What is Indian Head Massage?

A deeply calming and relaxing massage to mainly the Head but does include upper back, shoulders, neck and face.


You will start on your front where pressure of your preferred firmness is applied through massage to your upper back, shoulders and head.


Half way through you move onto your back where your neck, chest, head again and then your face are massaged leaving you feeling absolutely wonderful.


For clients with mobility issues or trouble laying down I can adapt the treatment to a sitting position, please just send me an email.


This treatment is safe in pregnancy, please select add on 'Pregnancy' at the booking stage so I can adjust the treatment accordingly.


Indian head massage originated in India as part of the practice of Ayurveda medicine and remains very much a part of every day family life. Ayurveda aims to balance the bodies energies and promote a long healthy life. It was brought to the west in the 1970s and we are so grateful!
