An Indian Head Massage is a traditional Indian technique of treating the upper back, neck, shoulders, face and scalp, with the recipient remaining clothed. The techniques were originally developed by women who used oils, such as Sesame, Coconut and Mustard oil to help keep the hair strong.
What are the benefits?
The therapeutic effects of Indian Head Massage last long after the treatment is over. The short and long-term benefits are individual, varied and cumulative and can help to:
- relieve eyestrain and headaches

- improve joint mobility
- relieve stress and muscular tension
What does a treatment involve?
Treatment is carried out to the upper back, across the shoulders, upper arms, neck, scalp and face, with the client remaining fully clothed and seated in an everyday chair. Because the treatment is non-invasive, it may be undertaken anywhere.
How does it work?
Indian Head Massage works on both a physical and psychological level, the techniques used represent a de-stressing programme for the whole body. By massaging the head and shoulders, energies will become rebalanced and a general feeling of relaxation will be achieve.
