Indian Head Massage in Hornchurch

Based in Hornchurch we can easily assist patients from Upminster, Gidea Park, Emerson Park, Romford, Cranham and other surrounding areas

Indian Head Massage (IHM) is a treatment which has its roots in old Ayurvedic techniques involving work on the upper back, shoulders, neck, scalp and face.  Various massage movements are used in and around these areas and the aim of IHM is to release the stress that has accumulated in the tissues, muscles and joints of the head, face, neck and shoulders.  A variety of massage movements are used to relieve accumulated tension, stimulate circulation and restore joint movement.  IHM is also used to aid the condition and health of the hair, including stimulating growth, particularly when combined with the use of natural organic oils.  IHM can help to reduce stress and fatigue, increase mental clarity, and help you to feel relaxed and rejuvenated.


A consultation is carried out on the first visit during which any concerns can be raised by the client including sensitive areas to be avoided.


The client sits in a chair for the treatment.  The therapist uses a range of different movements including application of deep kneading and compression movements over the neck, shoulder and scalp areas.  In addition, the therapist will also gently stimulate and stroke pressure points on the face.


IHM may bring about:


A general feeling of wellbeing, calmness and relaxation

Dispersal of toxins from tense, knotted muscles

Stimulation and improvement of circulatory and lymphatic systems

Improvement of joint mobility

Higher levels of alertness and concentration


It may also help relieve or alleviate:


Tension headaches

Eyestrain / eye problems

Tinnitus and other ear problems


Neck and shoulder stiffness

Sinusitis and congestion

Hair loss/thinning

Scalp tension

Mental tiredness/anxiety/stress


Following a treatment some clients experience tiredness, dizziness, an increased desire to urinate (as the body eliminates toxins and waste materials) or aching muscles.  All of these side effects usually last for no more than a few hours, after which clients generally experience increased energy and alertness.  IHM should be avoided if you have had recent surgery, have a head or neck injury, a history of thrombosis or embolism or have spondylitis or spondylosis.


Sessions last 30 minutes.
