Indian Head Massage

Where did it come from and what it is?

Indian head massage is a treatment that has been practised for over a thousand years. In Indian society a lot of focus is put upon the bodies ‘chakras’. There are seven main chakras (energy wheels which link to our physical body). It is suggested strongly that if there is a blockage in the chakra it can cause illness (such as depression, insomnia, sluggish circulation, to name but a few).

Indian Head Massage works on the higher chakra, perhaps (in relation to western concept) these chakras would be linked to our endocrine system which governs the “controlling” hormones within our bodies. In Indian society, however, the chakras relate to the emotional and spiritual alongside the mechanical aspects. The main intent of the Indian Head massage, therefore, is to open up the blockages and to allow the positive energy to flow through the entire body and, in the process, get rid of negative energy.

This Massage was also developed as a grooming technique to strengthen and improve the fullness of the hair. This is achieved by stimulation of the pressure points on the scalp. Gradually, this technique became part of everyday life and is often a tradition that is handed down through the generations. 

The Treatment

Indian Head Massage involves the client firstly sat upright, allowing work on the the shoulder blades, arms and neck area, followed by the head. At this point the treatment will continue with the client laying down. This involves continued work on the arms, neck and head, gradually introducing facial massage. The treatment is 45 minutes long.
