Indian Head Massage

Indian head massage is an ancient therapeutic treatment that has been practiced in India for thousands of years.  

IHM is a treatment based on old Ayurvedic techniques involving work on the upper back, shoulders, neck, scalp and face. 

A variety of massage movements are used to relieve accumulated tension, stimulate circulation and restore joint movement. 

IHM is also used to aid the condition and health of the hair, particularly when combined with the use of natural organic oils. 

Indian Head Massage is used by practitioners to help reduce stress and fatigue, increase mental clarity, and relax and rejuvenate the receiver. 

Pregnancy Massage

During pregnancy is a great time to have a massage. Feel safe in the knowledge that our therapist has had extra training to ensure your wellbeing throughout the treatment. Benefits during pregnancy include.​

  • Relaxation – massage during pregnancy helps to stop the build-up of tension, especially in the neck and shoulders   

  • In the later stages of pregnancy tension in the lower back caused by the extra weight of the baby can be alleviated  

  • Uplifting and revitalising – massage increases the flow of endorphins and minimizes fatigue – usually felt at the start and end of pregnancy  

  • Improves circulation – veins often become more apparent in pregnancy and there is a tendency to varicose veins (although we never massage over varicose areas!)  

  • Stimulation of lymphatic drainage – this is especially important during pregnancy because of an increased tendency to fluid retention in ankles and feet  

  • Relief of aches and pains – massage relieves aches and pains caused by distended ligaments and also the tendency to cramp
