Introduction to Indian Head Massage
One day workshop – $200.00
Massage techniques have been practiced by people in India for over a thousand years. Massage plays a vital role in family life. Many Indian infants still receive a daily massage from birth to keep them in good health. From three to six years old, they are massaged a couple of times a week and after six they are taught to share a massage with family members on a regular basis.
Indian head massage is a stimulating massage of the upper back, shoulders, neck, and head, where tension is normally held. It is a simple and safe therapy that promotes relaxation while alleviating aches and pains. Indian head massage works with a firm yet gentle rhythm to help loosen muscles as well as ease tension and relieve the uncomfortable accumulation of toxins in the body. It is a non-invasive therapy that is performed with the client sitting in a chair, fully clothed.
