This book which was previously published as ‘Indian Head Massage in Essence’ has now been completely revised and updated.
‘Indian Head Massage, the Essential Guide’ provides therapists, students and the public with an interesting and accessible introduction to Indian head massage.
The book includes fascinating information on ayurveda, doshas, chakras and marma points. It also includes comprehensive information on relevant anatomy, physiology and pathology as well as the benefits of Indian head massage and contraindications to treatment.
It goes on to concentrate on practical application with step by step instructions on treatment and massage techniques.
Information on Indian head massage courses and advice for therapists is provided, along with a list of relevant websites, further reading and a very useful glossary of terms.
Written in an accessible style with photos and illustrations, numerous frequently asked questions and case studies, this book is the perfect introduction for therapy students, professional therapists topping up their skills or anyone wanting to learn more about the history and practice of Indian head massage.
The authors are practising therapists and experienced tutors and teach a range of complementary therapy courses in the UK and abroad. They trained in Indian head massage with the late Narendra Mehta (MBE) who introduced Indian head massage as a complementary therapy to the UK in 1981.
“This book really reflects what I knew already: that Mary & Lesley’s dedication to treating and training others would shine through every page.”(Narendra Mehta MBE)
