Indian Head Massage was brought to the United Kingdom by Mr. Maeda,
an Indian citizen who, while travelling in London, was disappointed to
find that when he visited a British barber to have his hair cut, all
he got was a hair-cut ! By compsarison, in his home in India he was
used to receiving a head-massage as part of the standard barbers' service.
Maeda returned to the UK (and on many subsequent occasions),
and taught the techniques that have now become known as "Indian
Head Massage". This treatment became so popular that approved training
courses have been developed by several major beauty/therapy examining
boards and are now approved by insurers.
One of the great benefits of Indian Head Massage is the convenience
of the client remaining fully clothed and so being able to receive the
treatment in offices and other public environments.
