WHAT IS INDIAN HEAD MASSAGE?

TREATMENT

Before a treament, a medical history is taken. You remain in a seated position in a comfortable chair during treatment whilst the therapist works on your back, neck, shoulders, arms, scalp and lastly, face, The massage is very versatile in that it can be done directly onto the skin or through the clothes. The use of oils is optional although it does enhance a treatment. If oils are used on the hair, it is advisable, if at all possible, to leave it on for a few hours to nourish the scalp and hair. Apply shampoo to the hair before water when washing to help emulsify the oil.

Some people experience slightly achey muscles after treatment for a short period but this is a good sign that treatment is working and toxins are being released.
