Indian Head Massage
Indian Head Massage or Champissage is based on the ancient Indian Ayurvedic healing system. It has been practiced in India for over a thousand years. Massaging the scalp stimulates the flow of blood to the follicles, improving the supply of nutrients needed for healthy hair growth. Today the common cause of poor blood flow is stress generated muscle tension, by helping dispel such tension, head massage not only proves an invaluable treatment but helps relieve stress linked problems like headaches, eye strain, neck and shoulder stiffness.
How does it work?
The head, neck and shoulders are important energy centers within your body, if you are stressed or anxious, tension tends to accumulate. Indian Head Massage involves working with a strong, but gentle rhythm helping to unknot blockages and release tension, this effect is not just physical, it also works on an emotional level, calming the spirit, promoting relaxation and relieving stress.
