Indian Head Massage: What To Expect

On arrival a consultation will be carried out to find out about your health and well being; this will highlight any focus areas as well as deciding how to adapt the treatment specifically to your needs. It also allows you to ask any questions you may have as well as allowing the therapist to determine whether a treatment is suitable. (Treatment may be unsuitable due to some medical conditions, please see contraindications page for more details).

Indian Head massage is usually a seated massage, however if you will be more comfortable lying down then this will be accomodated for you. This massage can be performed through clothes, the benefits of this are that if you are short of time e.g. on a lunch break, on your way to or from work you can be ready to begin and leave much sooner. Some people prefer to remain clothed, if you have arrangements after the massage leaving with oil on your skin may not be appropriate.

If you choose to have the masasge with oils you will be given a towel to wrap around you under your arms so that only your upper back shoulders and neck are exposed. There are several oils to use from, these can be selected for their seasonality, properties or personal preference to smell and texture.

In Spring and Summer sesame and coconut oils are chosen as they are light, in Autumn and Winter mustard or olive oils are chosen as they are warming.

You will be able to change in a private, screened area and get comfortable on the massage couch or seat.

This massage lasts for 30 minutes and focuses on the upper back, neck, shoulders, arms, face and scalp.

At the end of the treatment you will be able to dress and then take a seat to have some water before going back out into the world.
