Indian Head Massage
The name Indian Head Massage is misleading, as it includes massage of the upper back, upper arms, neck and head. These are the areas where tension caused by stress is often felt.
Indian Head Massage as practiced in Western society was developed by Narendra Metha and first made it's appearance in the UK in 1981. You can find out more about the history and development of Indian Head Massage as a therapeutic treatment by clicking here
The recipient remains clothed throughout. I don't use any oils. During an Indian Head Massage, clients sit on a chair or lie face down on a massage couch.
Different therapists have different ways of giving Indian Head Massage. Some are able to go deeper than others. My Indian Head Massage is a gentle massage that helps bring the body back into balance. The body has been through a lot to show the effects of stress. I believe that a gentle massage activates the body's relaxation response and parasympathetic nervous system, bringing peace into the body and mind.

Holistic therapies do not replace the need for medical attention. Holistic therapists do not diagnose medical problems or manipulate bones. Always tell me if you have a medical problem, even a minor one. There are certain situations in which caution should be taken when receiving massage and bodywork.
