Why Indian Head Massage?
The head has many marmas, or vital energy centres, and is a reflection of the entire body, thus relieving tension and rebalancing from head to toe. Ayurvedic Indian Head Massage (or Shirobhyanga) promotes rejuvenation to the whole being. The practice helps relieve insomnia, headaches and stress related disorders while boosting the immune system. This massage blissfully relaxes and balances mind body and spirit.
