Indian Head Massage
Indian head massage originated in India thousands of years ago and began as a way of keeping the mind and hair in good condition.
It is based on the ancient healing system of Ayurveda.
This form of massage works on the upper back, shoulders, upper arms, neck, scalp, ears and face. The areas are massaged using firm yet gentle, rhythmic movements that involve acupressure points called Marma points. Ayurvedic herbalized oils were traditionally used in this form of massage.
