Indian Head Massage Treatments
An Indian Head Massage treatment is often seen as a nice relaxing pamper but it is much more than that.
Indian Head Massage has been practised in India for over a thousand years to stimulate 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. When we are stressed tension tends to accumulate in these areas 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, scalp and hands. Indian Head Massage focuses on these areas bringing about a release of tension and promoting relaxation.
It is common to notice immediate improvements in physical and mental functioning.
Indian Head Massage can help with:
- Inducing relaxation
- Loosening the scalp
- Relieving chronic neck and shoulder stiffness
- Breaking down knots and nodules in the scapula region
- Relieving eyestrain and tension headaches
- Calming the mind and promoting better sleep

The purpose of an Indian Head Massage treatment is to realign your body’s natural energy system, bringing you back into balance physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
During your treatment I will massage the pressure points around your head, neck, shoulders, upper back, face and hands to help increase oxygen and blood flow to your brain.

“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”
