What is Indian Head Massage?
Originally part of the ancient healing tradition of Ayurveda, Indian Head Massage has been practised for thousands of years in India. The word 'Ayurveda' comes from Sanskrit and means 'the science of life and longevity',it's approach being based upon the balance of body, mind and spirit.
The massage we use today combines some of the gentle grooming techniques used by indian women, with a more vigorous scalp massage which originates from the barbers in india. A western slant to the treatment has added in the upper back and shoulders, which means that this treatment now covers key areas where tension is held, making it a powerful therapy for de-stressing.
The session lasts one hour. About 45 minutes is hands on treatment, the rest of the time is consultation, changing, and resting after the treatment.
