treatmentWhat is Indian Head Massage - Champissage?

Champissage™ is a massage technique which focuses on the head, face, and neck. It is derived from the tradition of Ayurvedic medicine in India, where bodywork on the head and neck is a common part of medical treatment and daily maintenance of well-being. The Champissage™ technique is trademarked, with massage therapists learning the style from certified instructors; it is also sometimes offered by hair professionals.

This massage technique was known as Indian Head Massage when it was first brought to the West in the 1970s by Narendra Mehta. Mehta studied Ayurveda in India, looking at the various practices and techniques used to treat disease and promote good health, and he developed Champissage™ to cater to Western tastes, integrating some of the principles of Ayurveda into a massage style which would be comfortable for Europeans and Americans.

In theory, Champissage™ is supposed to balance the flow of energy around the head, promoting balance and well being. Head massage is also beneficial for scalp circulation and the reduction of stress, so even if people don't believe in the idea of manipulating the body's energy fields, they might still benefit from a Champissage™ session. The massage is meant to be deeply relaxing and calming, and it is often offered at spas as a pampering treat.

In a Champissage™ session, the client sits upright in a chair, fully clothed, and the massage therapist works around the client's head. No oils or creams are used, and the massage is performed primarily with the fingers; some therapists may offer a version with essential oils which is not technically Champissage™, although it can be relaxing.

For people who are interested in experiencing Champissage™, the best way to find a practitioner is to look for practitioners in your area. Calling around to spas and massage studios and asking about head massage is also an option, as some therapists do not use the term Champissage™ either because they think that people may not recognize it, or because they have not been formally certified. Champissage™ is suitable for people of all ages and levels of physical condition, since it is a gentle, non-invasive form of massage therapy.

Indian Head Massage (Champissage) Review

By Narendra Mehta

Indian Head Massage can help to lift you out of the hustle and bustle of everyday stressful living. The techniques used are based on the ancient Ayurvedic Healing System. Indian Head Massage has been practised in India for over a thousand years. It was originally used by women who found it helped to keep their long hair thick, healthy and in beautiful condition.

Champissage uses simple techniques that can be learned through an appropriate course. It is a wonderfully relaxing therapy. It does not require the need to undress or the use of oils. You can enjoy this very special massage in the office, at home, in the clinic or in fact anywhere there is a chair.

Champissage provides relief from a number of ailments including:

  • Tension headaches
  • Eyestrain
  • Aches and pains in the neck and shoulder area
  • Insomnia
  • Many other stress and work related symptoms

Those who depend on computers in the office or at home, may find that Champissage is the ideal way to release all tension, strains and frustrations that can build up after hours in front of a screen.

Champissage brings with it other benefits:

  • Encourages hair growth
  • Soothes and Comforts
  • Re-balances your energy flow
  • Promotes a deep sense of peace, calm and tranquility

During a session of Champissage the head, neck and shoulders - all energy centres where tension is most likely to accumulate - are gently, firmly and rhythmically massaged until the pressure begins simply to melt away. You can depend on Champissage to effectively ease that feeling of pressure which can so easily increase throughout the day. This de-stressing massage, received before an important meeting, interview or exam, leaves you feeling relaxed yet alert and able to produce your best work without feeling tense or tired. It is superb for imparting a feeling of well-being before any social occasion.

A session normally takes between 20 and 30 minutes. There is a specially adapted, shorter version for busy office workers.
