Indian Head Massage is based on ancient Indian massage techniques used by families and barbers in India for over 4000 years. The massage is calming yet revitalizing, and focuses on the parts of the body most prone to tension and stress: the upper back,neck, shoulders, face and scalp. Indian Head Massage encourages the deepest relaxation and can help eyestrain and headaches, improve concentration (by improving blood flow), boost hair health, relieve shoulder tension, increase neck mobility, calm the mind and ease emotional stress.

This technique is delivered with the client fully clothed using a chair or as part of a complete bodywork session using a table. Oil is recommended but optional for the scalp massage. For the table segment students may remove upper garments or wear a tank top or spa wrap as oil is applied to the upper arms, shoulders,neck and upper back. The instructor includes organic Ayurvedic herbal scalp oils from Solavedi. This blissful technique offers gentle relief from physical ailments in addition to general relaxation. Great to add to onsite chair massage, for geriatric clients confined to a wheelchair or as a creative ending to a table massage.

Stress is reflected in the face when facial muscles become tense and tighten. Unconsciously, we contort our face and creases appear across the surface of the skin as the pressures of the day intensify. This class includes a blend of facial massage techniques that are not only relaxing and rejuvenating, but beneficial for reducing the effects of stress, tension and aging that manifest in the appearance and conditions of the face. The treatment includes facial lymphatic strokes, face lift massage techniques, relaxation/rejuvenating strokes of various depths and styles, moist heat applications, hot stone strokes and massage stimulation that benefits sinus problems, tension headaches and migraines.

  1. foot soak with compression
  2. circular effleurage with abrasives
  3. foot mask with plantar massage
