ndian Head Massage has been common practice in India for over a thousand years as an integrated part of everyday family life – a form of grooming. This treatment includes the face, ears, neck, shoulders and upper arms and can have an extremely calming effect on the nervous system of the entire body,

The treatment works on the areas around the head most affected by physical, mental and emotional stress, due to positioning of our nerve endings around this area. In Western culture today we spend much of our time” in our heads”, so this treatment not only quietens the mind and helps with the cessation of thoughts, but releases any fatigue being experienced by the recipient and is deeply relaxing.

Working with a firm and gentle rhythm it helps to relieve any muscular discomfort/ tension and also improves blood circulation in the head, enhances the senses and promotes clear thinking. This is a truly wonderful complimentary therapy performed in isolation, but it also works well as the ‘finishing touch’ to all the other treatments provided at The Healing Heart.
