INDIAN HEAD MASSAGE is an Indian tradition dating back 4000 years. It originated by families sitting behind one another and massaging each other with oils to promote health hair growth, shine and heal scalp conditions with herbs, spices and oils. They would use oils according to the season. Oils with different healing properties were used, depending on the person’s condition. When Indian Head massage was introduced to the west neck, shoulders and arms were added to the routine and oils are often not used.

These techniques reduce muscular and nervous tension and improves circulation of blood and lymphatic fluids. This oxygenates the cells, flushing out physical and emotional toxins. It stretches and mobilizes the tissues of the neck and shoulders, stimulates & improves scalp circulation encouraging the flow of nutrients to the hair follicles thus enhancing the nourishment of the hair and revitalizing hair growth.
