Indian Head Massage

This form of massage goes back over 4,000 years passed down from generation to generation as a natural part of family life and every day grooming rituals. Originally this technique was used by Indian women to condition their scalp and hair and then it was adopted by barbers who added to the techniques to include more massage-based techniques, moving down to include the neck and shoulders.

The additional benefits of extending the treatment were recognised by a physiotherapist, Narendra Mehta, some years ago who crafted the technique even further to become the rounded treatment we know today.
