Indian Head Massage is based on the ancient healing system of Ayurveda and has been practised in India for thousands of years.

It is a relaxing holistic treatment that uses acupressure massage on the head, face, neck and shoulders.

By massaging these acupressure points it brings into balance your body’s energies. This form of massage focuses on the three higher “chakras” of the mind, body and spirit and as such stimulates your upper energy centres.

Usually, Indian Head Massage is achieved while the client is seated, this popular massage takes around 20-30 minutes and works on the upper back, shoulders, neck, head and face to help ease a variety of stress-related conditions and relieve muscular tension.

An Indian head massage stimulates the flow of blood, lymph and oxygen in your upper body. For this reason, is good for clearing your sinuses, relieves stress and helps you sleep better.

It is said to help cure headaches (even migraine), eye strain and anxiety, some say an Indian head massage can help you to concentrate better at work. This is because your mind is more relaxed and, so it is more comfortable for you to take on board tasks.

The method is simple to learn, highly effective and makes a great accompaniment to other therapies such as body massage, reflexology, aromatherapy and reiki.

The Understandings of Indian Head Massage
Indian Head Massage has been practised in India for over 1000 years. In India, from birth through to old age, the tradition of massage has been passed down through the generations and is very much a part of everyday family life.

Receiving a head massage during a trip to the hairdressers or barbers  shop is commonplace in India and it is also incorporated into special rituals such as weddings and births.
Precautions
• As with any treatment it is important to tell your therapist in advance if you:

• are, or think you might be, pregnant
• have any medical conditions or are receiving any treatment or medication.
• have recently had an injury or operation
• are allergic to anything, particularly skin allergies
• have any broken skin or sores on your scalp
• as this may affect the kind of oil and treatment you receive.
• Indian Head Massage may be contraindicated for people with certain health issues or medical conditions, so it’s always best to check with your GP before receiving treatment.
• Aids the circulatory, muscular and nervous systems
• Frees knots of muscular tension and relaxes connective tissue
• Stimulates arterial circulation, and increases venous and lymphatic flow
• Reduces stress and can induce a feeling of euphoria
• Stimulates the skin and underlying nerve endings
• Aids in the elimination of accumulated toxins and waste products
• It is particularly effective in addressing the effects of stress.
There is no need to undress for an Indian Head Massage as it is a treatment that can be carried out through light clothing.

Hair Benefits
When we’re stressed, the scalp can tense and tighten up, restricting blood flow to the area. The pure physiological level, by increasing the blood flow, moving lymph, and changing the range of motion. In turn delivers the nourishing nutrients needed to encourage healthy hair growth and to promote strong and shiny hair.

The use of Oils
Incorporating oils into an Indian Head Massage can soften the skin and deeply condition the hair. Sesame is a balancing oil and is also believed to help relieve muscular pain and stiffness. Olive oil is a good alternative and is particularly suitable for dry hair and scalps.

Headaches
With regular treatments, the frequency and intensity of stress-related headaches can be reduced significantly, as the massage releases tension and promotes relaxation to headache sufferers.

Eyes and Sinuses
As you work on the pressure points of the forehead and around the eye sockets it relaxes and soothes tense in the muscles and helps to relieve eye strain. Blocked sinuses are relieved by working on the cheekbone pressure points.

Indian head massage is a technique of manipulating soft tissues in the shoulders and scalp. The therapist uses a range of different massage pressures and rhythms to stimulate the head and neck area.

By relaxing the mind, you can alter the way you manage situations. Indian Head Massage is a non-invasive yet thorough way to release tension and bring about calmness.[/cs_text][/cs_column][cs_column fade=”false” fade_animation=”in” fade_animation_offset=”45px” fade_duration=”750″ type=”1/3″ style=”padding: 0px;”][x_image type=”none” src=”https://jane-osborne.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/inidan-head-2.jpg” alt=”” link=”false” href=”#” title=”” target=”” info=”none” info_place=”top” info_trigger=”hover” info_content=””][/cs_column][/cs_row][/cs_section][/cs_content]

Using introspective hypnosis, uncover the mysteries that may lie behind your physical and mental issues. Uncover the unique essence within each of us that goes deeper than our personalities. 

Releasing old patterns and thought forms brings you back into alignment. Awaken your soul, encourage your awareness and protect your boundaries in particular situations. 

I work one to one or in groups and offer sessions online via zoom and Whatsapp. 

Understanding the past, healing the trauma in a safe environment, releasing pain, it is all part of the journey.

Releasing Attachments and Shadows 
Many people feel that there is something holding them back- but they are not sure what it is. Repetitive behaviours, irrational fears and phobias, emotional paralysis, and unexplained illnesses can all be manifestations of attachments and shadows – events and encounters from the past which continue to haunt us. 

My regressions can target and uncover these attachments and shadows and  help you to understand them, enabling you  to let them go, thereby healing past traumas. 

Are you ready for your Journey? 


There is no way of knowing what you will experience during regression therapy.

People’s experiences can be very different. Some people may see glimpses of several past lives, whilst others may delve into one life in more detail, unearthing repressed memories that no longer serve them.

You may have been described by friends as an old soul or feel you have lived before. Some people can visit a place for the first time, yet instantly feel that it is familiar. Others speak of meeting someone for the first time yet feel as if they have known them all their lives.

A sound, smell, dream, or reaction to a situation can trigger memories of a past life experience. The smell of a perfume that your mother wore.

Some clients talk of souls that have chosen to reincarnate together such as partners, siblings, or friends to carry out tasks. An example would be a daughter who acts like the mother of the family or a strong connection with a relative who may have been your brother in a past life.

Some people may try past life regression out of curiosity, to see who they were in the past.

Others are in search of a path for personal growth and healing. Both are equally valid reasons for embarking on this therapy.

If you are feeling stuck in certain ways of thinking, feelings and behaviours, hypnotherapy can help enormously. It assists you in reframing negative thoughts and behaviours and encourages you to understand the reasons for this. It can help tip the feeling of loss upside down and allow you to view it in a positive way as you move to a higher understanding of situations. For example, instead of feeling like a relationship was a failure, hypnotherapy can help you see how the relationship helped you learn, understand, grow, and become more compassionate.

You hold the key to release yourself from past trauma, dreams and attachments from past lives locked in your memory. You will see things from a different perspective and realise you are more than what you see .
Opening the doors to past life records and working with them helps to release the chains of the past.  

As a client, you are fully awake and aware of everything going on around you. When I ask you a question, you have control of your mouth and body and express through words, what you are sensing (feeling, seeing hearing, knowing), what you are experiencing in your memory or what feels like your “imagination”.


To traverse through these memories, we discuss the issues that you would like to address at the beginning of the session.During my hypnosis sessions, there may be times when loved ones, lost souls, extra-terrestrials, or other beings have a message for my clients. You may just be curious but for those looking deeper for answers – there is soul work to do.
