Ayurvedic Indian Head Massage
The Indian Head Massage (IHM) or shirobhyanga, is a healing modality that has its roots in the science of Ayurveda. This massage technique, practiced with the client seated, has a deeply relaxing and rejuvenating effect through work on the “marma” or pressure points and various massage techniques on the head and face.
The massage takes from 1 to 2 hour, and includes the upper back, arms, neck, and shoulders, scalp, face and focuses on releasing tension in the body, as well as mental stress.
Indian Head Massage is beneficial in relieving headaches and migraines, stress, insomnia, it clears sinuses and helps in draining lymphatic system, relaxing the “computer shoulders” and healing depression and anxiety.
This amazing healing modality works on an energetic, emotional and physical level. The oils used on the scalp are optional and are wild-crafted organic Ayurvedic oils, used traditionally to relieve stress, nourish the scalp and address issues of hair loss and dry scalp.
