WHAT TO EXPECT DURING YOUR TREATMENT
My Indian Head Massage treatments last for 40 minutes. Your first treatment will take a little longer and includes a preliminary health and lifestyle consultation so that I can tailor my treatment to your specific needs. All you will need to do is remove any clothing that covers your shoulders and upper arms. I’ll provide you will a soft robe to wrap around yourself.
My treatment is usually done while seated and involves the use of oils which have an incredibly beneficial effect on the hair and skin.
It starts with the shoulders, upper arms and back – around the shoulder blades, working into these areas as they often hold a lot of tension. I’ll then move to the neck area using flowing motions up the neck, massaging and stretching to relive any stress, tension and tightness. Finally, I massage along the acupressure points on your head and face.
Indian Head massage is great for your hair but please bear in mind that you will have oils rubbed into your scalp, so you may want to bring a hat along to wear afterwards. Shoulder length hair (or longer) will be tied back at the start of the treatment and then loosened during the head massage.
