Indian Head Massage Training

Indian Head Massage is a deeply relaxing treatment for tired, achy muscles.  It calms the mind and brings the body into harmony. The ultimate goal is to release tension in the scalp, neck and shoulders, along with providing relaxation and rejuvenation while sitting in a chair. Marma points (similar to acupressure points) are stimulated and build-up of tension is relieved.
