Indian Head Massage*
The art of IHM originated from Ayurveda, the ancient Indian sytem of medicine. 'Champi' is incorporated into the barbers treatment and is widely available on street corners, etc in India. There are of course many different techniques, this also applies in the western world, but in general it is a massage of the scalp, neck, shoulders upper arms and face. It is de-stressing and invigorates the scalp and hair, it helps increase blood circulation to the head, neck and shoulders, which can help stimulate hair growth and improve the skin. It relieves stiffness and helps increase lymphatic flow to get rid of toxins, etc. It can be done with our without oils the client keeps their clothes on, so can be carried out virtually any where.
A treatment normally lasts for 45+ mins £20.00.

Aura and Chakra healing/balancing*
Aura and chakra healing is one of the most profound and fundamental alternative therapies in the field of alternative medicine and holistic health. Energy healing employs spiritual healing methods whcih expand the awaremenss of the energy healer and uses energy, colour, light and crystal healing techniques to catalyse healing in the clients energy field (aura and chakra systems), helping to break free from afflictiions and limitations of body, mind and spirit. It can help to enhance the quality of life for the client.
Various methods are used to test the aura and chakras; but in a 'nutshell', while you are laying comfortably on the couch (or sitting if you prefer this), some nice music is played, the therapist checks for energy levels, blockages, etc, cyrstals are placed on the main chakra points and energy is sent from the therapist, a re-test is done, and then if necessary more crystals, colour and energy is given until the therapist feels they have done all they can in this session.
A session normally lasts 45+ mins £20.00. See diary page for next course and prices.
