Trained masseuse giving indian head massage

Indian head Massage is a series of massage techniques found in many ancient cultures around the world. In India, the massage has been used often daily as part of the grooming process for thousands of years. The health benefits include a deep and calming effect on the head that allows the person to completely relax.
The massage involves firm and gentle stokes on the neck, head and face which not only releases tension in these muscles but also improves circulation, enhances the senses and often helps clear the mind.
