It is a safe, simple and effective therapy that promotes hair growth and provides relief from aches and pains.
The client, fully clothed, sits in a massage chair for the treatment. 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. A range of different movements including application of deep kneading and compression movements are used over the neck, shoulder and scalp areas and gentle stimulation and stroke pressure points on the face. The session will usually last from twenty to forty-five minutes.
Indian head massage is especially good for relieving stress, tension, fatigue, insomnia, headaches, migraine and sinusitis.
