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 my massage services. 

What happens in a massage?

Before your massage, you will fill in a Google Health form which we’ll go over before your treatment is carried out either at Open Space Studios in Oswestry or your home should you want a mobile massage appointment. We will pick out the suitable oils for your skin and depending on which massage you have chosen, I will advise you how to best get comfortable. For Swedish massage, you will be lying down and for Indian Head massage, you will be seated.

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.  There’s the option to include an Indian Head Massage in with your Swedish Massage.

Frequently asked questions

An Indian Head Massage is a traditional form of therapeutic 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. 

Swedish massages use medium pressure to release knots, stress and tension out of the body’s muscles and tissues whilst encouraging the lymphatic system to drain any toxins away. 

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 body and scalp massage include:

  • Decrease in stress, anxiety, tension, headaches.
  • Improved skin and healthy hair. 
  • Better mobility
  • 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.
  • Take off all jewellery.
  • Bring a brush or comb and a hair band for Indian Head.
  • If having a full body massage, please keep your underwear on and you will be covered with a towel. 

I use plastic free packaging and organic vegan oils which include but are not limited to:

  • Argan oil
  • Calendula oil
  • Jobaba oil
  • Raspberry seed oil
  • Hempseed oil
  • Coconut oil
  • Grapeseed oil
  • Mustard seed 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.
