Indian Head Massage

An Ayurvedic treatment

Indian head massage is so much more than a back massage or head massage! This is an Ayurvedic treatment which dates back over a thousand years. Massage has a long-standing history in Indian cultures with traditions and techniques being passed down through family members. It is very common for them to give and receive daily head massages.
Traditionally done in a seated position, although at Tranquil Touch the client will have the option if they would like to sit or feel they would be more comfortable laying down back massage. Your back will be warmed up with rhythmic sweeping strokes. Then, with deeper pressure, but always to your comfort level, your therapist will stretch out the muscles on either side of your spine, up and across your shoulders, down into your arms, and along your neck. This will help to loosen any areas of tightness and tension, reducing aches and pains.

Your massage will continue from your neck up into your scalp. The face is also massaged which can be incredibly relaxing and calming, allowing you to unwind. Tightness and tension along the forehead, cheeks and jaw can be eased which can help with teeth grinding or clenching and headaches.
