Indian Head Massage

Indian Head Massage has been used in Asia for over 5,000 years and works specifically on the area surrounding the head, scalp, face, neck, shoulders and upper back. Indian head massage comes from Ayurveda, an ancient method involving natural therapies, which takes into account mind, body and spirit. 


“Champissage” is a more traditional term for the therapy, the aim is to clear blocks in these energy channels that cause a build-up of negative energy that are purported to cause ailments. The belief is when the energy does not flow properly; negative energy builds up, causing common ailments, including stress and pain. Indian head massage was brought to the west by Narendra Mehta in the early1970s and is now widely used across the whole of Europe.

An Indian head massage usually lasts for approximately 30 minutes although the treatment can be shortened to 15-20 minutes if it takes place in the workplace.

You will be invited to take a seat and relax on a low backed chair. The use of oils is optional using a special blend of essential oils. If oil is used, a towel will be used to ensure your modesty. Alternatively, you can remain fully clothed and not have oil applied to the skin.
