Indian Head Massage at Ahmyo Healing

Indian Head Massage

Indian head massage is based on the Ayurvedic system of healing which has been practised in India for over a thousand years.Indian head massage is a deep massage, focusing on your head, neck and shoulders. The massage incorporates a variety of pressure and techniques that tap into your seven "'chakras" or paths of energy and encourage healing and balance in your whole body.

How does it work?

The aim of Indian head massage is to release the stress that has accumulated in the tissues, muscles and joints of the head, face, neck and shoulders.

The massage focuses on the three higher "chakras" (throat, third eye and crown) which can help you to feel detached and serene.It is a very relaxing massage and when combined with therapeutic grade essential oils, the benefits of distressing, soothing, relaxing and clearing your head can be enhanced even  further.

During an Indian Head massage, the client sits fully clothed in a massage chair. If essential oils are used in the massage it is beneficial for the client to remove their top. A range of massage movements, including application of deep kneading and compression movements are then applied over the neck, shoulder and scalp areas. In addition pressure points on the face will also be gently stimulated.

The session will usually last around 45 mins, although I always schedule an additional 30 mins in the event the client is in need of further relaxation, or wishes to discuss anything, following the treatment.

If this is your 1st visit to Ahmyo Healing, please add an additional 15 mins for the consultation process, prior to the treatment.

What is the massage good for?

Indian head massage is especially good for relieving stress, tension, fatigue, insomnia, headaches, migraine and sinusitis. Clients report that the experience is deeply calming and relaxing, leaving them feeling energised and revitalised and better able to concentrate.

What are the benefits of the massage?

Indian head massage helps increase joint mobility and flexibility in the neck and shoulders, improves blood circulation and lymphatic flow, frees knots of muscular tension, relaxes connective tissue, and aids in the elimination of accumulated toxins and waste products. It is particularly good for reducing the effects of stress and tension.

Are there any side affects or times when it should be avoided?

Following a treatment some clients experience tiredness, dizziness, an increased desire to urinate (as the body eliminates toxins and waste materials) or aching muscles. All of these side effects usually last for no more than a few hours, after which clients generally experience increased energy and alertness. Indian head massage should be avoided if you have had recent surgery, or a head or neck injury; a history of thrombosis or embolism; spondylitis or spondylosis. If you have high or low blood pressure, diabetes, Indian head massage is particularly good for reducing the effects of stress and tension epilepsy, any kind of heart condition, cancer or osteoporosis, talk to your doctor before arranging a treatment. Always make sure that you avoid alcohol the day of the treatment.
