Indian Head Massage

Indian Head Massage is a holistic treatment dating back many thousands of years. In India it has always been an important part of family life from birth to old age, family members are taught to share massage across the generations to keep them in good health.

Many Indian barbers offer a hair cut with a Champi (head massage) as part of the treatment. The massage would be an invigorating scalp massages designed to stimulate and refresh the individual. The word ‘shampoo’ comes from the Hindi word‘Champi’ meaning head massage.


Indian Head Massage is deeply relaxing and this encourages the body’s own healing abilities.



In the west we have developed Indian Head Massage to include the

upper back, arms, chest, neck, face and scalp. These are places where many people hold stress and tension and the gentle movements used may release these tensions by calming the mind, improving blood circulation and increasing lymphatic drainage.
A full treatment takes about 45 minutes.
