History of Indian Head Massage

Indian Head Massage (or champissage) is based on the ancient Ayurvedic healing system passed down from generation to generation within ancient India. It is a Holistic Therapy incorporating Mind, Body and Spirit. The treatment has been practiced in India for over a thousand years, originally to keep hair in beautiful condition by stimulating blood flow to the scalp, thus nourishing the hair roots.

Originally it was almost exclusively concerned with massage of the head and hair follicles, although over time it has developed to incorporate massage and manipulation of the face, scalp, neck, upper back, shoulders and upper arms.
