As the name implies, the Indian Head Massage is a form of massage therapy created in India thousands of years ago within the Ayurvedic medicine tradition.
Through a variety of different techniques, the massage works to release any blocked negative energy in the body that may be manifesting itself as disease or injury in any one of the seven Chakras (energy centres) of the body. It does so by applying 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.
At The Natural Wellbeing Centre of Romsey we call our Indian Head Massages, ‘Head in the Clouds’ and it can be taken as a 30 or 45 minute treatment with the longer session providing more time on the upper back and shoulders. It is often described by clients as pure bliss, and totally dreamy. I think it is impossible to remain tense or stressed when having this massage.
