Indian Head Massages
What is an Indian head massage?
Indian head massages originate from India, where it is commonly practised for over 1000 years. It is the massage of the upper back, upper arms, neck, scalp and face.

It also stimulates scalp blood circulation, which encourages the flow of nutrients to the hair follicles thus enhancing the nourishment, strength and texture of the hair and revitalizing hair growth.
The massage to the face has a very soothing effect and increases the circulation of blood and lymphatic fluids and lymphatic drainage. This oxygenates the cells, flushing out physical and emotional toxins.
