A bit of history about Indian Head Massage
As the name implies, Indian head massage originates in India, where this form of holistic therapy has been practiced for over 1000 years. The procedure’s name comes from the Hindi word “champi ied”, translated as “hair-washing” and suggesting the initial significance and role of this technique.
Head massage was first used by hairdressers to stimulate the blood flow to the scalp and enhance oxygen, nutrients and blood supply to hair roots. Through this technique and based on the properties of substances used for washing the hair, its growth was stimulated and both the scalp and hair were maintained clean and healthy looking.
The procedure gained popularity not only within India but in European countries as well and developed quite quickly, nowadays a typical Indian head massage session incorporating the manipulation of skin on face, neck, shoulders, upper back and arms as well.

What is an Indian Head Massage?
Indian head massage is included in the Ayurvedic system, considered the world’s oldest form of holistic therapy and incorporating techniques which aim to relax, heal and balance the mind, body and spirit.
By rebalancing the chakras or energy centers of the body, this type of massage improves blood flow, stimulates the elimination of toxins, relieves tension and aches in muscles and helps the client connect to his body in a more profound way.
Indian massage is considered more than a form of physical therapy, both practitioners and clients seeing it as a spiritual experience, as it induces a positive energy and a sense of well-being
