Indian Head Massage is part of 'Ayurveda', one of the world's oldest medical and holistic traditions. To this day it continues to be an important part of Indian culture and way of life.
As a therapy, Indian Head Massage is designed to be received quickly and easily with the minimum amount of fuss, preparation and disruption (for this reason it is experiencing a surge in popularity as a corporate massage treatment for office-based workers). Its aim is simply to provide a time of deep relaxation and relief from stress and muscle tension. A treatment can be both relaxing and reviving, leaving the recipient feeling calm, warm and positive.
A treatment is carried out whilst the recipient sits in a chair. It is usually given through clothes and without oils, although oils can be used. There is no need for a client to 'go home and take it easy' afterwards, although it would be beneficial! It also isn't necessary to wear loose and comfortable clothing for a treatment, but a client may prefer to do so.

“I came to Wendy with neck tension, which was really painful and affecting my day to day routine. As an IT person I am desk bound for a lot of the day and I needed to tackle my posture and neck tension pretty quickly. After a few Indian Head Massages, my aches and pains had gone and I continued to have more massages with Wendy as I enjoyed the wonderful stress relief they gave me”
