This technique is also known as ‘on the spot’ or ‘seated massage’ because the person is sat in an ordinary chair. Indian Head Massage is carried out over clothing without the use of oil.
It is an excellent introduction to massage for those who have never experienced it before.
The treatment concentrates on the upper back, neck, shoulders and head.It is especially beneficial to anyone who sits for prolonged periods, i.e. computer users who often experience pain and tension in the neck and shoulders and may be prone to eye strain, headaches and lapses in concentration. We demonstrated this therapy on central televisions ‘lifeline’ programme.
