Indian Head Massage - Ancient Ayurvedic Treatment

Indian head massage is also known as “champissage”, is a treatment that focuses on massaging acupressure points along the head, neck, and shoulders, often using circular massage strokes to improve hair and scalp condition.
Origination from the Indian ancient medicine system called Ayurveda, (translated as the ‘science of life’), whereby it is believed that the mind and body are intricately connected and thus can influence one another. Through this theory, it is understood that this massage can not only improve physical well-being, but it can also improve mental and emotional wellness too.
Indian Head massage is not confined to the physical, it reaches into the realm of the mind and spirit as well.  We are an intricate web of interconnected energies, through the gentle manipulation of pressure points and energy centres, the massage encourages the free flow of prana (life force energy) throughout your body.  This release can lead to a deep sense of emotional equilibrium and rejuvenation.
This treatment requires no oils or equipment, making it a very accessible treatment, perfect for newcomers to massage. It is usually done while seated and through light clothing.
A typical treatment, usually starts with the therapist working on the shoulders, focussing upon this area especially as it often holds a lot of tension. The upper back may also be massaged working around the shoulder blade. Following this, flowing motions will move up the neck massaging and stretching to relieve any stress and tension. Finally, the scalp is then massaged along the acupressure points on the head, followed up by the forehead and the area around the eyes. The upper back and arms can also be massaged depending on the techniques being used.
