“Indian Head Massage helps to melt away tension that we store in

our upper body, allowing us to clear our minds, calm our worries

and release pressure. The massage can be both invigorating and

also relaxing, depending on what your body needs at that time.”

Hilary, Jane and Maxine, Indian Head Massage Therapists

 

Ancient Solution to Modern Stress

What is Indian Head Massage?

Traditional Indian Head Massage is an ancient therapy which has been practised in India for more than 4000 years. This style of head massage has been passed down through generations and is used in the home and in barber shops across India. In the UK, we practice the European interpretation of this Ayurvedic healing system, extending it to include the face, neck, shoulders, upper back and arms.

Indian Head Massage helps to melt away tension that we store in our upper body, allowing us to clear our minds, calm our worries and release pressure. The massage can be both invigorating and also relaxing, depending on what your body needs at that time.

The experience is what makes it special. Through the use of scents, massage and music you allow yourself to enter into a place where you can re-balance, re-focus and relax.

What happens during a treatment?

Your first appointment begins with a consultation to enable a full assessment of your needs. This will be carried out in complete privacy, where all personal details remain completely confidential.

You will be asked to remove any glasses, jewellery and hair accessories and hair should be loose and not highly styled. Please note that this treatment may mess up your hair so probably best not to go out to dinner straight afterwards!

This massage takes place in a comfortable chair and, with a large towel wrapped around your chest will be asked to expose your upper back from just beneath your shoulder blades. Oils can be used on all or part of the area to be treated. The treatment begins with massage of the upper back and shoulders, then onto the upper arms, the neck and the head, finishing with some moves on the face. The massage of the head can be quite vigorous with stimulating frictions and pressures to the scalp. Other areas of the massage are smooth and gentle. However, please remember that the massage can be adjusted to your specific needs, likes and dislikes.
