Indian head massage is based on traditional Ayurvedic techniques and has been in practise for more than four thousand years. Thanks to its wonderfully calming effects it has gradually become popular throughout many other parts of the world.
Many people experience pain and tension in the upper back, shoulders, neck and scalp. Indian head massage involves various massage techniques being applied to these areas and can be very effective in helping to ease any tension. It is also a fantastic treatment for helping to promote relaxation and alleviating symptoms of stress.
Traditionally this is a seated massage but the routine can be performed with the recipient lying on a massage couch too. A facial massage can also be incorporated. Massage oil or even an aromatherapy blend can be used but it is also quite possible to receive the treatment without any oil if preferred.
