INDIAN HEAD MASSAGE is a 4000 year old therapy that treats the person on 3 levels; the physical, mental, and subtle. The modality is a combination of the traditional Indian head massage moves originating from India along with non-traditional moves given to the face, neck, upper arms, and shoulders. An Ayurvedic element of work is done on the three higher Chakras (Visuddha- Throat, Ajna-Third Eye, and Sahasrara-Crown), which will assist the body’s energies to re-balance. The delivery of a hair and scalp conditioning oil at the end of the treatment is completely optional.

This unique and ancient massage is done while a client sits fully clothed in a comfortable low back chair. It is the most versatile of all massages out there. Simply said, this massage can be done anywhere you can set up a chair for your client to sit on and receive this treatment.
