INDIAN HEAD MASSAGE

Indian head massage can help with relieving stress, tension, fatigue, headaches, migraine and sinusitis. 

It can also help improve circulation and lymphatic drainage to the shoulders, head, neck, scalp and face.
The therapy has been adapted from an ancient Ayurvedic system of healing which has been practiced in India for over a thousand years. Our visitors have reported that they have felt calm and deeply relaxed following a treatment, but also energised and better able to concentrate.

What happens in a session?

An Indian Head Massage lasts 20-30 minutes. You remain clothed and it is done seated. No oils are used. The massage technique includes upper back, arms, shoulders, neck, scalp and face. The massage employs gentle stroking, stimulating and pressure movements.

When can Indian Head Massage be given?

Because of the stimulating nature of the treatment it is not recommended during chemotherapy when hair is falling out. It can be very beneficial when hair is starting to re-grow as it stimulates the scalp and hair follicles.

It can also be helpful after surgery to promote shoulder mobility and joint movement.
