Indian Head Massage

Indian Head Massage is a form of massage beneficial for relieving stress and tension and is based on the Ayurvedic system of healing practised in India for over 1.000 years. Today Indian Head massage is no longer confirmed just to the head, but has been adapted to treat other parts of the body vulnerable to stress such as the neck, upper arm and shoulders.  

One of the many advantages of Indian Head massage is that the client can be seated and remain clothed and therefore a treatment can be given anywhere. 

Some of the many benefits of having an Indian Head Massage are as follows:

  • Relieves muscular tension and fatigue and helps to relieve tension headaches.
  • Slows down breathing and heart rate and is helpful for reducing blood pressure
  • Helps to relieve mental fatigue and improve concentration and elevate mood
  • Helps to promote sleep and stress reduction encouraging the body to rest and relax.
  • Improves circulation to the skin and hair, nourishing the tissues and promoting hair growth

    A typical session is 30 to 40 minutes long. A one-off treatment is always beneficial but a course of treatment is recommended for resolving any long-standing issues.


    “I had the most amazing Indian Head Massage with Caroline Platt and thoroughly recommend her.

    As a busy professionally I hadn’t realized how much stress had accumulated around my Neck and Shoulders.

    Not only did she come to my office, she took the time to find out more about me and my wellbeing, in order to personalize her treatment to me.

    Caroline made me feel at ease.

    As well as enjoying a fantastic Indian Head Massage, she also worked on my Neck, Shoulders and Back.

    After my treatment, I felt totally different, completely relaxed and I am  looking forward to the next one!

    Thanks Caroline you are amazing!”

    “I have now had an Indian head massage twice with Caroline and will definitely have it again. Before treatment I was feeling stressed and overwhelmed but left feeling my head was lighter and I was calm and relaxed for days afterwards. I highly recommend some well deserved pampering with Caroline.”
