What is Indian Head Massage

No ordinary massage

Developed in India over a thousand years ago, Indian Head Massage is based on the Ayurvedic system of healing. It is a highly effective technique for the treatment of stress and stress related conditions. The Massage eases tension and strain in the shoulders, head, face and neck in a sometimes vigorous but comfortable treatment.

Techniques including circling under the occipital bone at the back of the head, thumbing along the tops of the shoulders, head rubbing, and gentle root pulling combine to make this a varied and highly enjoyable Massage routine.

Since it can be carried out anywhere and is relatively quick to perform it is becoming a particularly popular therapy in the workplace.

Indian head massage concentrates not only on the head but also the face, ears, shoulders, neck, upper arms and back.

It specifically works on areas affected by mental and emotional stress. After just one session it leaves you feeling relaxed yet energised, calms the mind and alleviates muscular tension.

Indian head massage has been practiced in India for over 1000 years.

As well as being very enjoyable and soothing, Indian Head Massage has the effect of stimulating the mind and body.

An Indian Head Massage session can last from just 15 minutes if in the workplace to around half an hour. Following a brief consultation you will be seated in a low-back chair or stool to receive your Massage. You will remain clothed but wearing a shoulderless vest or light shirt is ideal to work most effectively on your neck and shoulder areas. During the treatment you may experience some new techniques and sensations such as gentle hair root pulling and light finger hacking on the head. These techniques will always be done within your comfort level and are designed to be stimulating and invigorating whilst also being highly enjoyable.

Essential oils are not normally used as I perform a dry massage (but can on request) so you do not need to worry about oil on your hair or clothes.

I will arrive at your home/venue with all the necessary equipment; all you will need to provide is a space - this doesn't have to be huge, so long as I can move freely around you whilst you are seated in the chair.

Once I have set up my chair, soft tranquil music (if desired) we will go through a brief  consultation which will help me establish whether you have any specific requirements, or medical conditions I should be aware of including what your hopes and expectations of the Indian Head Massage are. This is also your opportunity to ask me any questions you may have at this stage.

Indian Head Massage can be performed without the need to undress and may be performed with or without oils

you will feel incredibly  relaxed and recharged following this wonderful treatment,

How does Indian Head Massage

The aim of Indian head massage is to release physical stress and relieve psychological stress, aid the process of injury healing, to manage pain and improve the circulation of blood and lymph.

Stress that has accumulated in the tissues, muscles and joints of the head, face, neck and shoulders can produce specific negative effects on the body, such as headaches or insomnia. By manipulating the deep tissues the body goes into a natural healing state by releasing toxins accumulated within the muscles
