Indian Head Massage
Once again your arms gravitate towards the ground, the pain penetrates every muscle in your upper back, not allowing the free exercise routines, and chronic neck pain ruins your whole day. At every step, a stress paralyzed free thinking and making decisions in your life and does not allow for quiet moments of relaxation. Is it possible to counteract the illness without going to the doctor and carrying more pills? I will explain one way that might help you avoid and eliminate the ills you are facing. It is the Indian Head Massage.
Indian head massage is a very effective treatment derived from the forms of traditional massage practiced in India as a family ritual for over a thousand years. When performing an Indian head massage, the head, face, neck, arms, shoulders, upper back are treated. Although Indian head massage was known in India for many years, its popularity grew in the Western World only recently. This massage concentrates on selected areas of the body, especially neck and shoulders (where stress affects the major muscles groups), often bringing instant relief.
Indian head massage originated in an ancient system of medicine, known as Ayurveda. It has been developed in the Himalayas by enlightened sages. Underlying philosophy of Ayurveda is the belief, that health results from a harmony within the human body.Ayurvedic theory asserts that holistic approach, which includes exercise, diet, meditation and massage with herbal essential oils, will help create harmony in all aspects of our lives.
Indian head massage is an established method of cleansing and healing the body. Its practice can achieve joy and inspiration. This tradition is still maintained in modern India. Indian head massage techniques are based on the ancient system of healing, which uses the upper chakras. The head, more than other parts of the body, represent our identity. This is who we are. They are the centre of the nervous system, the centre of intelligence and individuality.
Stimulating the chakra at the top of the head(Crown chakra), we connect with our higher consciousness.Head massage also relieves the symptoms of stress, i.e. in congested eye muscles causing headaches, neck and shoulders stiffness.
The skull is covered with a thin layer of muscles that tense up, when we are tense, resulting in headache, general anxiety. Indian head massage by relieving the scalp muscle tension improves blood circulation in the brain, eliminates anxiety and relaxes the whole body.
Shoulders, area along the spine, neck, face are energy centres, whose adequate stimulation may improve the health of the whole organism. The combination of rhythmic strokes can remove energy blockages in the meridians, align energy flow, induce a feeling of relief and tranquility.
