Indian head massage is said to balance every system in the body, and the benefits associated with it make up a lengthy list. Topping that list is its ability to combat stress and anxiety and help us find balance. The intent of this massage is not only to ward off stress, but also to stimulate the body to heal itself and to reduce the rate of progress of any prevailing condition.
It works on the subtle energy matrix (the prana or life force), by balancing chakras, nadi (prana vessels), and finally the marma points (the nadi junction).
