Indian Head Massage

Indian Head Massage at Neal's Yard Remedies
Ayurveda, the "Science of Life" is an ancient Indian medical system promoting positive health, beauty and long life. It emphasizes the uniqueness of the individual, aiming to restore balance and inner harmony to mind, body and spirit. Ayurveda recommends the use of massage to improve circulation, expel toxins from the body, relax muscle and nerve fibers and to reduce stress and tension.

Indian women traditionally practiced head massage as part of their grooming to keep their hair in beautiful condition. Barbers also combined haircuts with "champi" (head massage). The tradition was brought to the west by Narendra Mehta, who grew up in India and trained as a Physiotherapist in England in the 1970's.
Disappointed that massage in England did not extend to the head, he formalized techniques for head massage to include the neck, shoulders and upper arms as well as the head. Combining massage with Ayurvedic elements of energy points or chakras, he created a therapy he called Indian Champissage. It is based on acupressure massage and its benefits are felt throughout the body.
  • By relaxing muscle and nerve fibers, it relieves tension, pain and fatigue
  • It increases oxygen supply to the brain, aiding clarity of thought and concentration and relieving mental strain
  • It stimulates endorphin release, helping natural pain relief and feelings of well-being
  • The sympathetic nervous system is calmed, allowing for deeper breathing, reduced blood pressure, stress and anxiety
  • The parasympathetic nervous system is activated, encouraging the body to relax and promoting restful sleep
Indian Head Massage is a truly holistic therapy in that it has many physiological and psychological benefits; many clients comment on the fact that they feel as if their whole body is balanced after the treatment.
