SMP Healthcare

Indian Head Massage is a holistic therapy that has been practiced in India for over 1000 years. This treatment is reported to provide relief from aches and pains, encourage relaxation and an overall feeling of well-being as well as helping to promote a healthy scalp and hair.

In its traditional form the technique was restricted to the head and hair however there is now a system that incorporates the upper back, shoulders, neck, upper arms and face with the concept that these areas are all important energy centres of the body and by including them into the treatment, the whole body can benefit. This enhanced method was developed by Narendra Mehta who has over 25 years of experience in bodywork and has studied in various hands-on therapies.

Physical and psychological benefits include:

  • General and specific relaxation of muscles, providing immediate relief.
  • Fibrous adhesions (knots and nodules) can be broken down.
  • Loosening of the scalp.
