Indian Head Massage

Indian Head Massage encourages tension to be released in the muscle tissues of the shoulders, neck, head and face while soothing the nervous system and calming the mind.

With its’ origins in Indian culture and embedded into daily family life the Indian Head Massage incorporates Ayurvedic Massage and includes work on the upper back, shoulders, neck, head, scalp and face.

With desk work being commonplace nowadays the upper body can be a store house for physical muscular tension from hours spent seated, staring at a screen plus the shoulders are attributed to holding emotional tension too, not to mention the mental strain of all that thinking – Indian Head Massage is a perfect solution!!

How can you benefit? The Massage helps to increasing flexibility and mobility in the joints, improving the blood and lymphatic flow, relaxes connective tissue, frees knots of muscular tension and aids the body to eliminate toxins and waste. It’s a great treatment for alleviating the negative effects of stress.

Whatever your reason for selecting an Indian Head Massage it is a great treatment for getting to those areas that are difficult to touch yourself! The variety of strokes from deep kneads, compressions to gentle tapping/ stroking can allow for either a deeply soothing and sedative style ( great to prepare you for sleep), something more energetic ( if you feel like you need uplifting!) or a combination of the two!

Several options available;

  • seated / lying down – you choose, it’s about what feels more comfortable for you.
  • with oils – if you are receiving an oiled Indian Head Massage then the the upper back is exposed ( you are given a towel wrap to wear) and oil would be applied to the shoulders, neck and if you are comfortable with it to your scalp.
  • over clothes – you will NOT have oils used – this is a great way to be able to have a Massage in the middle of your work day or when you don’t want to get messy!

During your consultation you can choose to have a traditional Ayurvedic oil like coconut oil or sesame oil use in your session.

Clients comments vary after their Indian Head Massage session it may be they feel deeply relaxed and calm or if they’ve chosen something more energising a  feeling of more energy and being revitalised.  Indian head massage is particularly good for reducing the effects of stress.

I found it very calming. After each treatment  I slept incredibly well. Without question I would not hesitate to recommend this treatment ; it’s a great experience. Indian Head Massage CS
