Indian Head Massage is based on the ayurvedic system of healing which has been practiced in India for thousands of years and continues to play an important role in their everyday life today. It features in the earliest Ayurvedic texts, which date back nearly 4000 years. Indian Head Massage has an important medicinal function and does not only strengthen muscles and firm the skin, but also encourages the body’s innate healing Life Force.
Indian Head Massage is a wonderfully relaxing therapy and would make a great addition to a practitioner's therapy offerings. It is important that the therapist has other complementary therapies to offer their clients as it is recommended to vary treatments.
