What are the Benefits of Indian Head Massage?
At Jenkins Soft Tissue Therapy we believe that touch is a power tool to help reconnect the mind and body. The body’s soft tissue structures are interconnected with layers of fascia, this fascia is innovated with nerves which help us sense, touch and feel our world around us. Stress and injury can have a profound effect on the nervous system and how the body adapts to these mechanical stresses can cause pain and tension – especially in the head, neck & shoulders! Throughout your treatment your massage therapist will work with you to understand and relieve any problem areas and release tension in tired and over worked muscles.
- Relief from tension-type headache
- Relief from jaw and neck pain
- Boosts mood and reduced stress
- Therapeutic relief whilst recovery from injury
- Relief from sleeplessness and restlessness
- Increased hair thickness
Who Is This Treatment For?
Indian Head Massage is a great treatment for anyone looking for deep relaxation, suffering from upper body tension or who struggle with lying down on a massage couch. If you suffer from tension type headaches an Indian Head Massage might just be the massage treatment you are looking for to help release those hard to reach areas around the head, neck & shoulders.
What differentiates Indian Head Massage from other Massage Treatments?
Unlike traditional massage treatments such as Deep Tissue or Hot Stones where you are lying down on a massage couch, you will receive your Indian Head Massage treatment from a seated position. From here your massage therapist can easily access those hard to reach areas around your head, neck & shoulders. This is the only massage treatment we offer that also massages the face, which can be incredibly soothing for those suffering from tension in their jaws and scalp. Using light stroking and percussive movement your massage therapist can help relieve trigger points in this area.
