Indian head massage is a technique which involves massaging the neck, shoulders, upper arms and scalp.
The skull is covered with a thin layer of muscle which tightens when someone is feeling tense and can be the cause of headaches and feelings of anxiety. An Indian head massage aims to relieve this tension to improve blood flow and promote relaxation throughout the body.
This treatment begins on the upper back and shoulders, it continues up the neck and over the scalp. The person can remain fully clothed for the massage and can remain in a seated position.
