TRADITIONAL INDIAN HEAD MASSAGE
Traditional Indian head massage is relaxing and invigorating. Its roots lie in Ayurvedic medicine, one of the world’s oldest holistic healing systems based on the belief that health and wellbeing depend on a delicate balance between the mind, body and spirit. The treatment takes place seated wearing a soft towelling wrap. It begins with massage to the upper back and shoulders then moves to the upper arms, the neck and the head, concluding with the balancing of the three higher chakras. I use frankincense pure essential oil in my Indian head massages. Frankincense has long been used in meditation – it helps to relax and open the mind and is invaluable as an oil for emotional wellbeing and balance, lifting the spirits beyond the worries of the here and now, and lightening the load when one feels overwhelmed with life.
(You can also have Indian head massage without oils and clothed if you prefer).

Read more about Massage Therapy: Massage involves working the soft tissue of the body to ease day-to-day stresses, muscular tension and promote relaxation. It helps to increase delivery of blood and oxygen to the treated areas and can also be used in support of other therapies to assist in the rehabilitation of muscular injuries.
The pressure – deep or light – and the massage techniques used are adapted to suit the client’s individual needs and preferences.
People have massage for a variety of reasons. Some use it to simply relax and unwind, while others have regular massage to help them manage or cope with specific physical, mental or emotional problems. Many aspiring and professional athletes have massage before and after training and competing in order to stay in optimum condition and aid recovery.
There is a growing body of evidence to suggest that massage can be effective in helping to treat certain chronic conditions, such as fibromyalgia and low back pain. In guidelines produced in 2009 by the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE), massage is recommended for the early management of persistent, non-specific low back pain.
Before your massage treatment, I will provide a full consultation, asking you various questions about your health and lifestyle to ensure treatment is right for you. A nourishing oil is then used to provide a free-flowing massage, with towels carefully placed to ensure your modesty and keep you warm and comfortable throughout the treatment.
