Indian Head Massage

What is Indian Head Massage?

Indian head massage is a relaxing holistic treatment that uses acupressure massage on the upper back, upper arm, shoulder, neck, and head. It aims to rebalance your body’s energies. Indian head massage was originally used to improve scalp and hair condition. It is a deep massage, using a variety of pressure and techniques, including circular massage strokes on your scalp, deep tissue work on your shoulders, and stretching the neck. 

The therapist will also manipulate facial pressure points to relieve sinus pressure, increase alertness and stimulate circulation. A patient’s ears may then be pressed and tugged, and their hair tousled.

Therapeutic and relaxing, Indian head massage is effective in treatment of stress-related ailments like migraines and headaches. It can be performed almost anywhere and requires less time than a body massage treatment, typically lasting about thirty to forty minutes.
