Indian Head Massage
The art of Indian Head Massage originated in Ayurveda, an ancient Indian system of medicine that has been practiced for thousands of years. Indian Head Massage, also known as Champissage, is a form of relaxation massage that focuses on the face, head, neck, shoulders, upper back and upper arms which are important energy centers within the body. It is very relaxing and has a balancing effect on the recipient as it helps them to release stress and tension creating a sense of peace and well-being.
What to expect during your Indian Head Massage
The session will start seated in a chair (with an optional hot oil treatment for the scalp). While seated I will work the upper back, shoulders, arms, neck and scalp. I will then transition you to the massage table, inviting you to fully relax into the experience while I do additional work on the neck, shoulders, scalp and arms.

What to wear for the Indian Head Massage
For men: If one is comfortable without a shirt that is the best option, as the oil I use is great for both the skin, scalp and hair.
For women: An off the shoulder top (tube top) or tank top with straps that can be comfortably adjusted along the shoulders is ideal. I have a few items available for clients as well.
I work a lot on the upper back, shoulders and neck, so the less movement of the clothing and material thickness, the better the results and overall experience.
