Indian Head Massage

July 18, 2015

Rooted in the ancient Indian healing system of Ayurveda, Indian Head Massage works on the belief that ailments are caused by blockages in the energy flow around the body; massage helps clear blockages, returning the body to a state of health.

HelenHelen began her training at Shepton Mallet Adult Learning in 2002 and completed her training in 2006. Helen has always had an interest in holistic therapy and thinks that this probably started when she was a child mixing flower petals in her parent’s garden!

Helen is experienced in working with people with cancer and as well as working at Neal’s Yard Remedies Helen is also a member of the therapy team and RNID Poolemead in Bath providing massage and aromatherapy treatments for deaf and deaf/blind adults with additional learning difficulties.

Helen finds all areas of her work extremely rewarding and – as she puts it – finally found out what she wanted to do when she left school 20 years after she had left!

I have been working as a Complementary Therapist for 8 years. Since I was a child I have always felt a deep infinity with nature which sparked my interest in Holistic Therapies. I look to natural forms of healing as way of treating mind, body and spirit , which with all the day to day stresses of modern life can become out of balance, creating tension and illness , both physically and mentally in ourselves.
I am trained in a wide range of therapies such as Aromatherapy, Reflexology, Deep Tissue Massage, Indian Head Massage, Hot Stone Massage and  Seated Acupressure as well as Spa treatments such as Scrubs , Body Wraps and Facials.
Many of these therapies originated in the Far East thousands of years ago and their roots can be found in Ayurvedic and  Chinese traditions. They treat the person as a whole rather than the isolated symptoms. Massage and reflexology not only relax the body and mind, but boost the immune system, release natural endorphins that can combat depression and anxiety, aid lymphatic drainage and blood circulation, tone the muscles, and release blockages in the energy channels  resulting in increased vitality and energy.
I believe the more we listen to our body’s messages the more it responds with increased health and vitality. We all deserve a bit of time out for ourselves to relax, switch off and recuperate in an environment where we can feel tranquil and safe. Holistic Therapies are to me a stepping stone on the pathway to self love, self awareness and spiritual development, where the needs of our body , mind and spirit are nurtured as a whole.

“Central to my approach is a warm, nurturing touch rooted in a sensitive and responsive connection between us.  Although every client is unique there are universal human needs which I am attuned to throughout the treatment.
The Siddha Marmani Massage (Marma Point Massage) is a relaxing remedy rarely found outside of India; due, in part, to the protected Siddha lineage it hails from. The Siddha System is the oldest traditional treatment system in the world and deeply guarded. I hold my training in great esteem and feel honoured to have learnt this practice under an indian teacher who worked for many years to gain the respect and trust of her master-teacher so that she too could share this powerful treatment with her students. Each body contains 107 ‘marma points’ and the systematic stimulation of each; interspersed with varied flowing strokes can facilitate and accelerate the systems natural healing capabilities.
Alongside and sometimes combined with reiki energy and the specialised Indian head; neck and upper back massage, my offering is balancing, thorough and deep and addresses all manner of weaknesses, ailments, discomforts and emotional-needs. If you want to try something different; you won’t look back. One client described the treatment as “like a tune-up” ”.

Keiko KishimotoSince I first trained as a holistic therapist, I have constantly updated my skill and knowledge.  Now I offer a wide range of holistic treatments and, depending on your needs or conditions I carefully choose your treatment plan with you. All my treatments are tailor made to ensure you have a truly holistic experience.

I use combinations of different techniques for my massages which allow me to range from a firm pressure to a delicate touch, which helps to release the tension seated in any depth of tissue.
I have an extensive knowledge of aromatherapy and use this for my treatments. Aromatherapy and holistic treatments work wonderfully together and I take pride in this combination which helps not only reduce physical problems but may also bring emotional relief as well. My treatments are always based on ‘de-stressing’ and you can feel both physically and mentally lighter after my treatment.

Maternity and gynaecological care also feature heavily in my range of treatments. My extensive training in this field brings a deep understanding of the needs of women and enables me to extend my treatments to help with hormonal, physical and emotional changes for any stages of women’s life.
