Indian Head Massage

Woman having head massage
Indian Head Massage is a totally relaxing experience.  It is based on old Ayurvedic techniques and involves massage of the upper back, shoulders, neck, scalp and face.  The treatment can be carried out with no oils if you wish but it is preferable to use them as this enhances the experience for you.

A standard treatment would begin with you lying face down on the massage table with your head, neck, shoulders and upper back uncovered.  Oils would be applied to the upper back, neck, shoulders and upper arms to begin the treatment.  Various massage techniques would be applied to relax aching, tired muscles and to promote a sense of relaxation and well-being.  Oils are then used on the head and the massage continues.  Often stress is carried in the neck and head so massaging the head can rejuvenate, ease stress and even promote healthy hair growth!  During the massage relaxing music will be played and essential oils burned to promote a very therapeutic and relaxing session for you to take the stress away.

Towards the middle to end of the session you will be asked to turn over and the massage will continue on your forehead, face and neck.  At the end of the session you will be allowed time to relax before working on some breathing exercises to ground and centre you after the treatment.  

Indian Head Massage also concentrates on clearing the chakras and releasing negativity.  Your practitioner will be working on your crown, third eye and throat chakras during the massage.  For more information about the chakra system please see our Chakras page.

A typical session lasts 30 minutes and costs just £25 - discounts are applicable if you book and pay in advance for multiple sessions.  If you wish you can combine the healing energies of Indian Head Massage with other treatments such as Reiki, aromatherapy massage or reflexology.  Please see our Treatment Pricelist for information on costs for combined treatments.
