Indian Head Massage is a treatment that may help ease headaches, neck tension and may also help the circulation and aid lymphatic drainage. It induces relaxation making it helpful for stress related conditions.
The treatment is carried out over light clothing with the client sitting comfortably in a chair, unless essential oils are required, resulting in the neck and shoulders being uncovered.
What is Indian Head Massage?
Indian Head Massage has been a family tradition in the Asian continents for over a thousand Years. It is called 'champissage' (the Hindi word for head massage).
Narendra Mehta grew up in India where massage was part of his life. He came to England in the 1970's to train as a physical therapist and was dismayed to discover that not only was this type of massage not generally practised, but that the head was virtually ignored by the other therapies he was learning and practising (later becoming a qualified Osteopath, Masseur and Reflexologist). He returned to India in 1978 to study and practice 'champissage' and, upon returning to England, he began to perfect a sequence of movements to include the upper back, neck, shoulders . This treatment made its debut at the 1981 Mind, Body and Spirit Exhibition at Olympia London, where almost 180 people experienced the benefits of 'champissage', now widely known as Indian Head, Neck and Shoulder Massage.
The beauty of this treatment is that other techniques may be added, as massage is an individual treatment, and no two people are the same!
