Indian Head Massage Training (IHM) has been practiced in India for thousands of years and was originally used as a technique to keep long, thick hair in healthy condition. At that time, it only involved massage of the head and hair. However, the modern Indian Head Massage includes unique techniques applied to the upper back, shoulders, neck, upper arms, face, head and scalp. IHM has been practiced in the UK, Europe and Canada at Aromatica since the 1990’s utilizing the best elements of head and body massage. This therapy is particularly beneficial to people who are desk bound and experience pain and tension in the upper body.
