The other known Benefits of Indian Head Massage

Benefits of Indian head massage:

  • Hair – increases circulation to the scalp which helps improve hair condition and promotes healthy hair growth
  • Eyes – relaxes and soothes tense eye muscles
  • Skeletal system – helps increase joint mobility and flexibility in shoulders, neck and arm. It improves posture and reduces tension in the tissues making them more flexible which minimises the stress on bones and joints, reducing their need to overwork to compensate for muscles not working properly
  • Muscular system – improved circulation helps remove waste particularly lactic acid, from muscles reducing aches and soreness. The treatment of the head, neck and shoulder helps reduce tension, sinusitis and congestion. It stretches the tissues, increases flexibility, and releases tightness in overworked or tense muscles. Stress reduction helps prevent stress-induced muscle spasm in the back as well as shoulders and arms; reduction in inflammation or pain and headaches
  • Circulatory system – improves circulation, thus improving the delivery of nutrients and oxygen and speeding up the removal of wastes and toxins; lowers blood pressure
