An Indian Head Massage at Thai-vedic massage incorporates pressure to Thai acupressure points on the head and neck. It begins with the application of Neal's Yard Rosemary and Cedarwood Hair Treatment, followed by pressure to the chakra points on the forehead, crown and back of the head.
Neck and shoulders
Using heated organic coconut oil your therapist continues by working on the neck and shoulders with their palms, knuckles and forearms working out those knots, so common among London's office workers. After an application of exfoliating Calamus powder, the techniques are repeated to further loosen up the neck and shoulder muscles. Pressure is then applied to Thai pressure points in the neck and trapezius muscles with the therapists thumbs.
Head and scalp
After ten minutes working on the neck and shoulders the therapist applied more warmed coconut oil to the hair and scalp and then works it into the scalp with vigorous massage techniques. Using the fingers, palms and knuckles, sliding, tapping and chopping techniques are employed to stimulate the entire head and scalp. This helps to alleviate headaches. It also improves the circulation of the cerebral spinal fluid, increases circulation and promotes healthy hair growth.
Arms and hands
After ten minutes of at first invigorating, then calming and soothing head massage techniques the therapist then applies more heated coconut oil to the arms and hands, massaging the muscles of the arms and hands, stretching the joints in the fingers, wrists, elbow and shoulders. The massage is completed with the application of a hot towel to the neck and shoulders to further relax the muscles. The whole routine lasts 30 minutes
