Indian Head Massage

An Introduction to Indian Head Massage:

Indian Head Massage has been used for thousands of years to aid healing and soothe sickness. This ancient art has been adapted to help treat the stresses and strains of modern-day life.

It is a safe, simple and effective therapy that uses a series of massage strokes to treat the area’s most vulnerable to stress – namely the upper back, shoulders, head and neck.

The application of these techniques promotes hair growth, soothes away tension, re-balances energy flow and clears any areas of negativity, thus instilling a sense of relaxation, calmness and well-being as well as providing relief from aches and pains.

What is Indian Head Massage?

Indian Head Massage is a relaxing treatment which, as the name suggests, concentrates on massaging the head. Head and scalp massage can be used alongside simple meditative techniques to provide a simple and effective way to relax.

A Brief History of Indian Head Massage

The Hindi word for head massage is "Champi" and aspects of the treatment have a long tradition in Indian families. Mothers would stroke their daughter's hair to promote its growth and health.

Narendra Mehta - blind from the age of one - grew up in India and head massage was an integral part of his life. He came to England in the 1970s to train as a physical therapist and in 1978 returned to India to study the benefits and practice of champissage, extending it to include neck, shoulders and face. On his return to England, he developed a sequence of movements. There is no right or wrong way and sequence of movements vary from one therapist to another.

How does Indian Head Massage work?

The treatment involves massage, shiatsu and acupressure techniques on upper back, shoulders, arms/hands, neck, scalp and face. This relaxes tense areas but, at the same time, helps to rebalance the energy, clearing any areas of negativity.
