What is Indian head massage?
Indian head massage was initially developed by Indian women as part of their hair care and grooming routine, and is now practiced widely across India by everybody, both in the home and commercially.
In Western society Indian head massage is mainly used for the reduction of stress symptoms. Here the treatment has also been further developed to include massage of the neck, shoulders, upper back and upper arms.
Indian head massage promotes deep relaxation, the head and back are two of the most sensitive areas on the body and respond really well to being massaged. Along with this come the physical benefits of increased blood and lymph circulation and reduced tension in the muscles.
