Head Massages (Champi) have been practiced in India for thousands of years as part of the Ayurvedic system of medicine dating back 4000 years. The Ayurvedic approach recommends the use of massage along with diet, herbs, meditation, yoga and exercise for health and longevity.
The traditional form of Champi massage includes massage of the shoulders, upper arms, neck, scalp, face, ears and energy balancing. The massage may be given through clothing without oil, or with a blend of essential oils that suits your needs.
Whether you prefer your massage dry or with oil, Indian Head Massage can address a variety of physical and emotional symptoms.
What are the benefits of Indian Head Massage?
Relieves upper and lower back pain, neck and shoulder tension.
Helps prevent migraines and headaches
Oftentimes, tension in the back, neck and shoulders lead to backpain, headaches and migraines, all of which make for uncomfortable living on a day to day basis.
During an Indian Head Massage, I will address tension and tightness in the upper body and release muscles, knots and tight joints. Thus reduce headache causing blockages and encourage better circulation.
Helps relieve congested sinuses from allergies or infection.
Using a series of strokes and marma points on the face, neck and scalp can bring great relief to sinus congestion.
Detoxifies the body by stimulating lymphatic drainage
Indian Head Massage stimulates and improves blood flow to the neck and lymphatic drainage thus helping to remove waste products from the body.
