With the hustle and bustle of this season, imagine finding much needed time for yourself to indulge in a mini-spa.  

The art of Indian Head Massage has originated from Ayurveda, the ancient Indian system of medicine. The Ayurveda approach to health is the balance of body, mind and spirit and the promotion of long life.

Here in the west, we tend to view the scalp as independent from the rest of the body and treat it in a different way or not at all. However, in some parts of India, the scalp is regarded as an extension of the body skin and lavished with care and attention!

Everyone in India, has their own techniques passed down from generation to generation. In many parts of India, this is an integral part of their daily routine and is highly recommended for everyone throughout all stages of life.

In the west, the concept of IHM as a complementary therapy was first introduced in the United Kingdom in 1981 when The London Centre of Indian Champissage International ™ first open its doors. From there it was brought to Canada to which The Canadian Centre of Indian Head Massage ™ was established.

IHM has many possible benefits; from general relaxation which calms and revitalizes; to relaxing tight and painful muscles, eases stiffness, and breaking down knots in muscles. It can improve lymphatic drainage which helps the removal of waste products and toxins. It can give your hair a healthy lustrous shine and improve skin condition. IHM helps to dissipate mental tiredness and stress, resulting in greater mental alertness, concentration and clearer thinking. The list goes on and on, of the many benefits clients have reported.
