Indian Head Massage

What is Indian Head Massage?

Indian Head Massage is a simple and deeply relaxing therapy that is very effective in combating the pressures and stress of modern living. Indian Head Massage involves massage to the upper back, shoulders, arms, neck, scalp and face. Treatment can either be relaxing or energising, to meet your particular needs. You will remain fully clothed and be seated comfortably in a chair. There is also the option to have the treatment carried out using blended oils, in which case you would be provided with a towel to wrap around your upper body. Oils on the hair itself is optional but not necessary if you don't wish!

What are the benefits?

Although an Indian Head Massage involves only the upper part of the body, the potential benefits are widespread. The treatment has many physiological and psychological benefits, and many recipients of Indian head massage comment on the fact that they feel as if their whole body is balanced after treatment.

Indian Head Massage is especially good for reducing stress, tension, fatigue, eye strain, insomnia, headaches, migraine and sinusitis. Clients report that the experience is deeply calming and relaxing, leaving them feeling energised and revitalised and better able to concentrate. Additionally, Indian Head Massage can help promote healthy hair growth and improve the condition of the scalp.
