Indian Head Massage is an ancient Ayurvedic healing system practised all over India for thousands of years by those from everyday man and his family to royalty.

As the head holds many pressure points relating to the rest of the body – particularly to the emotional centres in the brain, Indian Head Massage is particularly effective for emotional/mental stress.

At Green Tara College we pride ourselves on the unique and beautiful Indian Head Treatment that we teach.
