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:
Eyestrain / eye problems
Tinnitus and other ear problems
Neck and shoulder stiffness
Sinusitis and congestion
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.
