Indian Head Massage
What is Indian Head Massage?
An intensely relaxing massage, to the upper back, shoulders, neck, arms, head and face. Creating a feeling of balance and calm to the whole body, whilst targeting those areas most vulnerable to stress and tension.
Indian Head massage is based on the ancient system of Ayuveda, and has been practised in India for thousands of years. The Ayuvedic approach to health is the balance of body, mind and spirit, and the promotion of long life.

What to expect:
The treatment takes about 40 minutes.
Your initial treatment will take a little longer because it includes a free health and lifestyle consultation. Although Indian Head Massage is an extremely safe and effective treatment, it may not be suitable for everyone. Carrying out a consultation enables me to work safely and effectively, and allows me to tailor the treatment to suit your needs. Please be assured, all information is treated confidentially.
Before the treatment, simply remove any clothing covering your upper back, shoulders and arms. I will provide a robe to wrap around your body. I begin by massaging oil into the upper back and shoulders, working into this area especially as it often holds a lot of tension. Following this, flowing motions will move up the neck massaging and stretching to relieve any stress and tension. Finally, the scalp and face are massaged using a combination of stimulating and soothing techniques.
All you need to do is sit back and relax!
(You may wish to bring a hat to cover your head after the treatment, as your hair will be a little oily.)
