Top 5 reasons to get an Indie Head Massage Today
Wouldn’t you love to relieve stress while having your face, neck, shoulders and scalp massaged? At our Oakville Massage Therapy clinic, our registered massage therapist Calais Irwin is highly trained in a specific treatment known as an Indian or Indie Head Massage. Here are our top 5 reasons why you’ll love our Indie Head Massage Treatment here with our Oakville Registered Massage Therapist:
Tantalizing Scalp Massage
It’s similar to everyone’s favourite part of getting a hair cut, the scalp massage during shampooing, except this treatment is done while lying on a massage table. Instead of shampoo, the massage therapist uses warm coconut oil. This oil is applied to the hair shaft as well as massaged into the scalp so that all the small muscles of the scalp will be treated as well. The oil can be left in the hair for several hours, even over night for extra moisturization.
Promote Hair Growth & Reduces Dandruff
The scalp treatment can increase hair growth and moisturize the hair shaft. Coconut oil contains nutrients and medium chain fatty acids which help not only nourish the scalp but also help remove build up of sebum which can block hair follicles and prevent hair growth. This is a great treatment for people with a dry, itchy scalp or dandruff. Dandruff can be caused by bacteria or fungal infections and coconut oil has antimicrobial and antifungal properties, plus the warm oil helps to sooth and moisturize the scalp. Studies have also shown coconut oil actually helps reduce protein loss in the hair shaft which helps prevent dry damaged hair and breakage.
A full treatment is 60 minutes and involves massaging the face, neck, shoulders and scalp. You can choose to focus on only scalp and hair or just the face, neck & shoulders so it can be done in a 30 minute appointment. That’s about 1800 seconds of massage bliss!
Total Relaxation & Improved Sleep
Believe it or not but the face massage is one of the most relaxing parts of an Indie Head Massage. Most people drift in and out of sleep during the treatment. As an added bonus this can be done in combination with a regular massage for up to 90 minutes of treatment. And the relaxation doesn’t just stop when the treatment is over. Sandalwood oil is used during the face massage treatment. Sandalwood is very calming and clarifying for the mind. Patients report better sleep quality after an Indie Head Massage treatment.
