Indian Head Massage

What is Indian Head Massage?

Indian Head Massage is a massage therapy that works specifically on the areas of head, scalp, face, neck, shoulders and upper back using a variety of massage techniques. Although the name implies just a scalp head massage you can see it targets many areas where we tend to hold stress.


Who can have Indian Head Massage?

Indian Head Massage is suitable for most adults but there are certain conditions where you should avoid Indian Head Massage.  A consultation will be carried out before the treatment to check if there are any contra - indications (anything which would prevent treatment) or if the treatment will need to be adapted.


In some circumstances your doctor's permission may be required before treatments can commence. Each treatment is tailored to the your individual needs.

Please note therapists do not claim to cure, prescribe or diagnose and should not be used as an alternative to seeking medical advice if you have a particular health concern.

What happens when I go for a treatment?

Following your consultation, you will be invited to take a seat and relax in a low back chair. The treatment is carried out in a sitting upright position. The head, face, neck and upper back and shoulders are worked on. Oils are optional for the treatment, if no oils are used you can remain fully clothed and a light weight t shirt would be ideal.

However, if oils are preferred the upper clothing can be removed and a large modesty towel used. Oils such as coconut,  olive, grapeseed to name a few can be used on body or pre-blended oils (such detox or muscle ease). The natural oils can also be used in the hair. The treatment lasts for 45 minutes so please allow 55 mins and for the first consultation please allow around 1 hour 5 minutes.

How can Indian Head Massage help?

I have truly loved the Indian Head Massage therapy! This was my first visit and I will surely return given that every aspect of the experience was well worth it from the first minute of welcome/ introduction all the way through. Great rooms and atmosphere with calming music and relaxing scents. Kay is very friendly and actually cares and shows the passion for what she does.
