There is a new way for moms to get some relaxing me time in a way that is not so new — with an Indian head massage.

“The Indian head massage has long been an integral part of Indian family life,” said Massage Therapist Zada McGuire. ” It was developed by the women-folk as part of their grooming routine. It is believed to date back 4,000 years. When used in conjunction with herbs, spices, and essential oils it is claimed that this type of massage had an important medical function and could help strengthen muscles, firm skin and assist in the body’s natural healing abilities.”
