Is an extremely effective therapy where the treatment involves massage to the upper back, shoulders, upper arms, neck, face and scalp.  The recipient remains seated in an upright position.

It has been a daily part of Indian life for thousands of years and is a method of cleansing and maintaining the health of the body as a whole, and is understood to be beneficial practice for achieving inspiration and joy.

It is based on the ancient Ayurvedic healing system using the upper chakras.  The head represents who we are and is the center of our nervous system and it is the home to our identity and intelligence.  So if our head feels good then our entire body feels good.
