Indian Head Massage

History of Indian Head Massage

Indian Head Massage (or champissage) is based on the ancient Ayurvedic healing system passed down from generation to generation within ancient India. It is a holistic therapy incorporating mind, body and spirit. The treatment has been practised in India for over a thousand years, originally to keep hair in beautiful condition by stimulating blood flow to the scalp nourishing the hair roots. More recently the massage has expanded to include face, neck and shoulders.


What does Indian Head Massage do

Indian head massage includes massage of the shoulders, upper arms, neck, scalp, face and ears. It is a wonderfully relaxing therapy that is safe and very effective at relieving aches, pains, stress and rebalancing energy flow to provide deep sense of peace, calm and tranquillity. There is no need to undress to receive the treatment.


Champissage, is a gentle therapy which constitutes a highly effective de-stressing treatment for the whole body. It can help unknot blockages and relieve the build up of tension in the body and mind. The use of oil is optional when massaging the head and scalp, although this can play an important role in improving the lustre and condition of the hair.
