Indian Head Massage

Indian Head Massage (IHM) is an extremely relaxing therapy and works on the upper back, shoulders, arms, neck, scalp, face and ears. It works with a firm but gentle rhythm to release blockages and un-knot tense muscles, however, it is not only effective on a physical level, the treatment is calming for the spirit and promotes relaxation. IHM will soothe away stress and tension, leaving you feeling relaxed with a sense of well being.

How IHM works

IHM works by stimulating the flow of blood, lymph and oxygen in the upper body through a sequence of massage and pressure point techniques. It comes from the ‘Ayurvedic’ healing system which is based on the belief that health and wellness depend on balance between the mind, body and spirit. Working on an emotional and physical level, IHM can help relieve stress, by calming the mind and relieving tension.

Tell me about the treatment

IHM treatments are performed whilst seated and the use of oils is optional. If you choose an oil-free treatment you can remain fully clothed but a light-weight top is recommended. However, if oils are preferred, upper clothing can be removed and a large towel will be provided to ensure the client's modesty is maintained. The treatment begins at the upper back, moving to the shoulders and upper arms. Moving onto the scalp where a set sequence of techniques are used that stimulate, relax and rejuvenate the whole of the head. The IHM concludes with a gentle face massage.
