Indian Head Massage

Indian Head Massage is an ancient form of massage working mainly on the head, neck, face, back and shoulders.  

 

It was brought from India to the U.K. by Nehandra Mettha in the 1970s.

 

The movements vary from gentle to vigorous which can noticeably increase circulation and decrease mental and physical tension.
