Indian head massage is an ancient complementary therapy, based on the ayurvedic system of healing that has been practiced in India over for over a thousand years. This gentle form of massage therapy is part of Indian family life.
Part of the Hindu health care practice of Ayurveda, Indian head massage focuses on your head, neck and shoulders and was originally used to improve scalp and hair condition. It is a deep massage, using a variety of pressure and techniques, including circular massage strokes on your scalp, deep tissue work on your shoulders, and stretching the neck.
Indian head massage has become a popular addition to spa treatments or rituals, such as massage and facials.

Benefits of Indian head massage

This form of massage focuses on the three higher “chakras” – mind, body and spirit and as such hits your energy epicentre.

Indian Head Massage and Chakras

Chakras act as a link between the emotional and physical body. This is why balancing the chakras during an Indian head massage treatment can have such positive effects on the mind and body.

What are Chakras ?

There are seven main energy centres (chakras) of the body which resonate with the seven rainbow colours. Anyone who is familiar with Acupuncture will realise that there are, however, a large number of minor chakras throughout the body totalling something in excess of 300.

Chakras are like spirals of energy, each one relating to the others. Chakra (pronounced sha-kra) is the Sanskrit word for ‘ wheel ‘.

If you can imagine the main chakras/energy centres as a set of cogs/wheels, they are rather like the workings of a clock or an engine; each cog/wheel needs to move smoothly and at a similar speed for the clock/engine to work properly. Thus good health and well being is achieved by a balance of all these energies (or the smooth running of the cogs/wheels).
