Head, Neck & shoulder Massage
This relaxing head massage is part of a tradition in India between family members and our word 'shampoo' comes from the Hindi word 'champi' which means 'head massage'. Although originally restricted to the head and hair, Jan's techniques can include the neck, shoulders, upper arms and face, as these are common areas where people hold their tension. Jan's Head Massage involves working with a firm and gentle rhythm to promote a calm and relaxed state, reducing stiff shoulders, eyestrain, headaches and tight neck. People also report a complete feeling of relaxation throughout their whole body. The massage is received sitting in a chair and takes about 30-40 minutes. No oils are used and no clothes are removed. It's a great way to let go of tension, especially when very little time is availab.le to you.
