Indian Head Massage
" The whole 'Brenda ' experience was soothing, calming and very effective. "
Indian Head Massage is a treatment based on old Ayurvedic techniques. It can be administered with or without aromatic oils and was traditionally taught by Indian women to their daughters to encourage maternal bonding and to keep their long hair in beautiful condition.
The massage incorporates deep thumb and finger pressures, working on marma points to reduce muscular tension. Friction techniques to encourage good circulation and soothing strokes to reduce stress and fatigue. Working from the shoulders, arms and neck, finishing with the head and face.
The therapist will be aware and sensitive to the need of each individual and each treatment will be unique. For most it is a pleasurable experience, usually leaving the client with a feeling of calmness, clarity and well-being.
What will happen during a treatment?
The client will sit or lay fully clothed on a couch to receive treatment. A gentle or invigorating massage will be performed beginning with the shoulders, working up the neck, over the head, finishing with the face.
