Looking for a quick and easy way to de-stress? Book yourself in for an Indian head massage. The massage works through every part of the head to ensure that you feel fully relaxed. Often the masseuse will use organic oils which, are not only good for the hair and scalp, but stimulate the hair follicles and encourage hair growth.

This form of massage therapy was created in India thousands of years ago. It does not only focus on the head but also aims to relax the shoulders and neck.

The masseuse applies pressure to certain points on the neck, shoulders and head that correspond to each Chakra (which is a similar approach to that of reflexology). This unblocks the Chakras, and allows for a free flow of energy around the body, restoring the individual to optimum health and feelings of wellbeing.

Indian head massages are proven to be good for the mind and body. Some other benefits may include:

  • Relieving symptoms of anxiety and depression
  • Providing relief from stress and promotes relaxation
  • Improving concentration levels
  • Renewing energy levels
  • Increasing feelings of peace, calm and well being.
  • Boosting memory capabilities

So go ahead and treat yourself to an Indian head massage. Massage those worries away…
