What can I expect During an Angel Reiki Session?

When you arrive, we will sit and chat together for a short while. I will gather a few personal details from you and we will discuss any concerns or health issues, and I can answer any questions you may have. However, unlike some therapies I offer, Angel Reiki is usually safe for anyone to receive.

After that we will go through to a very calming and tranquil treatment room. You will receive the Angel Reiki fully clothed whilst lying on a treatment couch. However, Reiki can also be given seated in a chair if mobility issues don’t allow you to lie on the couch. I will usually have some incense burning and some relaxing music playing ,and you can close your eyes and totally relax. There is nothing you will have to do.

During the treatment I will work partly hands on and hands off. However, if you would prefer me to work totally hands off I am happy to do so. During a treatment you may feel a lot of heat coming off of my hands as the energy healing takes place. You may also sometimes sense my hands remaining on a certain chakra when you know they have moved to another point. This is not at all unusual. You may also be aware of me moving around the couch during the healing but you will know at the end of it that I have finished because I will touch you gently on the shoulder.

Indian Head Massage

Indian Head Massage is a massage technique that is based on old Ayurvedic practices. Traditionally it was used in Indian homes by wives and mothers. It has played an important part in their daily lives for over a thousand years, being used on a daily basis for relaxation, healing and to relieve tension. Oils would be used which helped with conditioning hair and the choice of oils would be made according to the season. The techniques were passed from generation to generation.  It was given the name ‘Champissage’ or ‘Champi’, which is where we get our modern term ‘Shampoo’ from

When coming for a treatment with me, the first thing is that you are getting out of a busy and often very stressful environment so my treatment rooms offer you the opportunity to escape just for a while into a space that is just for you.

After that the Indian Head Massage treatment takes over. It relaxes the mind and works on the upper chakras – the crown, the brow, the throat chakra and the heart chakra which helps clear the blockages which helps to increase energy flows and allows the body to heal. As our chakras work from top to bottom as we clear the upper chakras healing will flow to the lower chakras and unblock them.

Narendra Mehta was born in Gujarat in 1947 and brought up in Mumbai, India. He travelled to England in the 1970s to study. He was surprised when the Champissage was left out of his visit to the barbers so as he was missing his previously regular massages so went to a massage therapist. But whilst he received a full body massage, his head was left untouched. So in 1978 he returned to India to study Champissage and travelled around India learning different techniques. From this knowledge he put together his own routine for an Indian Head Massage and returned to England where4 began to introduce what we know as Indian Head Massage. In an interview he once said:

“My object is my hands, because, being blind, I see with my hands and I work with my hands. Instead of two eyes, I’ve got ten eyes – my ten fingers are my eyes. My profession is based on the skill of my hands, and the health of my hands.”

He opened his clinic, the London Centre of Indian Champissage (head massage) in 1990.

Routines taught are based on Narendra Mehta’s massage although there is some variation. For me, each Indian Head Massage is slightly different as I work intuitively and will provide what I feel my client needs.
