Indian Head is a technique that helps stimulate circulation and relieve tension in the head, neck, and shoulder. It is particularly beneficial to relieve stress, tension, fatigue, insomnia, headaches, migraine and sinusitis and increase mental clarity.
Indian head massage is especially helpful to people who are ‘desk bound’ and experience pain and tension in the upper body. Additionally, Indian Head massage has been useful for relieving tension headaches, eyestrain, and ear problems. People suffering from insomnia, neck and shoulder stiffness, hair loss or hair thinning, scalp tension can benefit as well
A massage therapist will start the Indian Head Massage by applying pressure to points in the upper back, arms and shoulders that will release muscles and knots. They will then move to the neck and head to reduce headache-causing blockages and encourage better circulation of the cerebral fluid.
Indian Head Massage stimulates and improves lymphatic drainage and blood flow to the neck thus helping to remove waste products from the body.
