What is Indian Head Massage?

Indian Head Massage as its name suggests is a massage originally from India which focuses attention on the head.

Traditionally in India women would use oils and massage as a way of keeping their hair strong and in good condition whereas men would have some form of head massage when they visited the barbers.

Indian Head Massage as we know it today was introduced to the UK by Narendra Mehta in the 1970s when he came over to England to study and realised that over here, massage was only offered on the body not the scalp.

Indian Head Massage is very versatile and can be done either seated on a chair or laying on a massage couch.

If you prefer it can be done with oils or if you have an important event afterwards or are taking public transport home you can have it without oils.

Where no oils are being used there is no need to remove any clothes as it can be done fully clothed. Although you may wish to pop your shoes off.
