What is Indian Head Massage?
Indian Head Massage is based on the ancient system of medicine known as Ayurveda. This has been in practice in India for thousands of years. The Ayurveda view of health is physical, emotional and spiritual wellbeing and is maintained by the balance of the 3 life giving forces or doshas: vata, pita, and kapha. This treatment is traditionally done at the barbers or in a family setting amongst family members in India with focus on only the head.
What to expect from your Indian head massage treatment
I do a ” westernised” version of this treatment focusing not only on just the head, but the shoulder girdle, hands, arms, and neck. Indian head massage has many benefits such as promotion of rest and relaxation, reduction of stress, elevation of mood, prevention of headaches, promotion of healthy hair growth, and furtherance of clearer thinking. I use a variety of techniques such as effluarage, petrissage, percussion, compression/ friction or vibration.
What to expect during your Indian head massage appointment
Together we do a 5-10 minute consultation in which we discuss lifestyle and reasons for wanting treatment. This treatment is done while seated. You have the option to have it without oils fully clothed or with oils wrapped in a towel. It is up to you! Both are very relaxing and beneficial.
