Can Indian Head Massage Reduce Tension Headaches?

By October 13, 2017News

What is an Indian Head Massage?

Indian head message is a deeply relaxing massage therapy that has been practiced in India for over 1000 years. The reason it has stood the test of time is for its ability to create deep relaxation within the mind, body, and spirit. Indian Head Massage has a long list of health benefits. However, we have narrowed these down to create a list of the top four benefits for our clients. Here are the four main reasons why you need to try an Indian head massage:

  1. Helps prevent migraines, headaches, and back pain

Tension in the upper back and neck can lead to migraines, which can be difficult to manage and makes everyday tasks harder to manage. Indian Head Massage can release areas of pain and tension by applying gentle pressure to the upper back arms and shoulders, the massage will then move to the neck and the head to further release pressure and increase your blood flow and improve your circulation.

  1. Promotes hair growth

Another side effect of Indian Head Massage is the stimulation of hair growth caused by increased nourishment and oxygen to the scalp and hair follicles. A one-way ticket to long, luscious locks! The massage oils can also help to keep your scalp and hair in great condition.

  1. Improves sleep problems

Massage boosts the production of melatonin in the body. Melatonin is responsible for controlling your natural sleep-wake cycle. Boosting your levels of melatonin through a relaxing massage will put you into a state of quiet wakefulness that helps promote sleep. Indian Head Massage can relieve stress and promote relaxation by attacking the physical symptoms of stress, allowing for a deeper sense of wellbeing and relaxation. Stress is a common cause of many sleep disorders, and a head massage is a great way to relax and unwind.

  1. Relieves symptoms of anxiety and depression

Massaging the head encourages the supply of oxygen to the brain, one of the best ways of reducing anxiety and lifting your mood. The massage can help you to think more clearly and feel more awake.
