Who will treat me?
Generally Charlton will be your massage therapist.
What will happen during the treatment?
During your Indian head massage therapy, you may remain clothed at all times. You will be seated on a chair from where the treatment will take place.
The massage usually begins with the upper back, where a combination of deep massage and pressure points help to relax the muscles and to loosen and melt knots. Moving through the shoulders and upper arms further releases the common spots for holding stress and tension, and then working deeply into the neck where tension accumulates relieves headaches and improves cerebral spinal fluid circulation. Moving up to the scalp, techniques are used that stimulate, relax and revive the whole of the head, increasing circulation and promoting healthy hair. Finally the treatment may include a gentle face massage with techniques that help circulation, skin tone, and sinus and headache problems.
Is there a consultation process?
Yes. If you have a computer, to save your treatment time, we’ll send you a consultation form to complete before you come along for your Indian head massage.
When you arrive we’ll chat through this to fully understand what you would like to get out of your Indian head massage treatment. We will then decide together on a treatment plan. If you would like to tie this in with reflexology which is also highly effective for stress related disorders or nerve reflexology for pain, then please let us know and ensure you book enough time.
Why would I not be able to have an Indian head massage massage?
There are a few illnesses which mean an Indian head massage would not be the best holistic therapy for you. In this instance, we wouldn’t be able to treat you with an Indian head massage, but there are plenty of other therapies that would be more suitable and we can help and advise you in making the best choice.
