dc.description.abstractCreating an environment that focuses on individual recovery within an acute inpatient environment can be challenging. To add to the therapeutic nature of a mental health assessment and treatment ward for women, we conducted a pilot of six Indian head massage taster treatments for patients. Feedback was obtained from patients and staff through the questionnaires, observation and verbal feedback. The feedback showed individual positive experiences and that the treatment enhanced experiences of care. These outcomes are being used to explore the benefits of the use of IHM in ward environments. The feedback indicates IHM training for multidisciplinary ward staff would be beneficial. This article reports on the use of a complementary therapy as a component of a ward recovery ethos and an intervention to help with promoting a therapeutic and caring ward environment.;
