Indian Head Massage Bristol

Giving and receiving Indian Head Massage is a wonderfully relaxing,
uplifting experience.

One advantage is that it is carried out through clothes, (or with perfumed oils on the skin, if preferred ) while you relax in a chair, and includes upper back, shoulders, neck, head and face.
It is part of the ancient Ayurvedic healing system of India.
Indian Head Massage can be very effective in the treatment of headaches, migraines, insomnia, and stress, as well as muscle tension, and problems with the neck and shoulders.
It can also be very helpful for sinus problems, whiplash, and eyestrain and promotes the growth of lustrous hair. Hair oil can be used if required. (See recipes for hair you can try for yourself, below.)
Its effect is not only physical: it works on an emotional and mental level, bringing a sense of peace, psychological wellbeing, clarity, and can improve levels of concentration.
I qualified in 2000 and have carried out treatments in many different situations, including the world famous Glastonbury Festival, the Big Chill Festival held in Herefordshire and Greece (On the beach! A wonderful working experience.) I have also enjoyed bringing the soothing effects of Indian Head Massage to many corporate events and promotions, in Bristol and nationally. 

Indian Head Massage Workshops Bristol

I run enjoyable one day workshops to learn Indian Head Massage in Bristol for friends and family. Come on your own or with a friend or partner.
This type of massage is very accessible. You dont need to remove any clothes, and you dont need any special equipment. Neither do you need a full head of hair!
(Equally it can be done on skin with fragrant, therapeutic essential oils.)
By the end of the day you will have learnt a simple and effective Indian Head Massage routine, with which you will be able to relax your friends and family, helping them to sleep more soundly, relieve headaches, sinus problems, aches and pains, improve hair condition,  and generally feel better about life. Next workshop -see below.

Scalp massage feel wonderful. Can help with headaches, stress and hair condition. It doesnt matter if you dont have any hair!

What people are saying about the workshops
I really enjoyed the day, thankyou so much! I found it informative and relaxing, and I really feel that I have learned a new and useful skill -family and friends are looking forward to the experience. I was slightly worried about coming on my own...but it was absolutely fine.

Massage into damp, but not dripping, hair and leave for 20 mins. To remove oil, rub a little shampoo on your hair and scalp before washing it.

25ml water
2 teaspoons cider vinegar
3 drops lemon essential oil, or try lemon juice 
Mix together, and rinse hair.

Rinse well after using.

  For balding (but no promises to grow more hair!) try:  Two of the following essential oils: Rosemary, ginger, cedarwood, or lemon essential oils, mixed with 5mls of almond oil, (quantities of essential oil as above, for normal hair - ie 5 drops in total) to stimulate hair growth.  Also bear in mind that the act of massage itself will stimulate circulation to the scalp and help to encourage hair growth. Leave on for 20 mins and apply regularly. To strengthen hair you could try:  One drop of rosemary in a cold final rinse. No need to rinse out. Rosemary is particularly good for dark hair, but will work on any hair.
