Indian Head Massage - Relaxing and Refreshing


Indian Head massage

What is Indian head massage?

Indian head massage is based on the Ayurvedic system of healing which has been practiced in India for over a thousand years. It provides Indian families with relaxation and healing on a daily basis, as well as playing a part in rituals such as weddings and births, not to mention everyday events like a trip to the barber.

In the West it has been modified to add the face, neck, upper back and shoulders and clients can remain clothed and seated upright on a low backed chair or you can opt to sit on a special massage chair which gives fuller access to the upper back, shoulders and neck, which would require you to remove some of your clothing.

The combination of stimulating and soothing strokes can increase blood flow, release tense muscles and clear mental fatigue, and is particularly suited to the computer user who sits hunched for long periods of time and, as a result, has a sore and aching head, neck and shoulders. There may also be a sudden increase in energy together with a return of flexibility to the neck and shoulders.

The Indian Head Massage Session

The treatment will start with a consultation to gather information regarding your symptoms and general health to allow a blend of oils to be recommended for your particular needs. Janice will then leave the room to allow you to undress and get on the massage chair. During the massage, all parts of the body not being treated will be covered by a towel. If you prefer, you may remain fully clothed and sit on an upright chair and in that instance no oils are used. It is recommended that you leave the oils on overnight, if possible, to gain the maximum benefits from the therapeutic properties of the oils.

Each appointment allows time to review your last treatment, your needs for the present treatment and time to relax at the end. Our aim is to provide you with an ‘oasis’ in which to unwind and escape the pressures of day to day living, whilst giving restorative care to your body. 

If you have a medical condition you may have to consult your GP before undertaking a treatment. Please ask for further information.
