Head massage has always played a pivotal role in Indian life and dates back over four thousand years. It is deep rooted in Ayurvedic writings. It involves the placing on of hands to create subtle chakra-balancing change within the body.
The head face and body are massaged and pressure points are worked to release tension and blocked energies. You remain fully clothed, oil can be used to intensify the treatment but it is optional. This form of massage releases our ‘feel good’ hormones called endorphins to create a feeling of overall wellness.
Indian head massage may be very beneficial in the treatment of;

It also improves circulation to the hair shaft and can improve the condition and texture of the hair.
But ultimately it is a wonderful, relaxing and deeply soothing massage of the head that takes approximately 50 minutes.
