Indian head massage is a new treatment on The Bothy menu, the aim of Indian head massage is to release tension in the muscles and joints of the head, face, neck, and shoulders. Indian head massage can also help with relieving fatigue, insomnia, headaches, and sinusitis. The experience is deeply calming and relaxing, leaving a feeling of increased energy, concentration, and revitalisation.
We sat down with Evie, our Indian head massage specialist to find more about the treatment.
What is Indian Head Massage?
Indian Head Massage is a treatment that focuses on massaging acupressure points along the head, neck, and shoulders, often using circular massage strokes to improve hair follicles, scalp condition and great for tension relief.
The combination of brisk friction movements to stimulate and refresh and slower, circular movements to soothe and relieve neck and scalp tension, make Indian Head Massage an effective treatment for headache sufferers.
By focusing massage to the upper back, shoulders, neck, scalp, and face, it releases tension and stress and so relieves headaches, eye strain and sinusitis, helping you to feel calm and more able to manage the stresses and strains and mental tiredness of daily life.
