What is Indian Head Massage?

Indian Head Massage is a relaxing treatment which, as the name suggests, concentrates on massaging the head. Head and scalp massage can be used alongside simple meditative techniques to provide a simple and effective way to relax. I perform Indian Head Massage in Wolverhampton and Staffordshire, but there are many reputable therapists throughout the country. I also offer Indian Head Massage Training Courses (and can offer one to one tuition by arrangement).

A Brief History of Indian Head Massage

The Hindi word for head massage is "Champi" and aspects of the treatment have a long tradition in Indian families. Mothers would stroke their daughter's hair to promote its growth and health.

Narendra Mehta - blind from the age of one - grew up in India and head massage was an integral part of his life. He came to England in the 1970s to train as a physical therapist and in 1978 returned to India to study the benefits and practice of champissage, extending it to include neck, shoulders and face. On his return to England, he developed a sequence of movements. There is no right or wrong way and sequence of movements vary from one therapist to another.

The treatments involves massage, shiatsu and acupressure techniques on upper back, shoulders, arms/hands, neck, scalp and face. This relaxes tense areas but, at the same time, helps to rebalance the energy, clearing any areas of negativity.

Frequently Asked Questions

Here is a list of some typical questions I'm frequently asked. Hopefully anything you might want to know is covered somewhere on this page. If it isn't, don't hesitate to contact me.

Do you use oils on the scalp? 
They can be used but most people prefer not to have them as it leaves the hair very oily and often people are going back to the office or going out. However, if the client would like the aromatic oils, this is no problem.. 

It looks uncomfortable, is it? 
Not at all. I have a lot of clients who ask for a head massage when they wish to relax and unwind.
