Indian Head Massage

An Ayurvedic treatment

Indian head massage is so much more than a back massage or head massage! This is an Ayurvedic treatment which dates back over a thousand years. Massage has a long-standing history in Indian cultures with traditions and techniques being passed down through family members. It is very common for them to give and receive daily head massages.

Traditionally done in a seated position, we modify your treatment at Calm Beauty so that you are laying down comfortably as you would for a back massage. Indian head massage techniques are then used. Your back will be warmed up with rhythmic sweeping strokes. Then, with deeper pressure, but always to your comfort level, your therapist will stretch out the muscles on either side of your spine, up and across your shoulders, down into your arms, and along your neck. This will help to loosen any areas of tightness and tension, reducing aches and pains.

Your massage will continue from your neck up into your scalp. Eventually, you will be asked to turn over so that your scalp massage can continue to the front of your head before moving down to your face. Scalp and facial massage can be incredibly relaxing and calming, slowing down minds full of whirling thoughts. Tightness and tension along the forehead, cheeks and jaw can be eased which can help with teeth grinding or clenching and headaches.

Get your desired effect

Overall, Indian head massage can be very calming or quite energising.

This treatment benefits areas where there can be a build-up of high levels of stress and tension. This massage can have both an uplifting and relaxing effect on the nervous system. Indian head massage can be particularly effective if you suffer from headaches, migraines or sinusitis.

Other benefits include:

  • relaxation and stress relief,
  • uplifting,
  • aids postural problems,
  • improves hair and scalp conditions,
  • increases vascular/lymphatic circulation,
  • releases endorphins,
  • restores energy to the body,
  • activates the parasympathetic nervous system, helping the body relax naturally,
  • decreases the sympathetic nervous system response, which activates our “fight or flight” reactions

Calm Beauty is my new place-to-go for massages. The ladies are amazing with excellent technical skills and beyond friendly services! I highly recommend all of the massage therapists: Niamh, Karen and the two Jennys! Treat yourself with some massage or facial 🙂 I'll definitely be back for more treatments.

Amanda S.

I absolutely love going to the ladies at Calm. I have had a massage from each therapist and I can safely say every therapist is fantastic. I am very picky when it comes to massages, and they are the best I've ever had at Calm.

Jacqueline C.

The most soothing, warm and welcoming spot in Dublin. An incredible relief from the general anxiety of the last year.. I genuinely felt lighter and brighter leaving, then when I arrived and it will be the first place I go when it's safe to do so again.


Beautiful space, friendly and professional staff. Floated away. Highly recommend the massage facial combo.
