What is Indian Head Massage?

Indian Head Massage as the name suggests orginated in India.

During Indian head massage the head, neck and shoulder areas are gently, firmly and rhythmically massaged until the pressure and tension begins to flow away.

Indian Head Massage helps to:-

  • Relaxes the muscle and nerve fibres of the head neck and shoulders which improves muscle tone and flexibility
  • Improves circulation to the skin and hair which encourages cell regeneration
  • Increase the circulation to the scalp to promote healthy hair growth
  • Increase the supply of oxygen to the brain to help relieve mental fatigue
  • Relaxes and soothes tense eye muscles to relieve tired eyes and eyestrain
