What is Ayurvedic head massage?

Ayurvedic head massage is both a therapeutic and a beauty treatment. This ancient practice has been used for over a thousand years in India to restore and maintain health and beauty.

It involves using a specific sequence of movements including energy balancing techniques, lymphatic drainage, acupressure/marma points, stretching and general massage to the shoulders, neck, face and scalp. Using a specially formulated herbal oil blend, the massage enhances relaxation, stimulates the circulatory and lymphatic systems, and helps improve skin and hair condition.

Ayurvedic head massage can be given or received almost anywhere as it does not require any special equipment. The receiver remains fully clothed, seated in a chair or can sit cross legged on the ground.
