In India, head massage is given from the time of birth. Babies are regularly massaged with oil.
Even when they cry, mothers know the best way to comfort a baby is to touch and stroke it. Massage will enhance circulation in the infant.
The head is the centre of the nervous system.
The brain is the first organ to form in the process of foetal development. It is larger and heavier than any other organ. ( It can take up to six months for a baby to hold , or even balance, its head on its neck. )
The infant’s soft spot or fontanelle, is a membrane covered opening between the incomplete angles of the two parietal bones of the skull. Located at the top of the cranium, over the midbrain, the fontanelle can be seen pulsating in the new born infant. By six – nine months, the opening closes and this part of the skull becomes stiff and hard like other bones. Head massage, performed with nourishing oils, during the first few months of life is excellent for the infants brain and eyesight. When this opening closes, oils can no longer reach the brain so effectively. To ensure optimal functioning of the baby’s brain, an Indian mother will keep a piece of cotton wool soaked in oil, on this soft area whenever possible.
Eighty percent of the population in India live in villages where this tradition is still alive. In rural areas, weekly massage is a family scene. With the hectic pace of life in large towns and cities, it is becoming increasingly difficult to maintain this traditions.
However, even in big cities like Delhi, Bombay, Calcutta, a massage man can be seen in public places with his mat and rack of oils, practicing his trade for a few rupees. The ancient science of Indian massage was described as Valmiki, the first poet of the Sanskrit language, in his epic poem the Ramayana.
In Indian Temples, sculptures, calendars and illustrated spiritual books, often depicted Vishnu, the lord of preservation, receiving a head massage from his consort, Lakshmi.
Massage is essential for all people in all stages of life – infants, housewives, the elderly, those with special needs, the infirm and bodybuilders. For people unable to exercise, massage is an excellent alternative to enhance the growth and development of the body.
