Indian Head Massage

The Indian Head Massage is an ancient Indian healing practice found in Ayurveda, the Indian medical system (approx. 5, 000 years old) In Sanskrit, Ayur means life and Veda means knowledge. Ayurveda emphasizes treating the whole body as a system. Ayurveda recognizes that maintaining balance of the elements in the body and mind is essential for optimal health and the process of finding that balance begins with self-awareness.

ayurvedic touch 1Experience the healing art of touch with the Indian Head Massage. Using a base oil, aromatic scalp formula and essential oil, the massage starts with the upper arms, shoulders, upper chest, neck, upper and lower back, (we could stop right here and you’d be in heaven, but there’s still more) …the forehead, temples, entire scalp and face. Leave feeling deeply relaxed, restored, grounded and uplifted in mind and body.

In Ayurveda, the body is considered the temple, and the head is considered the alter of the temple. Once the mind relaxes into a state free of dis-ease, the body state can also be freed from dis-ease. The body and mind are connected as one.

A few things to know about the Treatment

  • On the day of your appointment if you are experiencing a severe headache/migraine then it is best to reschedule for another day.
  • Because I am using oils your hair and skin will be oily/ greasy afterwards. You may wish to set time aside afterwards to go home and shower after your treatment or bring a hat or scarf with you to cover your hair- if the treatment is at my house. If I am coming to your place, you might also want to reserve some shower time for yourself. We can always omit the use of oils if need be.
  • Please wear older clothes as its possible that oils may touch your clothing.
