How does it Work?
The aim of Indian head massage is to release the stress that has accumulated in the tissues, muscles and joints of the head, face, neck and shoulders.
This is achieved by using various types of massage movements in the shoulders, neck and head.
This area of the body harbours over 85% of all our daily tension. Did you know our head weighs an astonishing 5kgs.
