Indian Head Massage is an ancient, dynamic, fast paced energy massage that is quickly gaining popularity in North America. Making use of pressure points and massage strokes, it works through the body’s energy systems as well as on the physical structure, focusing on the head, upper back, shoulders, upper arms, neck, face and scalp—while your client remains seated in an upright position. Benefits include: improved circulation and lymphatic flow, thus clearing toxins from muscles; the restoration of muscular flexibility, the relief of neck and head tension, headaches, and eye strain; and finally, as it stimulates hair follicles, improvement of hair and scalp conditions.
