Indian head massage

Indian head massage has been practiced for thousands of years and has it roots in the ayurvedic tradition. It aims to provide immediate relief for tense muscles and induce a feeling of relaxation and wellbeing. It is thought that receiving Indian head massage can help to

  • aid better sleep and reduce insomnia
  • release muscle tension in the shoulders, neck and scalp
  • improve circulation to the skin, scalp and hair
  • relieve tension headaches
  • improve concentration
  • provide relief from mental and emotional stress

Traditionally in India these skills were handed down through the generations; with grandmothers massaging mothers and mothers massaging children. For men in India head massage can be included in a trip to the barbers.

What to expect at a treatment

The massage takes place on a futon on the floor and the client is fully clothed throughout. I use smooth, flowing movements to press and stretch the whole body. I use my hands, feet, forearms, elbows and knees to release any energy blockages to bring a sense of wellbeing. Each massage is tailored to the needs of the client.

What to expect at a treatment

Before the treatment there will be a short consultation to find out exactly how I can tailor the treatment to your requirements. Typically a massage starts with you in a seated position while I massage the soft tissues of the upper back, shoulders and arms before moving to the head and scalp. You will then transfer to a lying position, for greater comfort and relaxation, while I continue to massage the neck and facial muscles.

Although I would recommend the use of oils for Indian head massage I do offer a dry massage option, without the use of oils, if you prefer.  I have a range of scented ayurvedic oils as well as unscented that you can choose from.

I am pleased to announce that I will now be able to offer massage therapies again. In the short term I will be doing this on a mobile basis, coming to your home and working in a COVID safe way. In the longer term I will be looking to resume using the lovely therapy room at Hot Lotus yoga studio.
