INDIAN HEAD MASSAGE
Indian Head Massage has its roots in Ayurvedic treatments, the oldest approach to Indian Healing. The Ayurvedic view of health is based upon balancing the three life forces (doshas) – Vata, Pitta and Kapha and although the treatment only involves the upper body, the benefits are widespread.
Indian Head Massage is a truly holistic therapy and has many physiological and psychological benefits. The treatment works on balancing the whole body through the chakras in the crown, brow and throat. In addition, it is used to release the stress and tension that has accumulated in the tissue, muscles and joints of the head, face, neck and shoulders.
Clients are usually treated in a seated position and the areas treated are the upper back, shoulders, neck, head and face. The treatment can be given with the Client lying on the couch if that is preferred. It is excellent for Clients who are new to massage and can be performed with the Client fully clothed, or with only the top half of clothing removed if you would like oil used.
In all my Indian Head Massages I use Neal’s Yard products (unless there is a specific requirement for another product). Details of Neal’s Yard products can be found here.
Treatments can be given for 30 or 60 minutes or as part of a combined treatment. Please see the Combined Treatments page.
