Indian head massage is a very specific massage. The techniques used are different to those adopted in the Swedish body massages. They are designed to relax and soothe rather than warm and stimulate.
Indian head massage is based upon the Ayurvedic system of healing which has been used in Indian for thousands of years. It aims to release stress from the muscles and joints of the shoulders, neck, scalp, and face.
The treatment is usually given with the client seated in a chair but if deeper relaxation is desired then the client can lie down on a couch for the session.
In Indian head massage it is not necessary for the client to get undressed although it is a good idea to wear lose clothing to allow the therapist access to the muscles of the shoulders and neck.
