Indian Scalp Massage is a form of massage that focuses on the face, head, neck, ears, shoulders, upper back and upper arms which are important energy centers within the body. Sitting in a massage chair is required for part of the treatment. Indian head massage involves using a variety of massage techniques including deep kneading, friction, tapping and hacking and compression movements over the neck, shoulder, scalp, slight hair pulling, ears and facial areas that tap into your “chakras” or paths of energy and encourage healing and balance in your whole body. It has a balancing effect on the recipient as it helps them to release stress and tension creating a sense of peace and well being.
Hot stone massage is a specialty massage where the therapist uses smooth, heated stones as an extension of their own hands, or by placing them on the body. The heat can be both deeply relaxing and help warm up tight muscles so the therapist can work more deeply, more quickly.
