It doesn’t seem sufficient to say that a good Indian head massage will relax you. It’s more than this. It can make you feel detached and serene, leave you sighing and wordless, but also alert and clear-headed, alleviating brain fog and stress.

What is an Indian Head Massage?

Indian head massage is a relaxing holistic treatment involving applying acupressure techniques to the head, face, neck, and shoulders. Doing so aims to rebalance the body’s energies and promote relaxation.

This form of massage therapy is an ancient complementary practice based on the Ayurvedic healing system, utilised in India for over a thousand years. It is a gentle form of massage commonly practised in Indian families.

How does an Indian Head Massage help?

An Indian head massage stimulates blood flow, lymph and oxygen in your upper body and, therefore, may relieve sinusitis, relieve stress and help you sleep better. And because it is said to help cure headaches (even migraines), eye strain and anxiety, some say an Indian head massage can help you to concentrate better at work.

What’s involved in an Indian Head Massage?

Starting with you lying face down, your therapist will begin with a relaxing massage, using a range of pressures and techniques. They will perform deep tissue work on your shoulders, back and neck, stretching exercises, and circular massage strokes on your head and scalp to stimulate sensors and release hair tension.

You’ll then be asked to turn upright, and your therapist will continue to complete the Indian head massage, working on your shoulders, neck, head and face. The whole massage will take 45 minutes.

Indian Head Massage Benefits

This form of massage focuses on the three higher “chakras” – mind, body and spirit and hits your energy epicentre.

Indian head massage is more than just a way to relax. It can help you feel peaceful, calm, and refreshed while clearing your mind and easing stress. 

Even if you don’t experience this level of relaxation, this massage treatment offers all kinds of other benefits. It may relieve aches, pains, and tension in your neck, back, and shoulders, and it stimulates the hair follicles, which is said to improve the texture of your hair and encourage hair growth.
