Relieve tension with an Indian head massage

We offer Indian Head Massage treatments at our clinic in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire.

Indian head massage is an ancient Eastern massage which works on areas affected by mental and emotional stress.


What is an Indian Head Massage?

In Western culture today we spend much of our time in our heads, so this treatment can really help to calm the mind and is surprisingly deeply relaxing.

Working with a firm and gentle rhythm it helps to relieve muscular discomfort and tension as well as calming the spirit and aiding relaxation, it also improves circulation in the head, enhances the senses and promotes clear thinking.

The massage usually begins with the upper back, where a combination of deep massage and pressure points help to relax the muscles and to loosen and melt knots.

Moving through the shoulders and upper arms further releases the common spots for holding stress and tension, and then working deeply into the neck where tension accumulates relieves headaches and improves cerebral spinal fluid circulation.

Moving up to the scalp, techniques are used that stimulate, relax and revive the whole of the head, increasing circulation and promoting healthy hair.

Finally the treatment may include a gentle face massage with techniques that help circulation, skin tone, and sinus and headache problems.


Benefits of Indian Head Massage

Indian head massage is ideal for relieving tension in the neck, shoulders, scalp and face, and can help combat stress, sinusitis, migraine, insomnia and muscular strain.
