Indian head massage is great for relieving the stress and tension in our everyday lives. The technique uses controlled movements and has a strong effect on the three higher chakras – the mind, body and spirit. The chakra is the energy vortex that we need to remain striving and because the massage works on the neck and shoulders, tension is relieved almost instantly.
Regular sessions of Indian head massage will result in a number of health benefits for the client, and a course of treatments may be advised if a complex condition is involved.
