Indian Head Massage has evolved from the traditional Indian Ayurvedic art of Champi. Today, treatment includes massage on the head, neck, upper back, shoulders and arms in order to rebalance the body’s vital energy. It can be particularly beneﬁcial in alleviating stress, tension, headaches and fatigue.
An Indian head massage usually lasts around 30-45 minutes. You’ll be invited to take a seat and relax on a low-backed chair so that our practitioner will have the right massage accessibility. You can choose to have a treatment involving oils, in which case upper clothing can be removed and a large soft towel will be draped round you for warmth and protection. If no oil is preferred, you may remain fully clothed, ideally in a lightweight t-shirt.
Your therapist will start by massaging your back and neck, working deeply on the muscles and pressure points that help the muscles to relax. They will then move on to massage the scalp area to improve your circulation.
The treatment ends with a soothing face massage including pressure points and draining techniques to help ease headaches and relieve sinus problems.
To gain maximum beneﬁt from your Indian Head Massage treatment, try to rest afterwards as this helps your body’s natural healing process.
Our therapist will speak to you before performing any treatment to check your medical history and make sure this type of massage is suitable for you.
