Indian Head Massage (Champissage) is derived from the ancient Ayurvedic healing system and is a deeply relaxing massage given to the upper back, shoulders, upper arms, neck, scalp and face. It will help calm, de-stress, revitalize and uplift your spirits while relaxing tense muscles and easing stiffness.
Practised in India for over a thousand years, Indian head massage acts on a physical, mental and subtle level by stimulating three of the major energy centres of the human body in the brow, the crown and the throat. It is believed this helps to maintain the important balance of energy within the body, which in turn promotes a sense of well-being, positive energy and relaxation.
Indian Head Massage is perfect for you if you would like time to relax and de-stress.
If you are new to “hands-on” therapy it can be a great introduction, especially for those who do not wish to undress.
The positive benefits can be achieved in a short space of time and are suited to those with busy schedules.
It does not diagnose or cure but it aims to promote the mental and physical conditions necessary to foster positive good health and prevent ill health.
Although there is no scientific support for any claims of medical benefit from this technique the reported conditions it can help are:
The treatment takes place either seated or lying on a treatment table and will last between 30-45 minutes.
You may undress or choose to remain clothed and will therefore, have the options of oil or cream
The only thing left is to relax and enjoy your massage.
