INDIAN HEAD MASSAGE
Indian Head Massage is an extremely popular therapy that has evolved from traditional techniques. It originates from Kerala, Southern India and has been practised for over a thousand years. Stress affects major muscle groups. This massage works on specific areas of the body, i.e. the head, neck and the shoulders where stress and tension accumulate. It targets the areas of tension, and may often bring immediate relief. Tensions are eased and fibrous knots dissolve away. The circulatory and lymphatic systems will improve, toxins are dispersed from tense muscles, and flexibility and fluidity of movement is restored, along with the bodies natural equilibrium. This one day course is available to all, no experience is needed. You will be able to offer a relaxing and soothing Indian Head Massage as an individual treatment, or incorporate it into existing therapies. Indian Head Massage is always given with the recipient remaining clothed and comfortably seated on a chair. Traditional Indian Mustard Oil is used for the head and hair massage. No special equipment is necessary. The massage takes approximately 40 minutes
