Indian Head Massage has its roots in the ancient system of medicine known as Ayurveda, which was developed in the Himalayan region by Rishis (holy wise men). For over 5,000 years, most of the Indian population has appreciated the benefits of Indian Head Massage. Ayurveda, involves natural therapies, taking account of the mind, body and spirit. Indian Head Massage, as taught and practiced in the West, is a mixture of traditional Indian and Western massage techniques. The movements include Swedish massage techniques, champissage (hacking) and Tabla (percussion).

The Treatment

You will be invited to take a seat and relax on a specially designed massage chair. Your upper back, shoulders, neck, scalp and face will be treated. Oils applied to the hair are optional. If you would like them to be applied to your hair, upper clothing can be removed and a large towel will be wrapped around you to ensure your modesty. If the treatment is performed without oils you can remain fully clothed and a lightweight t-shirt is recommended.
