In brief: NO

The only treatment choices are anticoagulation or thrombolysis of the clot.
Dvts are life threatening and must be taken very serious.

In brief: It feels good

Indian head massage feels good and might help reduce muscle tension in your head, neck and shoulders, but it isn't at all likely to do a thing for you in terms of helping with a deep vein thrombosis.
