This therapy is a traditional Indian technique dating back thousands of years. Indian head massage (otherwise known as Champissage originated from the Hindu word ‘Champi’) has become very popular in the western world. It is based on the ancient Ayurvedic form of healing. It specifically works with the upper three chakras: vishuddha, ajna, and sahasrara, and can be used for physical harmony, healing, energy and relaxation. Indian women used this form of massage on their hair and applied oils for conditioning. Indian barbers also used this massage as part of their services.
The indian head massage technique has been extended to incorporate other parts of the upper body that suffer from stress and tension: neck, upper arms and shoulders. This treatment is wonderfully relaxing. The therapy is used to tap into the body’s natural energy channels and clear any blockages. The aim is to clear any negative energy within the body to improve overall health. It is an excellent method to relieve stress, reduce headaches and muscular pains & aches. It is also beneficial in cases of insomnia. Overall, it can induce a growing feeling of calm and deep relaxation throughout the body.
