Indian Head Massage is the ancient Ayurvedic form of head, neck and shoulders massage which has a profound effect on the whole body. It is also used to stimulate or sedate the nervous system and is excellent for relieving migraines.

If your clients tend to carry their tension in the upper back, neck and head, then this treatment will really help to free that tension, clear the head, focus the mind and allow the body to come back into a lovely state of homeostasis.  This may be the therapy that you have been waiting to add to your Treatment Menu.
