The History of Indian Head Massage:-
Indian Head Massage goes back over 4,000 years. Indian Head Massage always played an important part in Indian life and the techniques have been passed down through generations.
In 1973 Narendra Mehta came to England from India. He wanted to bring to the West an holistic massage to include the head and face. So he devised his own massage techniques which included these areas and to help the well being of the whole body he incorporated the balancing of the body’s 3 top energy Chakras.
It was in 1995 that this Indian Head Massage was formally accepted in colleges as a professional qualification by VTCT and other bodies.
