Indian Head Massage

What is Indian Head Massage?

Indian Head Massage, also known as Champissage, has been practiced in India for over 1,000 years. It is a form of massage that focuses on the face, head, neck, shoulders and upper arms which are important energy centers within the body where tension accumulates resulting in stiff necks and shoulders, as well as headaches.

A firm and gentle rhythm is used to release blockages and relieve tension and pain. This form of massage combines physical massage with a more subtle for of energy balancing which affects a person’s energy centers. This Ayurvedic element of Chakra energy-balancing focuses on the three higher chakras and has a powerful effect and can bring the energy of the whole body back into balance crating a deep sense of peace, calm and well-being.

A full session lasts 30 minutes and is done with your fully-clothed client in a seated position, making this form of massage extremely portable and accessible by all.
