Indian Head Massage incorporates the manipulation and massage of the soft tissues of the face, neck, shoulders, upper back and arms as well, and it is a wonderfully relaxing therapy.
Indian head massage originates in India and is based on an ancient Ayurvedic healing system practised there for over 1000 years. The procedure’s name comes from the Hindi word “champi ied”, translated as “hair-washing” and suggesting the initial significance and role of this technique.
The therapist uses a range of different massage pressures and rhythms to stimulate these areas and help balance natural energies and clear any localised areas of negativity. There are many benefits e.g. higher levels of alertness and concentration and relief from tension headaches and eyestrain.
However Indian Head Massage is not just physical; it works on an emotional level also calming the spirit promoting relaxation and relieving stress.
A typical massage can last up to 45 minutes.
