Indian Head Massage

Indian head massage is based on the ayurvedic system of healing which has been practiced in India for over a thousand years. It provides Indian families with relaxation and healing on a daily basis, as well as playing a part in rituals such as weddings and births.

The aim of Indian head massage is to release the stress that has accumulated in the tissues, muscles and joints of the head, face, neck, shoulders and back.

The client, if it’s a man will remove his clothing on his upper part of his body and a women will also do the same except she will wear one of our garments so that we can work on the upper part of your back as part of the therapy treatment. The client will then sit in a special massage chair for the treatment or alternatively we can use our massage bed. The therapist uses a range of different movements including application of deep kneading and compression movements over the upper part of the back, neck, shoulder and scalp areas. In addition, the therapist will also gently stimulate and stroke pressure points on the face. The session will usually last up to forty-five minutes. Before we start we ask your permission to use essential massaging oils that have a lovely fragrance and also we ask that the pressure we apply during the massage is comfortable for you.

Recommendation

tai-fu

As part of your Indian Head Massage therapy we thoroughly recommend you to purchase either of the two products to rub into your affected muscle areas for extra pain relief and help sooth sore muscles:

Tei Fu Massage Lotion

This is a very effective creamy lotion for relieving pain. Has all the same benefits as Tei Fu Essential Oil. Applied topically, only, the skin tingling sensation will either be a cold or warm feeling depending on how your body reacts. This reaction is perfectly normal. It encourages relaxation and relieve stiff and sore muscles. It will also leave the skin soft and supple.
