Indian Head Massage
Therapeutic, relaxing massage

Indian Head massage works intensively on the physical and subtle energies of the three higher chakras of the body. Working on the shoulders, neck, face and scalp, it is very relaxing and also therapeutic.

It can be particularly effective in the gentle treatment of:

  • Stress
  • Tension
  • Headaches
  • Migraine
  • Eyestrain

Indian Head Massage - or Champissage -  is a wonderfully relaxing therapy based on the ancient Ayurvedic healing system. It has been practiced in India for over a thousand years.

Remedial Massage
Recovery and restoration after injury

Remedial massage is designed to aid recovery and restoration of mobility after certain sustained injuries. This massage works extremely well with strained or sprained muscles and ligaments. The therapist will firstly check out the posture of their client and then the connective tissue as compensatory factors often arise after specific injuries or other problems.

Remedial massage can improve tissue elasticity with active and passive movements, with deep tissue massage also helping to increase blood circulation and the flow of lymph.

Remedial massage also helps increase the permeability of the tissue and the break down of scar tissue after injury. It can also help to prevent Delayed Onset of Muscular Stress (DOMS) and contribute towards restoring the balance of the autonomic nervous system.

Keeping the body in good health

Reflexology works on the principle that the human body is reflected in the feet with reflex points on the feet relating to every organ in the body.

Applying pressure to the feet with specific thumb and finger techniques helps reduce stress and tension, increases blood supply to affected organs, thereby improving circulation, and helps to eliminate toxins. The therapist aids the body’s own natural means of adjusting any imbalance to restore it to a sense of well-being.

Reflexology is a non-invasive form of treatment which can induce deep relaxation and complements all other therapies.
