In the 10 years that I’ve been an Indian Head Massage therapist, I developed a a theory that a gentle massage is vitally important as it activates the body’s parasympathetic nervous system. This aspect of our nervous system deals with regeneration, recharging, healing and growth. It’s the aspect that improves digestion and helps release tension from the body. If there was a knot in a piece of rope, we wouldn’t try and take it out deeply or roughly. A knot is gently teased out of a piece of rope. I believe that we need to treat our bodies just as gently and tease out the knots and tension so the parasympathetic nervous system can be activated. When we’re busy and going about our day and dealing with trauma, it’s the sympathetic nervous system that’s activated. It is so important to take breaks from this by effectively activating the parasympathetic nervous system.
Indian Head Massage includes massage of the upper back, upper arms, neck and head and so the name Indian Head Massage isn’t very apt. It’s a massage that focuses on areas that really gather stress. People are often surprised how relaxing the upper arm massage can be. Clients are always surprised at how gentle the massage is. This is because I am focused on relaxing the nervous system so the body is in a relaxed state to renew itself.
