Indian Head Massage

Indian Head Massage has been practised in India for over a thousand years. It was originally used as a technique to keep long thick hair healthy and in a beautiful condition. The treatment involves relaxing movements of the upper back, upper arms, shoulders, neck, head and face; helping to relieve the stress and tension of everyday life.

The scalp is massaged with various nourishing oils, (eg coconut or almond) which is believed to improve the texture of the hair and scalp.  Due to the increase in circulation from the massage movements, the base of the hair follicles are nourished.

The skin on the shoulders, neck and arems can be massaged with various medius depending on your skin type and preference, (eg oil, cream, talc).  Another alternative would be to utilise the skin's natural ability to produce its own natural secretions which are producesd as the skin is timulated (i.e. sebum).  Pre-blended aromatherapy oil is also used to have an uplifting or relaxing effect.
