Traditional Indian Head

Treatment
Indian Head Massage aims to treat the whole person and not the symptoms of the disease. Indian Head Massage helps to restore a state of balance by relieving stress through the body's natural healing process. Once the body is "in tune", it is best to have regular treatments to help maintain a state of balance.

As well as being a relaxing encounter, it can also be an invigorating and refreshing experience. After a treatment you will often feel a 'balanced' feeling of peace and calm and will usually feel more alert and revitalised
