Indian head massage originated as part of the ancient Indian practice of medicine, called Ayurveda, based on balancing the body, mind and spirit to promote a long life. Ancient Indians believed that massage of all types, used with herbs, spices and oils, promoted strong muscles and skin, good health and encouraged the body’s natural healing powers.
The tradition of Indian head massages was confined to India until native Indian Narendra Mehta travelled to England in 1973 to study physical therapy. He began offering the head massage in England and it quickly spread to other Western countries as more people learnt the technique.
Particularly good for stress and tension, headaches, eye strain, alopecia, sinus problems and muscular problems in the upper back and neck.
