Indian Head Massage Treatments
2Indian Head Massage is based on the ancient Ayurvedic healing system. It has been practised in India for over a thousand years, originally by women to keep their hair in beautiful condition. Indian Head Massage stimulates the flow of blood to the hair follicles which not only improves the condition of the hair but also provides an invaluable treatment for stress-linked problems such as headaches and eyestrain.
The head, neck and shoulders are important energy centres within the body. If you are stressed tension tends to accumulate there which can result in a stiff neck or shoulders, eyestrain or headaches. Physical or emotional stress tends to result in tightening of the muscles in the back, shoulders, neck, face and scalp. Indian Head Massage focuses on these areas bringing about a release of tension and promoting relaxation. Clients tend to notice immediate improvements in physical and mental functioning.

“I didn’t know what to expect from an Indian Head Massage. Jacqui immediately settled my nerves by explaining what the appointment would involve. It was so relaxing – I did not realise how much tension it is possible to need released from my scalp. I found Jacqui to be very warm and friendly and her treatment helped me feel more relaxed through my neck and head than I have ever experienced previously”
