Indian Head Massage is a great complimentary therapy for the mind, body and spirit.
I like to use natural oils when performing this therapy, so I use products from Neals Yard and Songbird natural wax.
What is Indian Head Massage?
The art of Indian Head Massage is an ancient form of healing and relaxation used widely in Asia, mainly by masseurs and hairdressers, to combat daily tension and stress. This form of massage is one of the most popular therapies available at the moment.
Indian Head Massage covers the upper back, neck, scalp and face using a variety of massage pressures and techniques. It is one of the most relaxing types of massages you will experience. A typical treatment normally lasts 30 to 45 minutes but this can be reduced to 15 to 20 minutes if required.
Indian head massage is said to balance every system in the body.
It works on the subtle energy or life force within our bodies and therefore balances our Chakras.
