INDIAN HEAD MASSAGE

Indian head massage has been part of Indian family life for over a thousand years. Women would practice it on each other as part of their grooming routine. Men would receive it from their barber when going for a hair cut. They used enriching oils, such as coconut or sesame oil, which help to keep their hair nourished and healthy.

The modern day Indian head massage also includes massaging the shoulders, neck and face, as these are areas that tend to hold stress and tension.

In a seated position, the upper back, shoulders, neck and head are massaged thoroughly and firmly to help relieve tension in these areas. Although quite stimulating, it helps to relieve stress, calm the mind and promote deep relaxation. 

Indian head massage is a wonderful treatment for both physical and emotional ailments. Give it a go, you will not be disappointed!
