History of Indian Head Massage
Indian head massage has its origins in the ancient system of medicine known as Ayurveda, which was developed in the Himalayan region by holy/wise men known as Rishis. It has been part of daily life in India for thousands of years. This form of massage is commonly offered on street corners, in the marketplace or on the beach in modern India.
The head, more than any other part of our body represents who we are. It is the centre of our nervous system and home to our identity and intelligence. Shampoo comes from the hindi word ‘champna’ which means to knead and massage the scalp.
