Indian Head Massage
Indian Head Massage
Indian Head Massage is a revitalising therapy that relieves tension in the head, neck, shoulders, upper back and arms.
The Indian Head Massage Therapist uses a variety of techniques without oil to literally lift tension from the scalp, works across the temples and brow bone, loosens the ears, jaw and neck muscles, stimulates pressure points across the head, face and neck and into the trapezius muscles that connects out head and neck to our shoulders and spine, a common place for tension to build, particularly in office workers.
Expect to feel your stress dissolve and aches and pains melt away as the Indian Head Massage Therapist softly manipulates the muscles so that they are in a healthy position, she will gently rub the areas that stimulate blood flow into the whole muscle and give firm stretches to ease tightness, carefully manoeuvring your posture for maximum release.
You will be seated on comfortable chair with your lower back supported and encouraged to relax, the therapist may ask you to take some deep breaths to release tension from your posture as she comfortably adjusts your posture with very slight movements.
Your Indian Head Massage therapist usually works over clothes as the technique is built around gentle movements and friction which require no oil or skin contact to be effective.
This is a fantastic treatment to take before work or in a lunch break as you will feel more awake and alert afterwards, with more essential fluids such as lymph and blood reaching your brain, it can soften the shoulders for a more effective posture, meaning you are able to perform at your best and without any troublesome aches and pains. The Indian Head Massage Therapist may advise on some stretches you could practice to keep this soft posture active.
The primary aim of an Indian Head Massage is to release the stress that accumulates in the tissues, muscles and joints to the hardworking people of Southampton! The massage is applied to the head, face, neck and shoulders of the client and can use oils, although they are not essential to the massage. This massage is performed fully clothed so can be suited to places where it is not viable to do a full body massage.
