What is Indian head massage?
Indian head massage is a therapeutic massage technique that originated in India over 5,000 years ago. It focuses on the head, neck, shoulders, back, scalp and face as these areas hold a lot of tension, e.g. when sitting at a computer desk for long periods of time. Various massage movements and techniques are used to manipulate the muscles and release any discomfort and pain.
What happens during an Indian head massage appointment?
A typical appointment lasts approximately 60 minutes which includes time to chat about how you are and any concerns you wish to discuss. On your first appointment a full history will be taken and the areas identified that you wish to improve on.
You will be seated and remain clothed during the session. Soothing music will be played to help you unwind in a safe and relaxing environment. If oils are used then a towel is provided to protect your clothing. The pressure used during the massage will be adjusted to your level of comfort.
