Indian Head Massage
Shiro Abhyanga - Indian Head Massage
Shiro abhyanga, more commonly known as Indian Head Massage, is just one small part of an ancient healing system called Ayurveda, which has been used in India for thousands of years. Ayurveda highlights the importance of balancing body, mind and spirit to promote a long and healthy life.
This unique type of massage uses a combination of massage and stimulation of marma energy points in the head, neck and face to provide a sense of balance and well-being whilst being deeply relaxing. Circular motions are used to unblock energy in the joints, whilst long strokes clear pathways making you feel revitilised and rejuvenated.
Usually given in a seated position, Indian head massage incorporates not just the head, but also the neck, face, shoulders and arms.
Shiro abhyanga has many benefits. Increased circulation to the head, neck and shoulders can help to relieve tension and soreness, especially for those who have tight shoulders or suffer from tension headaches, and it can bring vitality to the skin and hair. The relaxation provided by Indian head massage can help you to unwind and sleep better.
Traditionally, specially selected organic oils are used to suit your specific needs including your particular ayurvedic constitution (read more here). The oils nourish the skin and hair, helping them to look and feel more healthy. Your head massage can also be given without oil if preferred.
