History of Indian Head Massage

Head massage has always played an important part in Indian family life. Ayurvedic texts, dating back nearly 4000 years describe that, when massage is used in conjunction with herbs, spices and aromatic oils, it can have an important medical function, strengthening muscles, firming skin and also encouraging the body’s innate healing energy.

Head massage has been practised for over a thousand years by Indian women using different oils, to keep their long hair strong, lustrous and in beautiful condition. Barbers also gave head massage as part of the visit to them.

The technique has been developed over the years and in the present day  is considered a highly beneficial treatment by many therapists for a wide variety of  physical and emotional problems.

Benefits are believed to include:

  • Prevention of migraines and headaches
  • Stimulation of hair growth
  • Insomnia relief
  • Increased energy levels
  • Enhanced memory capacity

Different from body massage, an Indian Head Massage is usually given while the client is dressed and sitting in a chair enabling the treatment to be given in work situations and for those who are not comfortable being undressed or laying on a couch.
