An ancient art that has been practised for over a thousand years mainly by women in India, originally developed to keep their hair strong, lustrous and in good condition. Indian head Massage is a deeply relaxing massage involving the upper back, shoulders, arms, neck and head. It relaxes the layer of muscle covering the head, improving blood flow, nourishing the scalp and alleviating stress and anxiety. Charka (Ancient Ayurvedic Physician) who wrote text in Charka Samitha-“One who applies oil on his head regularly does not suffer from headache, baldness, greying of hair, nor does his hair fall. Strength of his head and forehead is especially enhanced; his hair becomes black, long and deep-rooted, his sense organs work properly; the skin of his face becomes brightened; applying oil on the head produces sound sleep and happiness.” The head, neck and shoulders are all energy centres where tension is most likely to accumulate. They are gently, firmly and rhythmically massaged until the pressure begins to fade. By stimulating scalp circulation, it relaxes the scalp and tones up the muscles, relieving eye strains, headaches, improving concentration, boosting the immune system and generally creating a feeling of wellbeing. It also eliminates muscle tension and restores joint movement by stretching and mobilising the tissues of the neck and shoulders, leaving you feeling relaxed and alert without feeling tense or tired. After Shiro Abhyanga you are likely to feel great: relaxed, serene, ache-free, clear-headed, ready to tackle that important report for work, run the children ragged round the park or fall asleep immediately.
