Indian head massage 1-day workshop
Head massage has been practised in India for thousands of years & has its roots in the traditional Ayurvedic system of medicine. Indian Head Massage is a specific therapy for the face, head, neck, shoulders & upper back. The treatment takes place seated & can be given with or without oils & through clothing if preferred. It has many benefits, including:
• Relief of muscular tension

• Mobilisation of the tissues of the neck & shoulders
• Release of anxiety
• Promotion of hair growth
• Toning of facial tissues, enhancing the complexion
• Help with eye strain, sinus congestion & tension of the jaw
The treatment itself is very invigorating, while also being deeply soothing. The result is a profound sense of calm & peace.
