What is Indian head massage?
Indian head massage is a relaxing holistic therapy that balances the mind, body & spirit and promotes health and well-being.
The traditional art of Indian head massage is based on the ancient system of medicine know as Ayurveda and has been used in Asia for over 5,000 years. Indian head massage uses acupressure massage specifically on the area surrounding the head, scalp, face, neck, shoulders and upper back. This treatment was originally used to improve scalp and hair condition. It is a deep massage, using a variety of pressure and techniques, including circular massage strokes on your scalp, deep tissue work on your shoulders, and stretching the neck.
