About Indian Head Massage #01

What is Indian Head Massage?

Indian Head Massage is based on the ancient system of medicine known as Ayurveda, which has been practiced in India for thousands of years.

Ayurveda means the science of life and longevity" and its approach to health and long-life is the balance of mind, body and spirit. This health is maintained by the harmonisation and balance of 3 subtle life giving forces or doshas and each dosha has a role to play in the body.

When imbalance and disharmony occurs, it may lead to various ailments and health conditions.

There are seven Chakras or energy centres located around the body. Chakras are a way of describing the flow of subtle energy and are often said to relate to an endocrine gland, which the Chakra is thought to influence.

During times of stress, the Chakras lose their ability to synchronise with each other and become unbalanced, leading to energy blocks.

An accumulation of negative energy in the Chakras may lead to an emotional or physical condition in the form of pain or disease.

The head, neck and shoulders are important energy centres in the body and tension accumulates when you are stressed or angry. This tension may manifest itself as a stiff neck or shoulders, eye strain or in some cases, hair loss.

Every Indian Head Massage session allows time to balance the three higher Chakras, as these may promote balance and harmony throughout the whole body.
