Indian Head Massage (IHM) was developed by Indian women as part of their daily grooming routine and still has relevance and benefits for all of us today. In many places in India, the scalp is regarded as an extension of the body skin needing specific care and attention. When our scalp is viewed as separate from us, we can forget the importance of paying attention to the head; yes, we all know that amazing feeling of a really good shampoo just before a haircut!

IHM is a simple and effective treatment

IHM is a technique that focusses on the head and upper body. Clients are fully clothed when they do the IHM which is initially started by sitting in a chair and finishing by laying on a massage table. By the end of the session, many clients report feeling a deep sense of calmness and balance throughout their body.

Other benefits include releasing tight muscles, easing stiffness, and uplifting the spirit.

We have become so busy in our lives…

Busy lives make us forget to take time for ourselves. Experiencing IHM opens up space to hang up your worries at the door and enter into a calm, peaceful and comfortable environment.

We all need to slow down, relax and re-connect with ourselves.
