What is Indian head massage?
Indian head massage is an ancient therapeutic treatment that has been practised in India for thousands of years, and is incredibly relaxing. Part of the Hindu health care practice of Ayurveda, Indian head massage focuses on your head, neck and shoulders.

What is Indian head massage good for?
Indian head massage focuses on the three higher “chakras” – mind, body and spirit, and as such hits your energy epicentre. It doesn’t seem sufficient to say that a good, long Indian head massage (involving proper neck and shoulder and back massage as well) will relax you. It’s more than this. Indian head massage should actually make you feel detached and serene, and leave you sighing and wordless.Even if you don’t experience this level of relaxation, this massage treatment offers all kinds of other benefits. It will relieve aches, pains and tension in your neck, back and shoulders, improve the texture of your hair and encourage it to grow. An Indian head massage stimulates the flow of blood, lymph and oxygen in your upper body which will clear your sinuses, relieve stress and help you sleep better. And because it can help cure headaches (even migraine!), eye strain and anxiety, an Indian head massage can even help you to concentrate better at work.
