What is Indian Head Massage
Indian Head Massage is a massage therapy that focuses on the head, face, neck, shoulders, arms and upper back area.
It has been practised in India for over 1,000 years and was bought to the UK in 1973 by Narendra Mehta.
How does Indian Head Massage work?
Indian head massage focuses on the three chakras (energy centres) of the upper body. There are seven chakras running from the base of the spine to the top of the head. When the chakras are not functioning correctly, the body's mind, body and spirit balance can be affected, leading to health problems.
Indian head message relaxes tension in muscle tissue around the head, face, neck, shoulders, arms and upper back. As these areas are relaxed and stimulated, blood flow increases and the energy balance is restored within the chakras. Stress, tension and toxins are subsequently released from the body.
