Indian head massage has been used in Asia for over 5,000 years and works specifically on the area surrounding the head, scalp, face, neck, shoulders and upper back. Indian head massage comes from Ayurveda, an ancient method involving natural therapies, which takes into account mind, body and spirit.
An Indian head massage usually lasts for approximately 30-45 minutes, although the treatment can be shortened to 15-20 minutes if it takes place in the workplace.
You will be invited to take a seat and relax on a low backed chair. The use of oils is optional e.g. sesame, coconut, mustard, olive or a special blend of oil with added herbs and spices. If oil is used, a towel will be used to ensure your modesty. Alternatively, you can remain fully clothed.
As with all treatments, a full consultation should be completed with your therapist to ensure that Indian head massage is right for you.
