Brighton Magazine (BM): What does Indian Head Massage do?

Yasmin Vali (YV): It focuses on the upper back, neck, arms, head and face. The chakras that are being worked on in this massage are the top three chakras: crown, brow and throat. Soothing oils can be used to enhance the effect of the message.

BM: What is the history of Indian Head Massage?

YV: It has been practiced in India for over 1,000 years and comes from a tradition of family grooming. The techniques involved have been passed down from generation to generation, following two paths of development: women developed one part of the massage to keep their hair strong; barbers (men) developed the other part to invigorate the scalp and head. These two components, along with a few other techniques, make up the modern-day version of Indian Head Massage that I use in Brighton.

BM: You mentioned how Indian Head Massage works on the chakras. What effect does this have?

YV: It makes you relaxed and it revitalises the whole body. You often feel alert after the treatment, unlike other massages which tend to make you feel sleepy.

BM: Anything else?

YV: The deep level of relaxation can help with insomnia. And I find the treatment relieves muscle tension, aches, stress, depression, anxiety, headaches and sinus problems. In fact you can read some of the strories of my clients by reading their Indian Head Massage testimonials on my website.

YV: I was just remembering something else Andy. Would you believe that Indian Head Massage also improves and promotes hair growth!

Moving swiftly on...... Yasmin explained a full session of Indian Head Massage usually lasts forty minutes. A first session will include a consultation which increases the treatment"s duration to an hour.

If you"d like to learn more about what Indian head massage can do for you, then contact Yasmin of Holistic Interventions Brighton for a session.

Brix & The Extricated has – in the words of an old Fall lyric – something of a “track record”. 

Festival 23, the world's only three-day celebration of Discordian counter-culture, took place outside Sheffield in July 2016 and was a huge success, with contributions from comics legend Alan Moore, the KLF's Jimmy Cauty, DJs Greg Wilson and Richard Norris.

Forged out of the ashes of the Brit-pop explosion, Starsailor emerged onto the music scene in the early 2000s, gaining success and spearheading a new wave of English guitar bands.

The new Attenborough Centre for the Creative Arts autumn 2017 season brings to the city a rich array of artists, makers, creators and thinkers from both local and international companies and studios, in a season of performance, music, dance, film, visual art, discussion & debate.

Brighton Dome is set to host a series of Spectrum live events for the autumn season, showcasing some of Brighton's best emerging talent from across the city, at The Basement, Brighton Youth Centre and Brighton Museum.

It's 1988 and London is partying hard under the spectre of AIDS, the scrutiny of the press and the promise of a summer of love.

It was with great excitement that I headed back to the Brighthelm Centre for Riptide: Returns, the second show from Brighton's new wrestling company. 

Brighton's unique, historic racecourse is the venue for an on-going series of live music events with spectacular views across the south coast, with a line-up boasting Human League, Marc Almond, Hacienda Classical with Groove Armada and Stereo MCs.

Pete Howells returns with his second album, Dead Cat Bounce.

Tom Robinson, the gay musician and long time activist, has performed his song Glad to be Gay with updated lyrics to mark the 50th anniversary of the partial decriminalisation of homosexuality in England and Wales.

England isn't a half-bad country, right? It's got some pretty beautiful places and some awesome people in it, but like many other parts of the world over the past year or two, it just seems to be getting hit by more and more bad things, and this obviously dominates the headlines.
