About Indian Head Massage

Indian head massage treatment is carried out seated and it can be done with or without oils.
 
The tissues, muscles and joints of the head, face, neck and shoulders are especially prone to accumulating significant amounts of stress and tension. This can affect body and mind by causing symptoms like headache, shoulder pain and stiffness, sinusitis, poor sleep, low energy, feelings of mental or emotional strain.
 
The treatment area therefore includes a variety of massage techniques carried on the face, scalp, neck, shoulders, arms and hands.

What it does
Indian head massage helps to eliminate a build-up of toxins from tight and knotted neck and shoulder muscles to increase joint mobility and flexibility and provides immediate relief from pain and stiffness.
  
It increases oxygen uptake in the tissues, improves circulation of blood and lymph and loosens the scalp.
Overall, it can relax the whole body and help to relieve associated debilitating symptoms.

My Story
I am a fully qualified, insured member of the Federation of Holistic Therapists (FHT) and the British Acupuncture Council (BAcC); also an accredited member of Anxiety UK .  I now practise Indian Head Massage in addition to acupuncture and I am fully committed to enhancing my skills and experience through a variety of continual professional development activities.
My previous public sector career in health and social care gave me lengthy experience of supporting people back to work from illness, injury and emotional distress. It led me to undertake a three-year, full-time degree course at the well-respected International College of Oriental Medicine in East Grinstead, where I graduated with a BSc (Hons) in Acupuncture.  Since then I have completed postgraduate training in facial holistic acupuncture and gained a Certificate in Indian Head Massage from Brighton Holistics - a double-award winning local therapy training centre based in Brighton, East Sussex.

Complementary Therapy and Cancer
I work with adults and teenagers on a 1-2-1 basis and treat them holistically for a wide range of health and wellbeing issues. I have a special interest in supporting men and women affected by cancer and for the last two years I've been working as a voluntary complementary therapist practising acupuncture at the MacMillan Horizon Cancer Support Centre in Brighton, which I enjoy enormously.
