Indian Head Massage is a technique that treats the scalp, face, neck, shoulders and upper arms. Clients seeking relief from stress and tension find this treatment convenient, as it is quick and effective in terms of results and might be performed anywhere, because no special resources are needed. There is no need to undress, if the client doesn’t wish oil to be used during the massage. It is also suitable for clients with special needs such as heavily pregnant or a client in a wheelchair.
