What is Indian Head Massage? An Indian Head massage, also known as Champissage, is where the shoulders, neck, head and face are massaged with the purpose of manipulating energy channels. The goal is to clear blocks in these energy channels that are purported to cause a build-up of negative energy and result in ailments.
The technique releases muscle tension, stimulates circulation and encourages lymphatic drainage. It stretches and mobilises the tissues of the neck and shoulders. This fully oxygenates the cells, improves blood flow to the head and neck, and increases the distribution of nutrients to encourage healing throughout the body. It improves and stimulates scalp circulation which helps to promote texture combined with strength and growth of hair.
What are the benefits? The therapeutic effects of an Indian Head Massage last long after the massage is over. It is the ideal stress-busting treatment for anyone suffering from aching shoulders, a tight neck and headaches, and can help to:
Relieve eyestrain and headaches
Relieve physical and mental fatigue
Improve joint mobility
Relieve stress and muscular tension
As well as being relaxing, it can also be an invigorating and refreshing experience. An Indian Head massage comforts and harmonises the body's natural balance, so helping to promote physical and psychological well-being leaving you with a feeling of peace and tranquility and, above all, relaxation. It is a safe, simple, non-intrusive yet effective therapy and can be carried out through clothes, with or without oil.
