Indian Head Massage - Taunton, Somerset.

Indian Head Massage in Taunton, Somerset.Indian head massage is a traditional art with its roots in ancient Ayurvedic medicine, which has been practiced in Indian for thousands of years.

The word ‘Ayurveda’ derives from Sanskrit, mean ‘science of life and longevity’. The belief of Ayurveda practice is the balance of body, mind and spirit. As part of this practice massage is integral, along with diet, herbs, cleansing, yoga, meditation and exercise. The head massage was originally designed as it says only for the head, but today the treatment that is offered includes, the head, neck, shoulders and arms. There is a strong connection between these parts of the body, so when massaged this induces a deep relaxation, becoming more of a stress management treatment rather than a treatment to stimulate blood flow to the head to encourage hair growth and condition.

Here are a few comments from clients who have experienced an Indian Head massage with me:

I would definitely recommend an Indian Head Massage with Honor. It soothed away my stress and left me feeling very relaxed.

Good morning just wanted to say thanks for the IHM. I crashed out on the sofa last night. Today my neck has never felt so good the massage really freed it up and the knot I’ve had there for ages has gone. I will definitely have another one.
