The Indian head massage session at Araya Beauty lasts for about an hour. Avoid eating or taking fluids for at least half an hour before your session so that you don’t have to interrupt it to visit the washroom.
Before the treatment, one of our fully qualified massage experts here at Araya Beauty will talk to you about your general lifestyle and medical history. For some pre-exisitng medical conditions, it may become necessary to check with your doctor to confirm that the massage can be performed safely.
The Indian head massage treatment is performed with you in a fully clothed state; you don’t need to undress, but please wear a comfortable top or t-shirt made from thin material.
The Indian head massage in its original form was applied only to the head, but the therapy has since developed and it now involves the entire upper body. The treatment can be done with or without oils, but oils give additional benefits.
You will be asked to remove your shoes and sit on a comfortable chair. The therapist will use a variety of techniques while performing the massage. The massage session focuses on three elements.
- The neck and shoulder is massaged to relax the muscles. The therapist will use a combination of deep massage and pressure points, which enhances circulation and speeds up lymphatic drainage. This helps oxygenate the tissues and remove wastes.
- The therapist will now focus on your head and use a variety of techniques on the scalp. This relaxes the head area, boosts circulation and speeds up the supply of nutrients to the scalp and hair roots.
- The therapist will gently massage the muscles of your face and rub the pressure points. This will make you feel calm and relaxed.
At the end of the session, you will be asked to relax on a chair to let the massage take effect.
