VALENTINE’S IDEA: Increase intimacy with a couple’s Indian Head Massage

Published: February 11, 2013


Are you bored to tears with the usual heart-shaped box of chocolates and flowers for Valentine’s Day? Well, heads up! This year on the international day of love consider something a little different, a little healthier, and a lot more sexy!

The Indian Head Massage is like foreplay in that it relaxes the mind and body while at the same time it excites and engages sensuality, encouraging a playful connection between couples.

Touch is an important part of intimacy and opens you up to a different connection with your partner. As all the energy points on the head are stimulated, rubbed, tapped, stroked, massaged and caressed your body feels relaxed and stress-free. It is like breaking down a wall and releasing resistance to true intimacy. This invites a sense of well-being and self care which in turn is sexy and boosts immunity and virility.

The head is one of the most sensitive and “under-loved” parts of the body where we always want more but most massage treatments usually stop short.  Some of the amazing benefits of the Indian Head Massage include release of head, neck, shoulder and back tension, as well as relief from emotional stress, depression, headaches and insomnia.

As founder of “Thousand Petal Lotus Indian Head Massage” I have blissed out many heads with an exotic, relaxing and rejuvenating head rubbing, a healing practice stemming from Ayurvedic roots. I have heard from many of my clients, both male and female, that the feeling after this sensual massage is so amazing that it’s almost … “orgasmic.” This word has been used to describe the feeling of relaxation, stimulation and connection to their sensuality after experiencing the one-hour massage treatment, which incorporates warmed oils on the scalp. The word Sneha in Sanskrit means oil and is also the word for love. This really refers to the feeling of bliss that the body and mind experience after receiving head massage with the oils.

On Valentine’s Eve (6-9 p.m. on Feb. 14), Thousand Petal Lotus Indian Head Massage will be offering a three-hour “Love and a Head Rub Couples Indian Head Massage Workshop”  at Onyx Studio in Vancouver. Couples will learn and practise on their partner several massage techniques using a specially formulated love oil. The workshop also includes a bottle of the love oil to take home as a special gift.  Champagne and chocolate will also be enjoyed for an evening of awakening all the senses.

To register and for more information go to Thousand Petal Lotus or call 604-876-3994.
