What is Barbershop Massage?
Based on Indian Head Massage this is very versatile treatment for all shave services – from a quick 2-3 minute scalp/forehead massage to end a shave to a full 30 minute arm/hand/shoulder/neck/scalp/face massage as an extension to the shave routine or as a stand-alone treatment.
The reason that Turkish and Indian barber shaves are so memorable is because massage is part of every shave service.
