Indian head in york

Derived from the Ayurvedic tradition, this massage focuses on the head, face, shoulders and neck. "Through a variety of different techniques including key pressure point, the massage works to release any blocked negative energy in the body that may be manifesting itself as disease or injury in any one of the seven Chakras (energy centres) of the body. It does so by applying pressure to certain points on the neck, shoulders, head and face that correspond to each Chakra (which is a similar approach to that of reflexology). This unblocks the Chakras, and allows for a free flow of energy around the body, restoring the individual to optimum health and feelings of wellbeing."

This treatment is performed by Ana.

"I have met Ana on 5 separate occasions now for Indian Head Massages. Each massage has been slightly different depending on how I am feeling that day and what Ana felt might help. On one of the occasions I was suffering with a migraine so Ana concentrated on the area that I was feeling the pain. My migraine disappeared as a result which was brilliant. I asked Ana once about the warmth in her hands as I could really feel a warm energy coming through her hands onto me, as if there was some sort of healing energy within her. Ana is brilliant. A really lovely person and very experienced, insightful and skilled at what she does. I can't recommend her enough." Kirstie N. 20/05/16
