Indian Head Massage

Indian Head Massage focuses on stretching and relaxing facial, neck, cranial and shoulder muscles, easing the daily aches and pains caused by stress, whilst the mind gently drifts into a relaxed state. Not only does it promote strong, healthy and shiny hair, it also stimulates the body’s natural powers to heal itself.

Indian Head Massage has been practised for thousands of years by the women of India and Indian barbers. However, in England therapists offer a more westernised form of Indian Head Massage in order to concentrate the treatment on specific areas of stress; such as the neck, shoulders, upper back, upper arms, face and head. A longer treatment of 45 minutes also includes the hands and lower arms.

What to expect

You either lie down or sit in a chair; this is the patient’s choice. You remove your outer layer of clothing, such as jumpers/cardigans and then you are wrapped in a towel, so massage oils can be used without staining your clothes. Your therapist works on the upper back, shoulders, neck, scalp and face using a variety of movements (both relaxing and invigorating) to relieve accumulated tension, stimulate circulation and restore joint mobility. All treatments can have a combination of pure essential oils added at no extra charge.

What can Indian Head Massage help treat?

I really wish I had come to see Chantal sooner, it just shows that sometimes the answer is easier than you could possibly imagine.

I have suffered with continuous headaches for over 20 years, some of which lasted for 3 days or more and I was more or less resigned to the fact that I would have to put up with them for the rest of my days.

I find myself guilty of judging a book by its cover and in Chantal’s case this was a mistake. I made her aware at our first meeting that I was ‘anti doctor’ and highly sceptical of her chances of curing my headaches. However, she talked me into giving it a go and she was right. I have to say I am amazed!

This is an understatement really because just after 4 visits I have had only 2 headaches, only one of which was bad. I know that sounds a lot but in that time I would normally have suffered with a dozen or so. It has also helped my general mobility and has really improved my quality of life. Riding my bike has become a pleasure again and not a pain in the neck after 50 miles.

I really wish I had come to see Chantal sooner, it just shows that sometimes the answer is easier than you could possibly imagine.

I just want to say thank you. Somehow that does not seem enough but she really is a star! I will have no worries about recommending Chantal to my friends and hope she receives the recognition she deserves. She has my eternal respect and gratitude.
