Indian Head Massage






Indian Head Massage

Indian Head Massage has been practised in India for thousands of years to help de-stress the entire body and is an important feature of Indian family life.

The treatment has since been westernised to include massage to the neck, upper arms and shoulders as part of a stress management treatment.

Massage oil is used on the upper back, upper arms, neck and shoulders and essential oils are used on the head.
