There are numerous benefits of Indian head massage. In this blog, we’ve picked five of our favourites. They are: 

  • The elimination of insomnia and fatigue
  • Increased energy levels
  • Improved respiratory system 
  • Reduction of stress and anxiety
  • Rebalanced chakras. 

These Indian head massage benefits link to the practice of massaging acupressure points across the head. Although Indian head massage is a physical activity, its mental benefits are profound. Originating from an Indian alternative medicine system, the practice is based on the belief that the mind and body are intrinsically connected. This explains why so many of Indian head massage’s benefits provide mental, as well as physical, relief. 

Combats Insomnia and Fatigue

Focusing an entire massage session around the scalp, neck, and hairline works wonders for your sleep. 

Why? Well, we often hold stress in our upper bodies, creating issues with eye, jaw and neck tension, leading to poor sleep. In the worst-case scenario, this can develop into insomnia. Lack of sleep and insomnia can have some scary side effects. Insomnia can cause your work performance to suffer, as well as impact your judgement and sex drive — and make you more accident-prone. 

Feeling signs of burnout? Are you having a particularly busy season at work? Missing chunks of sleep more than three nights in a row? An Indian head massage is calling your name. 

The slow, soft strokes of an Indian head massage help to ease muscle tension and encourage the supply of oxygen to the brain. As a result, you’ll experience mental clarity and that all-important good night’s sleep. 

Improves Energy Levels

Working on the body’s energy centres, this tried and tested practice restores energy. 

Indian head massage focuses on three energy centres –– otherwise known as chakras. During the massage, your three higher chakras are attended to. These specifically connect with the cerebral cortex, central nervous system and pituitary gland, amongst others. Massage techniques exclusive to Indian head massage help to calm these energy centres, giving you more energy and heightened functionality. 

Whether you just want to feel more energised in general or feel particularly drained due to stress, a professional Indian massage is the ultimate relaxing experience, giving you a new lease of life. 

Benefits Breathing

Indian head massage benefits the respiratory system by forcing you to concentrate on deep breathing. The steady pace of an Indian head massage and the rhythmic movements of an expert masseuse will help you to fall into a natural rhythm. 

Breathwork is present in all of our adult massage services as it helps our clients make the most of their sessions. 

Slow breathing is something we tend to neglect in our day-to-day lives. Forgetting to stop and be present is something most of us are guilty of, meaning the majority of us could benefit from a short session dedicated to self-care. 

Reduces Stress and Anxiety

As with any massage service, clients can benefit from reduced stress and anxiety. 

Taking the time out to invest in self-care can contribute towards this benefit. But, Indian head massage’s focus on the upper body is what makes this form of massage truly relieving. 

With the reduction of muscle tension, clients will often feel spiritually and emotionally cleansed as well as physically attended to. The process of performing an Indian massage quietens the mind. In short, you’ll have more space to think and just be. 

We’ve long known that human touch reduces stress. Yet, with this targeted approach to massage, stress and anxiety dissipate faster, making this a highly effective practice. 

Rebalances Chakras

Many massage benefits are physical. In fact, these are the benefits we think of most often. But our favourites are often spiritual as these have a long-term effect. 

We’re passionate about helping to transform lives through the spiritual benefits of massage. Whether that’s increasing confidence, introducing clients to intimacy or simply taking away the troubles of everyday life to make way for more meaningful things. 

Indian head massage is a great way to do this, which is why it’s always been a staple on our list of services. As mentioned, an Indian head massage helps to rebalance your body’s higher chakras — the Crown Chakra (Sahasrara) and the Third-Eye Chakra (Ajna). The Crown Chakra sits at the top of your head and is the closest to spirituality. The Third-Eye Chakra is located between the eyes and the forehead and is what allows us to use our intuition. 

Rebalancing these chakras will give you access to a higher mental state, allowing you to experience long-term benefits for years to come.
