Indian Head Massage

Indian Head Massage is an extremely effective therapy that has evolved from traditional techniques practised in India as part of family rituals for over a thousand years. The technique I practice is true to the original massage brought over to the UK from India.

The treatment involves massaging you through your clothes to your upper back, shoulders, upper arms, neck, face and scalp while you remain seated in an upright position.  This massage works on particular areas of the body, especially the neck and the shoulders where stress affects major muscle groups, and it often brings immediate relief. Tensions are eased and fibrous
knots and nodules melt away. The efficiency of the circulatory and lymphatic systems improves, toxins are dispersed from tense muscles and flexibility and fluidity of movement is restored.

An Indian Head Massage is done with you sitting in a comfortable chair for the duration of the massage, ideally wearing a camisole or vest top with thin straps. Treatment normally begins with a massage of the neck and shoulders, some work to the arms follows and then the scalp is massaged and the hair briskly tussled and gently combed.
