Indian Head Massage is both relaxing and invigorating and can be received seated or lying, clothed or unclothed and with or without the use of oil.
In many parts of India massage is still an integral part of family life, often starting in the womb, a pregnant woman will be massaged in order to maximise the chance of the baby being in the correct position at birth. After birth both mother and child are massaged every day for 40 days. After this period of time the child will continue to be massaged daily until around the age of 3. The child will continue to receive regular massage until around the age of 6 where they will then be deemed old enough to give as well as receive massage.
Indian Head Massage is very popular with Indian women who apply oils to enhance the condition of the hair and scalp. Indian Head Massage is often performed by 3 generations simultaneously – daughter, mother and grandmother. Is it any wonder Indian women often have such long shiny hair!
We hold so much tension in our face, scalp and upper body that an Indian Head Massage can often bring about a profound shift.
If you are new to massage then an Indian Head Massage is a great place to start!
