Indian Head Massage

Indian head massage has been used in Asia for over 5,000 years. The massage helps to ease tension and promote relaxation and well-being. Other parts of the body may respond to this relaxed state. The areas covered are the head, scalp, face, neck, shoulders and upper back. Indian head massage comes from an ancient method involving natural therapies, which takes into account mind, body and spirit.

An Indian head massage usually lasts for approximately 30-45 minutes.

You will be invited to take a seat and relax on a low backed chair. The use of oils is optional. If oil is used, a towel will be used to ensure your modesty. Alternatively, you can remain fully clothed.

As with all treatments, a full consultation should be completed with your therapist to ensure that Indian head massage is right for you.
