Plastic free, organic & Vegan oils

The environment is important to me so every care has been taken to source out oils which have minimal environmental impact.  I therefore choose to use plastic free, organic and vegan oils for Indian Head Massage.

What happens in an Indian Head Massage?

After you’ve filled in the Google health and needs form prior to your session, you will be asked to meet me in Open Space in Oswestry where I will take you to the treatment room. We will go over your health form and pick out the suitable oils for your skin and hair type (if chosen). You will be seated for the duration, where I will massage the requested areas of your upper body. There’s some gentle stretching and breathing included in your session unless not requested by you.

How does Indian Head Massage differ from other forms of massage?

Unlike sports massage, Indian Head massage isn’t used for muscle recovery.  Unlike Swedish massage, Indian Head massage is more gentle and classed as therapeutic.  Unlike Aromatherapy massage, Indian Head massage doesn’t include the whole body and doesn’t use essential oils – although some Indian Head massage therapists do. Indian Head massage uses therapeutic massage techniques and pressure points in the face, ears and scalp and can include the upper body.

Frequently asked questions

An Indian Head Massage is a traditional form of theraputic massage which uses gentle massage techniques and pressure points in the scalp and face to clear congestion, tension, headaches, stress and anxiety whilst encouraging healthy hair and skin growth. 

An Indian Head massage can include areas such as the head,  face, ears, neck, upper back, shoulders, arms and hands.  All can be included at no extra cost or it can be tailor made to your requirements.  There will be some gentle stretches and breathing exercises to help you get the full benefit of this wonderful practice. 

Benefits of regular Indian Head massage include:

  • Decrease in stress, anxiety, tension, headaches.
  • Improved skin  and healthy hair. 
  • Better mobility in the upper body 
  • Feelings of peace and contentment.
  • Should you choose to have oils on your skin, I’ll need to be able to access those areas easily. 
  • Should you choose not to have oils on your skin, aslong as you wear something which isn’t bulky and prevents me from massaging you. 
  • Most wear a vest top for easy access of the upper body. 
  • Please come make up free if you’re having your face massaged.

  • Calendula oil
  • Jobaba oil
  • Raspberry seed oil
  • Hempseed oil

You can choose to not have oil in your hair . I do have a range of hair speicific oils which mean they are light and will encourage shine , softness and hair growth. 

You can choose not to have oil on your skin.  It’s advisable though to use something on your skin to help the hands glide along the skin without pulling. 

Should you use any special lotions and potions, I’m more than happy to use them if you request this.
