Indian Head Massage

Unwind | Healing | Soothing

This treatment releases tension from the muscles and joints of the shoulders, neck, scalp, and face. Tension in these areas can cause headaches, insomnia and sinusitis among other things.

The therapist will massage your shoulders, neck and scalp to relieve tension. They will also gently work on pressure points on your face to promote deep relaxation.

Check your private health plan or insurance. You may be able to claim back some of the cost of your treatment.
