Indian Head Massage

What is it?

Massage is the oldest form of medicine known to humans and has been practiced for thousands of years.

An Indian Head Massage is a form of relaxation massage that focuses on the face, head, neck, shoulders, upper back and upper arms which are important energy centers within the body. This form of massage is very relaxing and has a balancing effect. It helps to release stress and tension, creating a sense of peace and well-being.

Our clients felt so relaxed, that a 30 minute session sitting in a chair was not as nice as laying down, so we incorporated the Indian Head Massage into a one-hour full body massage.
