'Positive Life - Positive Thinking - Positive Health'
Michelle Savin-Jones has a keen interest in using Essential Oils to benefit the wellbeing of her clients, in particular helping to alleviate the pain and stress of those living with life limiting conditions. Indian Head Massage, also known as Champissage, is based on the ancient Hindu system of Ayurveda (translated as the science of life) which has been practised in India for thousands of years. These techniques are used at weddings and births, and it is even common for new babies to receive head massage.
The massage is in itself, a very pleasant and relaxing experience. But in addition to the physical benefits, the use of acupressure massage on the head, face, neck and shoulders aims to rebalance the body’s energy, promoting wellbeing on an emotional level. Indian Head Massage has also been known to have a positive impact on hair and scalp condition due to the stimulation of hair follicles, which can increase the production of natural hair oil.
The massage treatment lasts for 30 minutes and is performed seated and fully-clothed (light, loose fitting clothing is advisable). A treatment begins at the back of the neck and shoulders, as this is where we tend to hold a lot of our tension. Michelle will then move upwards to the head and scalp, finishing with a gentle face massage using an aromatherapy blend.
In addition to being extremely relaxing, Indian Head massage can also help with the following:
Recurring headaches, migraines and back/neck pain
Sleeplessness & insomnia
Anxiety & depression
General energy Levels
As a holistic practitioner, Michelle cannot diagnose or prescribe – instead will look at supporting your wellbeing as a whole person. Everyone is different so it is impossible to know how an individual will react to a treatment. Most people will notice that they feel very relaxed, will sleep better and have an improved mood. Occasionally people report a mild headache, feeling tired or needing to go to the toilet more often. These are all normal reactions and should pass in 24 - 48 hours as part of the healing process.
