One of the main reasons people have Indian Head Massages is because they feel amazing. After a massage, people feel deeply relaxed, stress-free and clear headed. That is reason enough for having one but they do actually help alleviate headaches and migraines, relieve tension and stiffness in the neck, improve eye strain and remove sinus congestion. It can also have positive effects on tinnitus and other ear problems and, surprisingly, can help with hair loss and encourage your hair to grow. Massaging the scalp improves blood flow which allows oxygen and nutrients to reach your hair follicles and this is what encourages it to grow more thickly than before. Because Indian Head Massage relieves stress and releases feel-good hormones like serotonin and oxytocin into your body, it helps with symptoms of depression, anxiety and stress.
Like all our massage therapies at The Float Spa, when you book an Indian Head Massage, our therapist will talk through with you exactly what you’d like to get out of the massage so they can tailor the techniques they use to suit your needs and preferences. There’s no need to get undressed with this type of massage and it’s performed with you sitting upright rather than lying down. Our therapist will gently relax the muscles of your scalp, face, neck and shoulders before moving on to focus on any areas which are troubling you or, if you just want a lovely relaxing experience that will leave you feeling fabulous, will work through all these areas applying acupressure techniques and gentle massage strokes to deeply relax the tight muscles in your neck and shoulders as well as all the very small muscles and connective tissues of your head and face. The increased blood flow to the brain as well as the effect of deeply relaxing for an hour or more will leave you feeling revitalised and invigorated with a clear mind and no stress. Yes, it will leave your hair looking an absolute sight but it’ll do it good in the long term.
