Holistic Indian Head Massage
Indian head massage is based on the Ayurvedic system of healing which originates from India around 3000yrs ago.
The Ayurvedic technique works with the marma points (similar to acupressure points) through massage to release the stress and toxins which have accumulated in the tissues, muscles and joints of the upper back, shoulders, neck, scalp, ears and face.
It also works on the organs and systems of the body.
The definition, a marma point is a juncture on the body where two or more types of tissue meet, such as muscles, veins, ligaments, bones or joints.
There are 37 of these key points on the head and neck, Yet interestingly marma points are much more than just connection of tissue and fluids; they are intersections of the vital life force (prana, Ki, Qi or vital life energy, the subtle body).
Marma therapy is an important part of ayurveda. Effective conditioning of these points can improve and maintain a good health balance, cleanse blocked and stagnating energy as well as improving the circulation and lymphatic drainage.
I will perform a series of massage techniques on the neck, head and face.
Indian Head Massage is non-invasive, you can remain fully clothed and special needs can be accommodated.
