A Thai head massage is a massage of the head, neck, and upper body. It will help to release all the tension and toxins that have accumulated in the muscles, tissues, joints of the head, shoulders, neck and face. The therapist uses a variety of different movements including deep kneading and compression techniques on the head, neck and shoulder blade areas. It also involves a massage work on the energy lines and the stimulation of the pressure points around the head. The massage is completed with a relaxing shoulder, neck and upper back massage to eliminate any remaining stress or tension and release toxins.

Thai head massage is a perfect anti-stress treatment for anyone suffering from tension headaches, shoulder pain, eyestrain, stiff neck, insomnia, lack of concentration or difficulty sleeping. It is a completely safe and simple yet effective form of massage therapy renowned for its stress relieving qualities. Treatment can be given fully clothed and without a treatment table as well. It is both versatile and non-invasive, making it perfect for the whole family, even pregnant mothers and the elderly.

Along with the traditional Thai massage techniques used, Thai head massage borrows many techniques from ancient Indian head massage. In addition to our physical anatomy, there is another “subtle” anatomy that is not normally seen, the Chakra. The energy vortex or “Chakra” as it is also known corresponds to the different glands that are related to specific parts of the physical body and also to areas of spiritual and psychological development. Stimulating these energy centers and pathways to work at peak efficiency provides a highly effective way of preventing ill-health and promoting a greater sense of well-being. The balance of this “Chakra” is essential to maintain our health and vitality.

Another benefit of Thai head massage is that you can perform it on your own head anywhere, anytime. You can try it at home or at your place of work or study to quickly reduce and eliminate any tension, stress or headaches you may have, caused by any anxiety or worry you may be experiencing. You can try this with just a few simple techniques, such as squeezing and releasing the trapezius shoulder muscles on either side of the neck. Apply palm pressure to the neck muscles in a gentle squeezing motion to release any muscle tension and increase blood circulation to the head. Rotate your middle fingers in small circles along the top of your eyebrows from the center of your forehead to the outside of your eyes. Repeat on the sphenoid bone near the frontozygomatic suture. Finally, squeeze the ear between your thumb and forefinger and apply a little pressure. Slowly drag the earlobe down and release to stimulate all the energy points and using moderate pressure move down the length of the neck to its base at the shoulders. This will stimulate the release of endorphins and begin to quickly relieve any stress or tension symptoms you may have.
