The traditional art of Indian Head Massage is based on the ancient system of medicine known as Ayurveda, which has been practised in India for thousands of years.

The Ayurvedic approach to health is the balance of body, mind and spirit and the promotion of long life. Ayurveda recommends the use of massage together with diet, herbs, cleansing, yoga, meditation and exercise. The ancient texts say that the human life span should be around 100 years and that all those years should be lived in total health, physically and emotionally. The whole aim of Ayurveda is in prevention and with promoting positive health, beauty and long life.

The treatments involve massage and acupressure techniques on upper back, shoulders, arms, hands and neck. This relaxes tense areas and also helps to re-balance the energy, clearing any areas of negativity.
