What is Indian head massage?
Indian head massage is a form of massage of the head neck and shoulders derived from the Indian ayurvedic tradition created in India thousands of years ago. The aim of the massage is to release any tension that is being held in these areas and in doing so rebalancing the energies. We spend so much time thinking, so this treatment can really help to calm the mind; it is deeply relaxing and calming. Indian head massage is especially good for relieving stress, tension, insomnia, headaches, migraine and sinusitis. Clients report that the experience is extremely calming and relaxing, leaving them feeling energised and revitalised and better able to concentrate.
A range of different techniques is used to release tension and create a sense of total relaxation and well being. It helps to relieve muscular discomfort and tension as well as enhancing the senses and promoting clear thinking.
Starting at the upper back the treatment begins by applying pressure to points that dissolve knots and relax the muscles. The shoulder and upper arms are massaged as these are common areas of tension, and then onto the neck and head to release headache-causing blockages and to encourage better circulation. The massage then continues to the scalp, relaxing the entire head, encouraging circulation and stimulating hair growth. Lastly a gentle face massage which is wonderfully relaxing and may relieve symptoms of sinusitis & headaches, it also encourages good circulation and a glowing complexion similar to that of our natural lift facial massage.

Hopi ear candling also known as Thermal Auricular Therapy is a pleasant and gentle treatment of the ears. It is used to treat a variety of conditions associated with the ear, nose and throat areas. The therapy is widely used by doctors in Europe and America as an alternative to conventional treatments such as antibiotics, ear syringing and grommets (A grommet is a very small tube that is inserted into the ear through a small cut in the eardrum. It is used to treat a condition called glue ear found mainly in children) A grommet will drain away fluid in the middle ear and help to maintain the air pressure in the middle ear cavity.
Hopi ear candling is an ancient and natural therapy. It is believed that the Ancient Greeks used ear candles, initially probably for cleansing, purifying and healing on a spiritual basis, but much later on a more physical basis. The practice became more widely known due to the native American Hopi Indians of North Arizona. Ear candles were used traditionally by the tribes Shamen healers and this was depicted in ancient wall paintings showing the use of ear candles in initiation rituals and healing ceremonies of the tribe. Today's candles are still made today on the basis of the old traditional formula originating from the Hopi Indians.
The process of Hopi candling involves a specially designed hollow candle being inserted just inside the ear canal. The hopi candle is then lit and the suction that is formed draws secretion, the ear canal is gently stimulated and the vapour collects and removes impurities or deposits. Often referred to as the ‘chimney’ effect. The rising air gives the ear drum a gentle massage and also helps to regulate ear pressure. This is soothing, calming and protects the irritated areas.
Users of Hopi ear candles have reported success in treating balance and inner ear problems, build up of wax, ringing in the ears, tinnitus, hearing difficulties and sinus problems as well as colds, ‘flu, sore throats, hay fever, rhinitis, stress, headaches and migraines. The treatment is suitable for children particularly those that suffer from 'glue ear' and it is a good alternative for people who do not like having their ears syringed.
