SWEDISH AND INDIAN HEAD MASSAGE
SWEDISH MASSAGE AND INDIAN HEAD MASSAGE
Swedish Massage is the bedrock from where other techniques such as Deep Tissue and Sports Massage have evolved. It is, therefore, the more gentle of treatments using methods of kneading (petrissage), stroking (effleurage) and gentle percussion moves.
As well as being a very relaxing massage it is also beneficial. As the body relaxes, blood flow increases allowing the fresh oxygen to replenish the cells around the body enabling the body to rebalance and repair.
INDIAN HEAD MASSAGE
Based on the ancient Ayurvedic tradition that still continues today, Indian Head Massage is believed to help with relieving stress, easing muscular tension and promoting an improved and overall general feeling of wellbeing.
This massage technique can be deeply relaxing, however for some it can also be completely invigorating.
Indian Head Massage is carried out in a sitting, fully clothed position, beginning massage to the upper back, shoulders, arms, neck and scalp, finishing with an optional gentle massage to the face.
