What is Indian Head Massage

Indian head massage is an incredibly soothing massage, which releases harmful stores of built up negative energy. Also known as Champissage (possibly a portmanteau of chāmpi, the Hindi term for the practice, and massage) Indian head massage is based on old Ayurvedic techniques involving work on the shoulders, neck, scalp and face. A variety of massage movements are used to relieve tension, stimulate circulation and restore joint movement. Ayurvedic medicine is a system of traditional Indian medicine dating back to the 3rd century AD.

Champissage massage techniques are based on ancient knowledge regarding the manipulation of energy channels. Indian head massage is intended to clear blockages in these energy channels which could cause a build-up of negative energy which in turn can result in health problems such as stress, muscle pain, aches and nausea. Indian head massage was brought to the West by Narendra Mehta in the 1970s and is now a popular form of alternative treatment as well as a luxurious way to relax and ease built up tensions from the day to day stress of urban living.
