ABOUT

TREATMENT

  • Working with a firm, yet gentle rhythm, your masseuse will use massage and acupressure techniques to stimulate relaxation,
    relieve tension and encourage circulation.

  • Typically, the massage will compromise of the following:

  • Upper back – dissolving knots and relaxing the muscles.

  • Shoulders and upper arms – relieving tension.

  • Neck and scalp – relieving further tension, removing blockages that cause headaches and stimulating improved circulation.

  • Facial massage – which can relieve tinnitus symptoms and encourage a glowing complexion. 

  • Originating in India, the techniques of Indian Head Massage (IHM) have been passed down through the generations for over
    a thousand years.

  • Recognising that the head, neck and shoulders are energy centres for the body, IHM removes the tension that inevitably settles and accumulates in these areas. Such things as stress, pollution, lack of exercise and other ailments are contributing factors to this tension.

  • Additionally, IHM is effective in reducing symptoms of illnesses. The various massage techniques eliminate negative energy while releasing positive energy into the body, thus restoring it to optimum health.

  • IHM is simple, safe, effective and also very relaxing!
