Indian Head Massage

Indian Head Massage Hitchin

Amoré offers this fabulous modern take on an ancient treatment with its origins tracing back to India using a traditional system of medicine “the science of life and longevity”. It is based around the balance within the body, mind & spirit and encourages the promotion of long life.

Indian head was originally designed for use on the head but today we practice a western version which includes the shoulders, upper arms and neck as these are areas vulnerable to stress.

The indian Head treatment is primarily a form of of stress management and some of the effects and benefits include:

  • Increased blood flow to the head, neck and shoulders which nourishes the tissues, improving circulation and encouraging healing.
  • Increased lymphatic flow to the head, neck and shoulders which aids the elimination of accumulated toxins and waste products, reduces oedema and stimulates immunity.
  • Encourages healthy hair growth with increased circulation to the scalp and can improve the condition of the skin and hair.
  • Stimulates the release of endorphins from the brain which help relieve pain, emotional stress and repressed feelings, elevates your mood and can help anxiety and depression.
  • Activates the parasympathetic nervous system which encourages the body to rest, relax and contributes to better sleep.
  • Increases the supply of oxygen to the brain which relieves mental fatigue, promotes clearer thinking, improves concentration and productivity.
