If you LOVE that massage you get at the hairdressers when you have your hair washed (and almost feel a bit cheated when you don’t get it 😉 ), then Indian Head Massage is a treatment you will enjoy. But it’s not just a deep and relaxing treatment, it is also a highly beneficial holistic treatment, tapping into the Chakras affecting the mind, body and soul. Starting with the upper back, the massage relieves tension and knots in the trapezius, shoulders, upper arms and neck. Moving onto the head, we pour a warm oil (suited to your requirements and choice) onto the scalp and carry out the full massage for a truly soothing, nourishing, yet stimulating treatment. Finally, a facial massage is then performed leaving you completely relaxed and revitalised.
Benefits of Indian Head Massage include:
- Encourages hair growth
- Nourishes hair and skin
- Relieves tension
- Improves lymphatic drainage in the upper back, head and neck
- Relieves and prevents headaches and migraines
- Reduces stress, anxiety and depression
- Relieves insomnia
- Promotes a general sense of calm, tranquility and wellbeing
Treatment time – 45 mins* – £27
This massage is performed while you sit upright in a chair with your shoes off and your feet firmly on the ground, thus aiding the root Chakra. Unlike our other treatments, the Indian Head Massage can be performed through clothes, though we recommend to use oil instead.
As with any massage, a thorough consultation will be given to discover the areas which require the most attention. This means we can tailor the treatment to you, including the choice of oil. Afterwards, personal aftercare will be given so you can continue to get the most benefit from the treatment moving forward.
*All treatment times are INCLUSIVE of consultation & aftercare time
Origins of Indian Head Massage
Indian Head Massage is a holistic therapy based on Ayurveda, an ancient Indian healing system. The therapy has been practised in India for thousands of years and is a part of their everyday routine, usually in the morning, because although it can be very relaxing, it is also a very stimulating treatment. Children are taught to practise this therapy on each other from an early age and as such this kind of massage is deep within their culture for general wellbeing. Over time the Indian Head Massage has developed to not only include the scalp but also to include the upper back, shoulders, upper arms and face.
