Indian Head Massage

Indian Head Massage

Indian Head Massage is a non-invasive form of massage, which involves the shoulders, neck, head, face and scalp. The aim is to release the stress that’s accumulated in the tissues, muscles and joints and it represents a de-stressing programme for the whole body. You can even keep your clothes on, if you prefer, for this wonderfully relaxing therapy.

Indian Head Massage is also known as Champissage (this may be a portmanteau of 'chāmpi', the Hindi term for ‘the practice’, and ‘massage’). Based around the Ayurvedic system of healing (which has been practiced in India for over a thousand years) Indian families have benefited from relaxation and healing on a daily basis through the wide practice of Indian Head Massage.

During the treatment, the shoulders, neck, head, face and scalp are massaged with the purpose of manipulating energy channels. When energy doesn’t flow properly, it builds up, leading to common ailments such as stress, pains and aches, and even baldness or hair loss. The aim of Indian Head Massage is to clear any blocks in these energy channels that may lead to a build-up of negative energy, thus preventing such ailments.

Indian Head Massage (or Champissage) is, now, widely practiced all over Europe after being brought to the west by Narendra Mehta in the 1970s.
