Indian Head Massage
The traditional art of Indian Head Massage is based on Ayurveda (Sanskrit word) meaning “the science of life and longevity”. Ayurveda is the world’s oldest recorded healing system and its approach to health is a balance of mind, body and spirit, and the promotion of long life. Traditional Indian head Massage was used on the head only. In the West we have adapted the massage to include the shoulders, upper arms, neck and face, these are the main areas vulnerable to stress.
