatments can be even more beneficial.


    HOW CAN INDIAN HEAD MASSAGE BE HELPFUL?

    The benefits of Indian head massage are:

  • improved circulation
  • relief from muscular tension
  • it may be relaxing or stimulating
  • relief of stiffness in the neck and shoulders
  • improvement in symptoms such as headaches, insomnia and sinusitis

    For these reasons it is a valuable therapy to receive in the workplace, where pressures are plentiful and time is precious.
