What is Indian Head Massage?

Indian Head Massage has been practiced for thousands of years and is based on the ancient system of medicine known as Ayurveda. Ayurvedic texts for health and wellbeing date back nearly 4000 years.

The techniques used have developed from traditional rituals which involved the application of oils such as coconut, sesame, olive, almond and mustard. These were massaged into the scalp to keep the hair and scalp in excellent condition.

Indian Head Massage has only recently become popular in the West and the area treated has now extended to include the shoulders, upper arms and neck and face. By including these areas, the treatment becomes effective for stress management and tired and aching muscles as well as for the simply stimulating the head and improving the hair growth and condition.

Indian Head Massage can be given with oils with shoulders and upper back visible or through clothing without the oils. It is entirely the choice of the individual which type of treatment they prefer.
