Indian Head massage releases tension in the head, neck, shoulders and arms. It works by relaxing muscle tension in these areas, increasing blood flow and rebalancing the upper three Chakras. If energy flow is blocked in these chakras it can have a negative effect on the whole person – physically, emotionally and spiritually.
What can it treat?
Indian head massage is a great stress reliever. Lowering stress levels in itself will have a positive effect on the body and mind. Indian head massage can also be very beneficial at helping:
- neck, shoulder and arm pain
- increase concentration
Chakra is the Sanskrit word meaning wheel or vortex. It consists of 7 energy centres which regulate the flow of energy around our bodies. This energy cannot be seen physically but is in aspects of our counsciousness and we can learn to connect with it if we choose. How the energy flows reflects the way we respond to our life circumstances and interacts with our physical body through the endocrine and nervous systems.
When you experience tension or stress in your consciousness you feel it in the physical body and thus the chakra associated with the part of your consciousness experiencing the stress. This tension in the chakra is detected by nerves and if he tension continues over a long period of time or is a high level of intensity the person may create a symptom on a physical level.
Today’s Indian head massage combines the traditional Indian and western style to give maximum benefit. It has been found that rebalancing the three upper chakras (crown, third eye and throat chakras) has a positive effect on the whole energy system, thus calming and restoring the body, mind and spirit.
