Indian Head Massage has been used for thousands of years and is now very popular as a Westernised treatment.
What does it involve?
Indian Head Massage uses different techniques and movements including stroking, kneading and gentle compressions on the tops of the arms, shoulders, neck, head, scalp and face. Muscles are gently stretched and relaxed to promote a feeling of relaxation and well being.
- It may help release stress accumulating in the tissues, muscles and joints of the head, neck and shoulders.
- It may help minimize tension in the neck and head.
- It may help with blocked sinuses and the remnants of cold symptoms.
- It may help joint flexibility and mobility of the neck and shoulders.
The final part of the treatment includes strokes and smooth movements around the pressure points of the face.

Stress-busting at work
A shortened Indian Head Massage can be tailored to help relieve a stressed and cluttered mind and is especially beneficial for people working at a desk or within an office for long periods of time. It is a therapy that can be enjoyed during a break and may help to create a personal ‘feel good’ factor and because you do not have to undress it can be accessed anywhere. It is a calming and relaxing therapy after which you may find it easier to concentrate.
What should I expect from treatment?
Indian Head Massages are done fully clothed, with you sat comfortably in a chair. It is usually done without oils unless specifically requested.
