Indian Head Massage at About Balance Brighton
Indian head massage is a traditional Ayurvedic treatment incorporating massage of the head, neck, shoulders, upper arms and face. It is great at removing knots of tension in the upper back, shoulders and neck. The massage pressure can be soft or deep depending on your preference and needs. You can always talk to your therapists about what level of pressure you are after, and they will taylor it to your needs.
During an Indian head massage, stretches are used to improve flexibility and range of motion, and acupressure techniques help to improve the flow of Prana (your vital energy according to Ayurveda) through your Nadis (energy pathways). Healing energy is used to balance the crown (Sahasrara), third eye (Ajna) and throat (Vishudha) chakras, leaving you with a sense of deep peace and tranquility.
The massage is received seated in a comfortable chair. It can also be booked alongside other treatments such as reflexology or full back massage.
