Is Indian Head Massage for you?
So, you may ask yourself, is Indian head massage for me? Well, the good news is Indian head massage is suitable for most adults, young and old. However, there are certain conditions you should not have Indian head massage. Therefore, your Indian head massage session begins with a consultation that enables me to determine if Indian head massage is right for you. I put your health first, so you may need to consult your doctor to get permission before your treatment can start if you have epilepsy. If you are unsure about anything, please contact me for advice before booking an appointment. All your medical and personal information remains confidential for future treatments.
Please note you should not use Indian Head massage instead of conventional medical care. Consult a health care professional for medical advice.
What happens during an Indian Head Massage
Your Indian head massage lasts for 30 minutes and starts with a consultation before the treatment.
After the consultation, I invite you into the treatment room. You will then sit on a low-backed chair as the treatment is around the head, face, neck, upper back, and shoulders. I can do the treatment without using oils so you can remain fully clothed. However, I recommend that you wear a loose fitting top. You can remove your upper clothing when having this treatment using oil; therefore, I will provide you with a large towel to ensure your modesty.
Once the treatment has finished, I will give you water to drink and a final consultation. In this consultation I will answer any of your queries and will give you after care advice. You should avoid alcohol and caffeine in the hours after the treatment.
