Indian Head Massage was first introduced into the UK by Dr Narendra Mehta, who arrived from India in the early 1970s to train as a physiotherapist. Being away from his home country he began to miss the benefits of a regular head massage so decided it was time to develop it in the West.
Balancing the flow of the body’s subtle life energy – or “prana”, as it isknown in India – is an important part of Ayurveda and many other Eastern medical philosophies. It also involves balancing the flow of energy by working on the body’s energy centres, “chakras”. Working with the chakras can release any stagnant energy within the body and restore a balance that brings a feeling of inner harmony and peace.
Indian Head Massage is a holistic therapy that works specifically on the area surrounding the head, scalp and neck and extending to the shoulders and upper back.
An Aromatherapy blend can be mixed to increase the healing benefits.
The therapeutic effects of Indian Head Massage last long after the treatment is over. The short and long-term benefits are individual, varied and include the following:
* Neck and shoulder pains
* Stress symptoms
* Tension headaches

* Jaw ache
* Strengthens immune system
