WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF INDIAN HEAD MASSAGE?

The beauty of Indian head massage is that it works in the areas affected by both mental and emotional stress, and can bring instant relief. Our head, neck and shoulders hold a lot of tension which causes the muscles under our skin to tighten which can often result in tension headaches or anxiety . Indian Head Massage relaxes these muscles which increases blood flow to the area  alleviating anxiety and relaxing the whole body.
