Blog - Indian Champissage (Traditional Indian Head Massage)

By Jackie Lake: 06 May 2014

 Champissage includes massage of the shoulders, upper arms, neck, scalp, face, ears and energy balancing. It is a treatment that is carried out through clothes in a seated position making it ideal as a lunch-hour therapy, quick energiser or an end of week wind down.

This method of head massage is the brainchild of Narendra Mehta, who having been totally blind since the age of one, developed a highly sensitive power of touch. In 1978 he travelled to India to research the traditional head massage that had been practiced there for over a 1000 years. At that time in the UK very few massage therapists worked extensively on the scalp and Narendra was able to develop the unique treatment that is widely offered today.

A Champissage treatment can provide relief from aches and pains, stress symptoms, insomnia, promote hair growth, soothe, comfort and rebalance your energy flow which gives you a deep sense of peace, calm and tranquillity.

A nutritious hair and scalp oil can also be applied at the end of the massage at no extra charge; although this is optional.
