What is an Indian Head Massage Treatment?
Indian Head Massage is a relaxing seated massage that aims 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 concentrates on areas that are vulnerable to stress such as the upper back, arms, shoulders, neck, scalp and facial muscles. Some ‘chakra’ energy work may be included towards the end of the session.
Traditionally, oils are used to condition the hair, scalp and skin, but you may prefer to have a ‘dry’ treatment without oils in your hair. The therapy can also be performed through light clothing, if preferred.
Benefits of Indian Head Massage
Indian Head Massage promotes a sense of wellbeing whilst aiding sleep and a feeling of balance and calm.

How Long Does a Treatment Last?
A Indian Head Massage treatment lasts 30 minutes.
I will add a further 40 minutes to your initial treatment, so that a full consultation can be carried out. During this time I will ask you about your symptoms and medical history. Please bring details of any medication you have been prescribed and are taking, in addition to details of any scans, such as X-Rays, Ultrasounds or MRIs to this initial session. I will record what you say in my notes which will be kept confidentially in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998. If you wish, you may ask for a copy of these notes, however, an administration fee will be charged.
For follow up treatments, I will add and extra 15 minutes.
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. Oil may be used in the hair, if preferred.
How Will I Feel After my Treatment?
You may experience some mild discomfort for up to 24 hours following the treatment. This is a normal, positive process as your body responds the massage.
