For over a thousand years head massage, or ‘champissage’ as it is known in India, has been practised with the knowledge having been handed down through many generations. In modern India head massage continues to play a regular part in every day family life and is considered to be very significant in stress management.
This scalp stimulation, combined with the use of carefully selected natural vegetable oils, helps in part to explain the rich healthy hair of many Indian women. In today’s stressful climate the effect on the hair takes second place to the additional benefits that Indian Head Massage can offer in alleviating stress and tension. In this country the use of oils is not integral to the treatment; that is entirely up to the client.
