Indian head massage originated in India over 1000 years ago and began as a way of keeping the hair in good condition. This form of massage works on the upper back, shoulders, upper arms, neck, scalp, ears and face. The areas are massaged using firm yet gentle, rhythmic movements that involve acupressure points called Marma points. Special oils were traditionally used in this form of massage however the use of oils is now optional.
Indian head massage can be used to relieve eyestrain, insomnia, sinusitis, stress and anxiety, ease headaches and migraines, relax muscles, tone facial muscles, stimulate the hair and scalp, help with localized blood and lymphatic circulation, boost the immune system.
