What is it?

Indian Head Massage is part of the Ayurvedic Bodywork anti-ageing system from India.

It is a relaxing treatment applied to the head, neck, shoulders and arms. It reduces muscle tension, stimulates circulation and helps alleviate headaches and eye strain.

It is the ideal stress-busting treatment for anyone who is suffering from aching shoulders, a tight neck, tension headache, eye strain, insomnia, or poor concentration. It is a safe, simple yet effective therapy renowned for relieving symptoms of stress. The beauty of the treatment is that it can be given fully clothed, and there is no need for a treatment table either.
