Indian Head massage is a traditional and very effective therapy. It has evolved from traditional techniques, practised in India, as part of family ritual, for over a thousand years. It has its origins in ancient medicine known as Ayurveda.
The treatment involves massage to the scalp, face, neck, upper back, upper arms, and shoulders with the client seated and supported in an upright position.
This treatment is ideally carried out on bare skin using oils. If the client wishes to keep their clothes on then the techniques can be carried out over clothing and no oil used if the client wishes not to get oil in their hair. Please state your preference at the point of booking.
Indian head massage promotes the restoration of balance and harmony to the body and mind. The therapeutic benefits go way beyond boosting hair health, helping to alleviate anxiety and stress by promoting a deep state of relaxation.
The treatment incorporates the use of massage and acupressure techniques using both firm and gentle pressure. This relaxes those areas and rebalances the body’s energy.
