Indian head massage, also known as champissage, is known to release stress, and aches/ pains that have accumulated in the muscles and joints of the face, head, neck and shoulders.
Indian head massage works within Ayurveda, the ancient Indian medicine system that places emphasis on balancing the human body by treating its energy centres or chakras. It is believed these centres can become blocked, resulting in disharmony in a person’s physical, emotional and spiritual plains.
When performing Indian head massage, I will use firm gentle rhythmic Ayurvedic and Swedish massage techniques, not only to manipulate the soft tissues, but also to target acupressure or Marma points in your head, shoulders and neck. This will unblock relevant chakra points and bring the body back into balance.
