Benefits of Indian Head Massage

By working on the upper back, neck, shoulders and head, the areas which are most vulnerable to stress and tension, it becomes in effect a de-stressing programme for the whole body and thus eliminates toxins from tense knotted muscles, relieves stiffness and improves lymph and blood circulation. Indian head massage also works on areas affected by mental and emotional stress and can bring immediate relief. It also improves circulation in the head, enhances your senses, improves memory and promotes clear thinking.


This type of massage induces a sense of calmness, tranquillity and releases anxieties. It helps to improve concentration and alertness, relieves mental and physical tiredness, edginess and depression.
