What is Indian Head Massage?

Indian Head Massage which is referred to as Champissage, has been practiced in India for over 1,000 years. The Indian Head Massage focuses on the face, head, neck, shoulders and upper arms. These parts of our body are important energy centers that accumulate tension causing headaches, stiff shoulders and necks. Champissage uses a centuries old rhythm to release stress thus relieving tension and pain. The massage combines physical massage and a subtle form of energy balancing which affects a person’s energy centers. This Ayurvedic element of Chakra energy balancing focuses on the three higher chakras and has a powerful effect and can bring the energy of the whole body back into balance creating a deep sense of peace, calm and well-being.
