What is Indian Head Massage?

Indian Head Massage is a practice that originated over a thousand years ago in India, where it stemmed from a tradition of family grooming. Indian mothers use this technique even today to massage their daughters' hair with different oils to encourage long, lustrous locks. Men receive this treatment during visits to the barbershop.
