Also known as 'Champissage' (the traditional Hindi term), this wonderful balancing treatment is based on ancient Ayurvedic techniques, the Indian head massage is a fantastic treatment for balancing the chakras of the body and encouraging healthy hair growth. Ayurvedic medicine is a system of traditional Indian medicine dating back to the 3rd century AD.
In a champissage session the head, face, neck and shoulders are massaged with the purpose of manipulating energy to clear blockages in the energy channels of the body (known as the chakras) It is believed that when the energy channels of the body are blocked the negative energy can cause ailments and illness. A variety of massage movements are used to relieve tension, stimulate circulation and restore the energy flow throughout the body.
Massage can be carried out over clothes, with or without oils dependent on what you want. We start with a gentle inhalation exercise to balance the chakras before continuing on with the massage.
Facial acupressure can be added onto this treatment or indeed booked independently as a treatment in itself; great for encouraging lymphatic flow and reducing puffiness!
Why not add an Indian head massage onto your body treatment for the ultimate in relaxation?
