What is an Indian Head Massage?

Indian Head Massage is a  beneficial and deeply relaxing massage to the head, shoulders, upper back, arms, neck, scalp and face.  With the aid of tranquil music you can drift away whilst a relaxing massage routine using a range of traditional movements developed for Indian head massage is carried out. 

When you feel stressed or angry, tension builds up in energy centres around the head, face, neck and shoulders.  This can later display itself as eye strain, headaches, migrane and stiff neck and shoulders.  We use a firm but gentle massage technique helping to unblock the uncomfortable build up of tension and aid relief.  The effect of this therapy is not just physical but works on and emotional level too, calming the spirit, relieving stress and promoting relaxation.
