Indian Head Massage a Luxury at Benmiller Inn Spa

14 Aug

Today I had the pleasure of going to the Benmiller Inn to visit the Spa.  I have never visited the Benmiller Inn and was pleasantly surprised by the beautiful landscape and decor.  The Maitland River flows through the property as Sharp’s Creek and goes through the old mill as it used to be a pioneer settlement.  The grounds are well kept and the interior has a wonderful rustic feel to it.

I was met at the Spa by Ward who was exceptionally friendly and full of information.  He was telling me that the Indian Head Massage I was to receive initially started out a long time in India as a treatment for hair with oils. But as these treatments went on they were starting to notice many more health and wellness benefits as well.  Today the massage is done without oil, and usually seated in a massage chair.

The RMT in me was very curious about this type of massage since I had never experienced one or knew much about it.  I found myself paying close attention as the massage started and thinking about how it works and why.  As much as I tried to pay attention about half way through my massage I found myself getting quite relaxed and unable to focus and just went with the flow. As Wade had explained it is common to get a bit lightheaded after this type of massage because a lot of blood flow has been brought to the area. He gave me a bit of time to get up on my own and met me out at the desk.  Now in all honestly, I do recommend waiting a while until you drive home or bringing a designated massage driver because when I left I felt very serene and relaxed, and almost ready for a nap. I can still feel the effects of my massage as I sit here typing this in the few hours after, my muscles feel looser and I have an overall sense of tranquility.  This was a wonderful way to start my summer holidays!
