Indian Head Massage
Indian Head Massage is based on an ancient Indian healing system called Ayurveda, which means "knowledge of life." The modern Indian Head Massage combines shiroabhyanga (the original family head massage), champi (more commonly found in barber shops in India) and acupressure points. The method is not meant to be curative, but rather preventative and to reduce the progress of prevailing conditions of illness. Indian mothers for over 4000 years have given weekly Indian Head Massage to their children. The points balance and clear energy blockages. Indian Head Massage supports the nervous system by alleviating stress, encouraging the elimination of toxins, increasing oxygen uptake in tissues and improving concentration.
I offer Indian Head Massage in Portland, Oregon, which lasts anywhere between 15 and 25 minutes, depending on the amount of tension in a patient’s scalp and face, as well as their concerns. Many of my patients who had never experienced Indian Head Massage before rave about it and add it onto their service each time due to its relaxing and tension reducing capabilities.
