Indian Head Massage:
Indian Head Massage is a wonderfully relaxing, seated and, if you prefer, clothed treatment which involves massage of the face, head, neck, shoulders, arms and upper back. It can help with neck pain & headaches, as well as sinus problems and is great for stimulating the hair follicles, encouraging hair growth! It has a deep effect on the entire body in its physical, psychological and spiritual forms. Virtually all illnesses are stress based in one way or another; Indian Head Massage is a marvellous 'de-stressor' leaving the body in a stronger position to heal itself. It can leave you in an almost mesmerised state of calm and well being.
Head massage has been practiced in India for over a thousand years, originally it was a social interaction between the women of a family or area. Amongst other scenarios when doing the washing at the river, whilst waiting for it to dry in the sun, the women would massage each other's scalps to keep their long, lustrous hair in good condition. Oils were used throughout the hair and on the scalp such as coconut oil, mustard oil, sesame oil, almond oil and olive oil. It is believed that regular massage of the scalp will promote the growth of strong, healthy hair. The treatment takes half an hour and can be an ideal introduction to massage.
