What Is Indian Head Massage?

Here at The Comfoot Zone, we now offer a new treatment- Indian Head Massage. Maybe you’ve heard of it- maybe you haven’t- but what are the benefits?


One huge benefit of Indian Head Massage is that it helps relieve back/neck pain, as well as migraines and headaches. These things can often be caused by a buildup of tension in the upper back and neck, especially if you work on a computer for long amounts of time.


This massage focuses on applying pressure to these areas, releasing muscle tension and knots. This will also stimulate the circulation of cerebral fluid, reducing any blockages that could cause headaches.


Another really good thing about this massage is that it promotes hair growth. Massaging the scalp increases the flow of oxygen and stimulates the hair follicles, encouraging the hair to grow.


Hair loss can sometimes be stress related too, so the fact that this massage is so incredibly relaxing is another way it can help towards having a healthy and full head of hair!


Thirdly, Indian Head Massage boosts circulation, stimulating lymphatic drainage to remove toxins and distribute nutrients to the cells.

It can also help with improving insomnia or broken sleep patterns- as these are often other unpleasant side-effects of stress. By completely relaxing the body this treatment can help alleviate anxiety, along with instilling a sense of wellbeing, thus encouraging better rest.


Even if you’re suffering from depression, an Indian Head Massage may be able to help you with your symptoms. Because it improves the flow of oxygen to the brain, it can have a similar effect to exercise- increasing levels of mood-lifting neurotransmitters such as serotonin and dopamine.


Low levels of these chemicals are widely believed to be linked to depression, and boosting them promotes feelings of calmness and positivity.


As you can see, Indian Head Massage is very beneficial for many different problems and pains. Debbie has been qualified in this therapy for over fifteen years, and we highly recommend that you treat yourself to one of these very popular treatments!
