Indian Head Massage – may help reduce stress, tension and fatigue

Indian Head Massage
is a treatment based on old Ayurvedic techniques involving work on the shoulders, neck, scalp and face. A variety of massage and stretching techniques are used which are designed to relieve accumulated tension, stimulate circulation and restore joint mobility. Indian Head Massage may help reduce stress, tension and fatigue, increase mental clarity, and relax and rejuvenate the receiver.


This is a reclined massage so you will be lying, face up, on my heated couch and covered with a warm blanket. It is possible to give Indian Head Massage with the client fully clothed, but in my experience it’s more pleasurable if oil is used so for this reason it’s best for you to remove your top (obviously I will give you privacy to get ready).

I use organic coconut oil for this treatment as I also only use organic products in my clinic and it’s the perfect texture for this particular type of massage. You are however free to bring along your own oils if you prefer. The massage itself includes work on your upper shoulders (front and back), neck, scalp and face and is designed to be deeply relaxing.

Although I use fairly standard Indian Head Massage techniques, I tend to spend more time on the areas where I can feel the most tension, incorporating extra techniques where I feel they will be beneficial.

I started seeing Sue for reflexology about two years ago and it has made a big difference to my wellbeing, especially with the Indian Head massage added on at the end.  I cannot emphasise enough how much pleasure I get from the treatments.  I enter a place of total relaxation, calm and wellbeing.  Sue’s touch is full of care and consideration for your needs and makes you feel you are in a haven of total tranquillity to the point I find it hard to open my eyes at the end of the treatment.  I have a 30 minute Indian Head massage which feels longer and I totally zone out and lose track of time.  I have recommended Sue’s treatments to my friends who have also said they will be definitely using her again.
