Benefits of Indian Head Massage
By concentrating on the areas most vulnerable to stress and tension it provides a de-stressing programme for the whole body. Relieving tension in these areas unlocks the energy trapped in the muscles, encouraging the flow of the blood and thereby energising the body. The results of freeing up this energy are felt on a mental physical and spiritual level. By stimulation the lymphatic system the process of elimination of toxins is encouraged, and the body is cleansed.
Massage of the face and scalp reduces the number of tension headaches and in some cases eliminates them. Increased blood flow to the scalp encourages and supports strong hair and encourage hair growth.
