This massage works on significant areas of the body, especially the neck and the shoulders where stress affects major muscle groups, and it often brings immediate relief. Tensions are eased and fibrous knots and modules melt away. The efficiency of the circulatory and lymphatic systems improves, toxins are dispersed from tense muscles and flexibility and fluidity of movement is restored.
It originates from an Indian holistic medicine system called Ayurveda, (which means the "science of life"), in which it is believed that the mind and body are intimately connected and can therefore influence each other. According to Ayurveda, it is understood that Indian head massage can not only reduce headaches and improve physical wellbeing, but can also improve mental and emotional wellness.
