Indian Head Massage is safe and simple yet effective therapy that not only promotes hair growth but also provides relief from aches and pains.
A non invasive natural therapy that is renowned for relieving the symptoms of tension, stress and mild anxiety associated with everyday modern living.
How Does It Work
Head Massage has far reaching effects on every one of body’s systems. It supports the nervous systems by alleviating stress. By stimulating the lymphatic system, it helps with the process of elimination of toxins and impurities from the body thus encouraging the body to cleanse itself. The circulatory and immune system is stimulated and the respiratory system is reinforced as deep breathing is encouraged.
The shoulder area acts as a buffer between the mind and the body, with attitudes to responsibilities, fear and suppressed feeling all being reflected in this area. In addition, muscles in the body tighten due to emotional and physical stress. The tight muscles impede the free movement of the neck and shoulders thus causing pain and discomfort. Indian Head Massage helps release tension and stress by using a variety of stimulation and tension releasing techniques.
Indian Head Massage and Stress
In modern society, we tend to speed through life as though there is no tomorrow, some people find it increasingly more difficult to cope with the stress of day-to-day living. People who in the past felt they had a job for life are now finding that due to redundancy, ill health they now have to change careers.
Society today and especially employers emphasize youthfulness and agility in the work place over experience and maturity. Making the modern day work place, a cutthroat place with an emphasis on an economic outlook rather than experienced and dedicated staff.
As people feel more and more pressurized at work, at home with their partner and children etc.. so their stress level increases thus leaving their body to slip in to a state of imbalance which stops the body from healing itself as it should do in order to keep body and mind working efficiently.
The transition from the state of imbalance to a state of balanced state requires a gentle and harmless process, which can be provided by a course of Indian Head Massage.
The Benefits of touch and a sense of well being

There are many touch or massages therapies but they all are base on the common principle that for good health. The body’s independent process needs to be kept in a state of correct balance and flow, when the flow is impeded a state of stagnation occurs and a particular area of body becomes increasingly out of balance.
