Indian Head Massage
by Dee McMath
Indian Head Massage is an ancient Hindu massage to the head, neck and shoulders, which is not only therapeutic and relaxing, but, with the use of certain oils, can also help to promote hair growth.
Ayurveda is ancient Indian for Knowledge of Life. The Indian Head Massage is one of the methods used for over 4,000 years to help towards overall good health. This wonderfully relaxing massage has become more and more popular in recent years and many health and beauty clinics in Andalucia have it on offer. Since the Andalucian people have not generally suffered from stress in the same way that Northern Europeans appear to be, this massage is available more along the area of the Costa del Sol, where many foreigners have settled. There are numerous alternative health clinics and beauty spas all along the coastline, many with English speaking staff, who are trained to give Indian Head Massage.
A good Indian Head Massage includes the use of special oils, which are also beneficial to hair growth. The treatment is very relaxing and often relieves tightness around the neck and shoulders and can cure headaches caused by nervous tension. Blood circulation is increased and more oxygen is released to the brain, thus stimulating stronger powers of concentration and energy.
The massage can be from 30 to 45 minutes and induces a wonderful feeling of calmness and wellbeing. In this fast track, modern world we live in, we are looking more to the ancient ways of Indian health care, Ayurveda. The idea of this system is for us to be more conscious of life and the Indian Head Massage is wonderful way to become aware of releasing tension and enjoying physical relaxation. Since this type of massage is said to improve nervous eyestrain, it may literally help you to see things more clearly.
