Benefits of Indian Head Massage

1. Relieves Headaches and Migraines

Tensions in the mid back, neck and head can lead to headaches and migraines. Your massage will focus on applying pressure to the mid back, arms and shoulders to reduce tension in the muscles. Massage around the neck and head encourages circulation of cerebral fluid and reduce headache causing blockages.

2. Stimulates Lymphatic Drainage

The lymphatic system removes waste products from the tissues and back to the heart. Indian head massage aids in this process by stimulating circulation, encouraging the natural drainage of the lymph. It also helps in bringing new nutrients and oxygen to cells.

3. Relieves insomnia and Fatigue

Indian head massage relieves stress and tension within the body by promoting relaxation. This allows a deep sense of well being and relaxation, which in turn affects your sleep cycle.

4. Relieves Anxiety and Depression

Massaging the head encourages the supply of oxygen to the brain which is one of the best ways of reducing anxiety and of lifting one’s mood. Oxygen helps you think clearly and creatively and a similar effect is experienced through exercise.

5. Boost Memory Capabilities

Often we have short-term memory difficulties because our brains are overloaded with disorganised thoughts, making it very difficult for us to efficiently ‘log’ and collect thoughts and occurrences. Indian Head Massage slows us down, sensual awareness takes over, thoughts quieten and awareness is brought to the forefront.
