Indie Head and Face Massage-Sold Out! (Please contact us about our waiting list)
Indie massage techniques originated in India thousands of years ago. The head, neck and face are very important to the body/mind because they are the seat of the nervous system. Warm therapeutic oils are applied to the scalp in addition to Swedish massage techniques and specific pressure points on the face and head using essential oils. These subtle pressure points are door receptors under the surface of the skin where muscle, ligaments, and joints meet together. When lightly touched, they stimulate respective organs, calming the nervous system and pacifying the mind. This massage is very beneficial for conditions such as: facial pain, anxiety, insomnia, depression, sinus and tension headaches, and migraines. It also improves blood circulation to the brain, lubricates and conditions the scalp, improves lymphatic drainage and revitalizes the spirit, leaving one with a feeling of deep peace and calm within.
