Warming your oil beforehand is a real plus point believe me and doesn’t take long in a pan of hot water.

Do you work in front of a computer all day? Are your shoulders tense, your neck stiff, your eyes tired?

De-stress and chase away those tensions in your upper body with an Indian Head massage.

Traditional Indian Head Massage is based on the ancient system of medicine known as Ayurveda (the science of life and longevity in Sanskrit) and has been practised for thousands of years. The Ayurvedic approach to health is holistic, balancing the body, mind and spirit and promoting long life.

Indian Head Massage, as its name suggests, was originally designed for use on the head, but has been Westernized to include the shoulders, upper arms and neck. As such it has become popular as a stress management technique.

Ease stress with an Indian Head Massage

Indian Head Massage can:

  • Relieve muscular tension and fatigue
  • Improve circulation
  • Help relieve emotional stress and elevate the mood
  • Help improve the condition of the skin and hair
  • Help relieve mental fatigue, promote clearer thinking, improve concentration and increase productivity

Massaging the scalp

Indian Head massage is traditionally given in a seated position. We use a special table head rest to allow you to relax more during the treatment. There is no need to undress but the massage can be more enjoyable if your upper back is uncovered so we can use oils. However, if you prefer to lie down on a massage table, it’s not a problem.

Throughout the month of May we are offering a 10€ discount :

25€ instead of 35€ for a 40 minute Indian Head massage.

Valid up to and including May 31st 2018.

Offer does not include gift vouchers.

Just call 06.47.14.06.03 for an appointment

Thought for the Day

The first statue of a woman in Parliament Square has been unveiled two years after the campaign for female representation outside the Palace of Westminster began.

The statue is of Millicent Fawcett, the suffragist who fought for women’s right to vote in the early 20th century.

We get so obsessed by the clouds that we forget the sky is still blue.

Blow away your angst

Need to let off steam?

Try this yoga breathing technique called sithali to calm the mind (in yogic thinking, it works by releasing excess heat from the body).

Sit comfortably and curl your tongue. If you can’t curl your tongue just extend it slightly through your lips and ‘sip’ in the air across its upper surface.

Inhale slowly through your curled tongue and exhale slowly through your nose.

Repeat 10 times.

 

This breathing technique is also useful in hot weather or during a fast as it cools the body and relieves hunger and thirst (in yogic thinking).
