Indian head massage

What is Indian head massage?

Indian head massage has been practised in India and Asia for over 5000 years. Mothers will regularly massage their babies, and believe the best way to comfort a baby is to touch and stroke, comforting them in times of distress.

Indian head massage works on the scalp, face, neck, ears, arms, upper back and shoulders.

Indian head Massage enhances circulation and aids all of our systems to restore, assisting our  bodies in self healing helping us to get rid of unwanted toxins within our body and mind, helping us physically and mentally, naturally letting us unwind and relax in a world where we don't stop thinking, worrying, looking at computer screens and feeling so much tension in those shoulders.

How is Indian head massage performed?

I perform Indian head massage from my home in Exeter, I can also come to you or your workplace during lunch breaks or at staff meeting (Please contact me for further details)

You can have oils (recommended) with an Indian head massage or dry, depending on your preference. You will be fully clothed although I do advice the ladies to wear a string vest or bandeau top to get the best benefit.

I do my Indian head massages slightly differently, lying down comfortably on my massage couch, as is a much more comfortable and secure for your head. People also love to add this treatment onto a reiki session, giving complete relaxation. 


I have split Indian head massage into 3 sections, and each lasts 10 minutes so you can mix and match or have the whole treatment. Great if you are on your lunch break or need to rush to be somewhere!

The 3 sections are : 

                                  * Head and Ears 

                                  * Face

                                  * Arms and Hands


Please note I do not do the back, neck and shoulder areas. 

How will it make me feel?

A session of Indian head massage can make you feel relaxed and re vitalised, You should have a restful nights sleep after a session. As Indian head massage works on getting rid of toxins you can occasionally feel dizzy, tired, and ache like you have been to the gym! This is nothing to worry about,  and shows that it is working. Another side effect can be peeing, sneezing or crying, again this is nothing to worry about, its just your body helping you to release whatever is needed!
