Stress reduction and anxiety
The massage is extremely effective for treating stress because it works on the areas of the body where we tend to carry stress - the upper back, neck, shoulders and head.
Indian head massage can also help to improve your overall sense of wellbeing, which in turn may also help to lower raised blood pressure and relieve anxiety.
The relaxing affect of Indian head massage can have a positive effect on your sleep, by encouraging deeper, more restful sleep and helping to reduce insomnia.
Reduces back/neck pain
The massage and stretching techniques used during an Indian head massage help to reduce muscle stiffness. Relaxing the muscles in the neck, shoulders, head and back and alleviating tension in these areas, helps to reduce pain and improves joint mobility.
When there is built-up tension in the head, neck, shoulders and upper back, it can often lead to headaches and/ or migraines. Similarly, when you are stressed this can result in tension headaches.
Indian head massage targets these areas, helping to reduce any muscle tension that could be causing the headaches, whilst the relaxing side of the massage will help to alleviate a tension headache.
