Based on the ancient Indian healing system of Ayurveda, this technique has been practiced for over a thousand years. The massage is calming yet revitalizing, and focuses on the parts of the body most prone to tension and stress: the upper back, neck, shoulders, face and scalp. Pressure points are stimulated during the massage. Indian Head Massage encourages the deepest relaxation and can help eyestrain and headaches, improve concentration (by improving blood flow), boost hair health, relieve shoulder tension, increase neck mobility, calm the mind and ease emotional stress.

This technique is delivered with the client fully clothed using a chair or as part of a complete bodywork session using a table. Oil is recommended but optional for the scalp massage. For the table segment students may remove upper garments or wear a tank top or spa wrap as oil is applied to the upper arms, shoulders, neck and upper back. The instructor includes organic Ayurvedic herbal scalp oils from Solavedi. This blissful technique offers gentle relief from physical ailments in addition to general relaxation. Great to add to onsite chair massage, for geriatric clients (or others) confined to a wheelchair or as a creative ending to a table massage.

What to bring and special instructions:

•1 set of linens (tables are provided by the school, however they are low height)
•Please have clean hair and use no hair products on the day of the class. If you have long hair, please bring a hair accessory to pull it back
•Dress comfortably
•For the table segment it’s best to wear a tank top or spa wrap
