What to expect before, during & after an Indian head massage
I will run through a few points with you before the treatment to make sure that it is safe to go ahead and to check whether any areas need particular attention or to be avoided. It is also your chance to ask any questions.
Indian head massage is conducted on a massage table, upper back and arms barred. The treatment is carried out in the following sequence: upper back, shoulders, upper arms, neck, scalp, ears and face. The treament include a variety of exquisite techniques, with include marma point (acupressure point) massage.
I use an oil suitable for your constitution (dosha), with optional oil for hair growth on the scalp or serum on the face.
The treatment can be for 30, 45 or 60 minutes.
As with other forms of massage, it is best to rest and relax after an Indian head massage to fully benefit from the effects. Drink plenty of water to help flush out any toxins that may have been released from the tissues. Eat lightly and healthily to reduce the strain on the body and promote healing.
