Indian Head Massage is an exhilarating treatment – excellent for headaches, migraine and neck tension. At Serenity Day Spa in Lakeshore, you can experience this form of massage which is the oldest form of medicine known to humans and an integral part of an Eastern Holistic Approach to healing. The art of Indian Head Massage specifically originated from Ayurveda, the ancient Indian system of medicine. This Sanskrit word can be translated as the “Science of Life” or “Knowledge of Life.” The Ayurvedic approach to health is the balance of body, mind and spirit. In Western Holistic approaches we refer to this balance of the body as “Homeostasis.”
