Indian Head Massage

Indian head massage lasts for thirty minutes with the client seated and fully clothed. Also known as Champissage, this form of massage was brought to the West by Narendra Mehta in the 1970s. In India, massage has traditionally always be a big part of family life. In the Western world, however, where touch is not quite as acceptable, most people find that one of the first places they experience tension is in their shoulders. Indian head massage recognises this and allows the recipient to relax so that their breathing becomes deeper and more oxygen is supplied to the body. The practitioner starts the massage on the shoulders and goes on to cover the arms, neck, head and face.
