Indian Head Massage

Indian-HeadThe art of Indian Head Massage (also known as “champissage”) originated in Ayurveda, an ancient Indian system of medicine that has been practiced for thousands of years.  The aim of Indian head massage is to release the stress that has accumulated in the tissues, muscles and joints of the head, face, neck and shoulders. It helps to increase joint mobility and flexibility in the neck and shoulders, improves blood circulation, frees knots of muscular tension and relaxes connective tissue.  It has a balancing effect on the recipient as it helps to release stress and tension, creating a sense of peace and well-being.

Because this form of massage is done over the clothing in a seated position it can be done virtually anywhere and at any time.
