Indian Head Massage

An Ayurvedic treatment

Indian head massage is so much more than a back massage or head massage! This is an Ayurvedic treatment which dates back over a thousand years. Massage has a long-standing history in Indian cultures with traditions and techniques being passed down through family members. It is very common for them to give and receive daily head massages.

Traditionally done in a seated position, we modify your treatment at Nautilus so that you are laying down comfortably as you would for a back massage. Indian head massage techniques are then used. Your back will be warmed up with rhythmic sweeping strokes. Then, with deeper pressure, but always to your comfort level, your therapist will stretch out the muscles on either side of your spine, up and across your shoulders, down into your arms, and along your neck. This will help to loosen any areas of tightness and tension, reducing aches and pains.

Your massage will continue from your neck up into your scalp. Eventually, you will be asked to turn over so that your scalp massage can continue to the front of your head before moving down to your face. Scalp and facial massage can be incredibly relaxing and calming, slowing down minds full of whirling thoughts. Tightness and tension along the forehead, cheeks and jaw can be eased which can help with teeth grinding or clenching and headaches.
