Indian head massage is based on an ancient healing system called Ayurveda. The massage is invigorating, revitalizing and an uplifting treatment working on the upper back, shoulders, scalp and face. These areas are massaged in a firm and gentle rhythmic fashion including Marma points (acupressure points). Traditionally Ayurvedic oils are massaged into the scalp for their many therapeutic properties. Oils are optional. This particular form of massage can be used to relieve eyestrain, insomnia, migraines, stiff necks, stiff shoulders and headaches. It also relaxes and tones the facial muscles, stimulates and nourishes the hair and scalp.
