Indian head massage

20 September, 2011

A form of massage rooted in the ancient Indian healing system of Ayurveda.

Indian head massage works on the belief that ailments are caused by blockages in the energy flow around the body; massage helps clear blockages, returning the body to a state of health. It’s often used for those suffering from stress, tension headaches, sinusitis, ear problems, insomnia, hair loss, muscular tension and fatigue.

What conditions is it used for?

Indian head massage releases tension and can help you to relax and feel calmer. Anyone can benefit from the sense of well-being it induces but it can be of particular value to those suffering from stress, tension headaches, sinusitis, tinnitus and other ear problems, insomnia, hair loss, muscular tension and fatigue. The recommended number of treatments will be assessed during your initial consultation.

What to expect

A full treatment usually takes 30 minutes and your first session will include an additional consultation. You will need to remove jewellery but can otherwise remain fully clothed. Treatment takes place whilst you are sitting and includes Massage, Shiatsu and Acupressure techniques.
