Based on an ancient Indian healing system, the Ayurveda, an Indian head massage (or champissage) is subtle and deep leaving the client feeling deeply relaxed, de-stressed and rejuvenated.

The massage can be done with or without essential oils depending on the clients wishes. It is geneally performed in a quiet, warm room, over clothes and with jewellrey removed. The recipient usually sits in an upright chair with both feet flat on the ground.

The consultation
Before the treatment can take place the therapist will do the initial consultation where the client is asked about their medical history, health and lifestyle.

Treatment begins with both the recipent and the therapist taking some deep breathes to relax. The therapist begins by using a combination of deep, rhythimic kneading movemnents working over the entire upper back, shoulders, and neck before moving on to the head.

The head is then worked, with the scalp and muscles in the head being squeezed, rubbed, pinched and tapped. The face and head are then worked using pressure point techniques.

The therapist then ends the treatment with some chakra balancing tecniques. The result is a relaxed, refreshed and calmer you!

Most holistic and beauty therapy centres in Cornwall perform Indian head massage and you should expect to pay between £10-£30 for a treatment lasting around 20-30 minutes.
