Indian Head Massage is a seated massage, lasting approximately 30 minutes with benefits that include helping to relieve stress by soothing tired, aching muscles in the head, back and neck.
This therapy has evolved from traditional Indian head massage techniques and now works on areas that include the upper back, arms, hands, shoulders, neck, scalp and facial muscles. Some ‘chakra’ energy work may be included towards the end of the session and more information can be given before the treatment if required.
Traditionally, oils are used to when working on the hair and scalp, however if you are unsure that you want oils used you may prefer to have a ‘dry’ treatment without oils in your hair if you prefer.

How Long Does a Treatment Last?
A Indian Head Massage treatment lasts 30 minutes, however the first appointment will last approximately 40 minutes as an initial consultation form will need to be completed, in order that I can provide the best possible treatment.
What to Wear
This treatment can be performed without oils through lightweight tops, such as T-Shirts and blouses; it is best to avoid wearing heavy jumpers. If you would prefer me to use oil, you will be invited to remove your top and will be provided with a towel to wrap around yourself, so that your shoulders are exposed during the treatment.
Tibetan Head Massage
This treatment differs from the Indian Head Massage, in that it is provided whilst you are laying on the couch and oils are not used. The treatment will be given on your head, face, shoulders, upper back, arms, hands, legs and feet. The use of a Tibetan Singing Bowl at the beginning and end of the session, is to heighten the atmosphere and vibration level of the session.
