Indian Head Massage

Indian Head Massage would appear to be a simple massage but it incorporates aspects of a variety of different disciplines. It works on the upper back, neck, head and face. During the session other disciplines are incorporated such as kinesiology, acupuncture and reiki as well as the usual benefits of massage.

Massage is an ancient healing art that probably developed from when man touched his mate for comfort. There have been records of massage used therapeutically in India for at least 4000 years and is still part of every day family life, from birth to old age. Indian Head Massage was developed by barbers and used by barbers and for generally grooming hair.

It was brought to the UK by Narendra Mehta who started a school in 1991 called the 'London School of Champissage'. This comes from the Hindi word 'champi', meaning head massage. Our own word 'shampoo', which means 'to wash and rub the scalp', comes from the Hindi word 'capna', also a derivative from the same word, which relates directly to the stimulating head massage given by Indian barbers.

Now the basic Indian Head Massage in the West has been extended to include the neck, shoulders and arms. As it is based on the Indian massage system it naturally includes working on the chakra system and acupuncture points. Although not part of the original Indian system, there are also areas covered that relate to kinesiology techniques. You could even include a shortened hand reflexology sequence. The combination of techniques has to lead to a comprehensive healing massage that is easy to perform at any time.
