Indian Head Massage
Indian Head Massage is a very relaxing treatment and excellent for neck and shoulder tension. Moving through the shoulders and upper arms then working deeply into the neck where tension accumulates relieves headaches on. This form of massage is now one of the most popular therapies available at the moment as you don’t need to undress and you sit in a chair. Our technique addresses the back, neck, and scalp and face, using a variety of massage pressures and techniques and is one of the most relaxing types of massage you will ever experience.

Published Research into Indian Head Massage
"[Jo] combined the massage with some Reiki which gave me some lovely warm sensations in my head and neck and gave me a sense of inner peace. She once more worked on my back and shoulders and this helped with a lot of tension I had amassed that week. She massaged my arms and then my hands and I was this time aware of some pressure points that made my scalp tingle. All the things that were special about her second massage were again very pleasurable and felt more assured than before. During and after I could feel my eyelids getting heavy (my sleep had been disturbed for a few days) and that night I slept much better." Jo H
