Holistic Therapies

Indian Head Massage

Indian Head Massage This ancient healing system of Ayurveda, which has been practiced for thousands of years in India, incorporates Indian Head Massage as a treatment to help release blockages within the energy flow around the body, returning it to its natural well-being state. In India babies are massaged every day from birth to keep baby healthy and happy. This tradition has been passed through the generations and head massage forms an integral part of family life and is even practiced on street corners and beaches.

The Westernised version of Indian Head Massage incorporates the upper back, shoulders, arms, hands, neck, scalp, ears and face. Although massage is only applied through clothing to these specific areas, potentially the whole body can feel benefits providing a truly holistic therapy.

IHM is particularly effective in treating stress-related conditions where tension can show in stiffness in the upper back, shoulders and neck. Eye strain and even hair loss can be signs of stress and applying massage to the above mentioned areas of the body, can help to reduce muscular tension and stimulate circulation. Balancing the energy flow can help rejuvenate the body, resulting in feelings of calm and relaxation.

In a typical session, you will be seated and fully clothed and asked to remove your shoes. For your own comfort, it is suggested you wear a cotton T-shirt. Following your consultation, oils specifically chosen for your skin/hair type will be used (optional) in your massage.

Angela was recommended to me by a friend and it was a great recommendation - her manner is caring, thoughtful and meticulous and, over the last 6 weeks of treatment, she has managed to reduce my aches and pains and improve my general well-being. I will certainly be recommending her to others.

I have enjoyed a course of aromatherapy massage and Indian Head massage with Angela. I have found her to be very professional in her approach. She explains what she is to do in a thorough way and ensures that you are comfortable at every stage of the massage. Her massage skills are very good. Afterwards she has sought feedback and taken care to provide me with guidance for post massage care e.g. drinking plenty of water, to ensure my well-being. Based on my confidence in Angela's abilities I have been happy and to recommend her to two of my friends who have since become clients.
