What is Indian Head Massage?

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.

How can Indian Head Massage help you?

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.
