How does Indian head massage work?
Indian head massage, also known as shiroabhyanga, works by using different massage movements, such as compression and kneading, to stimulate endorphins to the brain and release accumulated stress in the tissues, muscles and joints of the head, neck, face and shoulders. The therapist also brings relaxation and relief by gently stimulating and stroking facial pressure points.
The benefits of these head massages include:
- Improved blood flow
- Reduced muscular tension
- Greater joint mobility
- Improved flexibility in the neck and shoulders
Indian head massage, which is normally undertaken seated and fully-clothed by a trained specialist therapist, is also believed to relax connective tissue around the head and shoulders as well as helping the elimination of toxins. A typical session lasts approximately 35 minutes and doesn’t usually feature the use of essential oils.
