Also known as Champissage, Indian Head Massage is an alternative medicine massage which concentrates on the head, neck, face and head.
Traditionally practiced with the client sat on a chair the treatment can be done with or without oil. Indian Head Massage is a vigorous and energising treatment which increases the blood circulation to the head. This helps conditions such as headaches, jaw ache, eyestrain, hair loss , fatigue, sinusistis and a host of other ailments.
It is my belief that if you have regular upper body treatments you will see your energy levels improve and will generally feel calmer and more balanced as Indian Head Massage targets areas affected by mental and emotional stress.
In western culture today we spend much of our time in our heads so this treatment can really help to rid the mind of anxiety and promotes clear thinking.
The massage usually begins with the upper back where a combination of stretching, deep massage and frictions is used to relax the muscles and to create energy within the muscles. Moving through the shoulders then working on the neck which is the main site where headaches manifest, massaging the neck improves celebral spinal fluid circulation which helps to relieve tension. Moving up to the scalp techniques are used to stimulate, relax and revive the whole head, increasing circulation and promoting healthy hair. To end the treatment a massage to the face is included which will help skin tone, sinus and jaw pain.
