What is Indian Head Massage?

Indian Head Massage, also known as Champissage, is a holistic therapy that focuses on the head, neck, and shoulders. It incorporates a combination of gentle massage techniques and acupressure to release tension, improve circulation, and promote overall well-being.

What is to Expect at a Session?

You'll be comfortably seated in a chair or lying down on a massage table, fully clothed and ready to unwind.

A blend of gentle massage techniques will then be used to focus on releasing tension and stress from the muscles of your scalp, neck, shoulders, and upper back.

Depending on your chose of seated or lying down, Aromatherapy oils may be used during the massage to enhance the experience and promote relaxation. These oils are carefully selected based on their therapeutic properties and may include calming lavender, invigorating peppermint, or balancing rosemary, among others.

Acupressure techniques will also be applied, targeting specific pressure points on the head and face to relieve headaches, sinus congestion, and mental fatigue. This gentle stimulation helps to restore balance to the body's energy flow and promote a sense of well-being.

Many clients report feeling lighter, clearer-headed, and more at peace after an Indian Head Massage session.

After the massage is complete, you will be given aftercare advice on how to prolong the benefits of the treatment, such as staying hydrated, practicing deep breathing exercises, and maintaining good posture.

Is Indian Head Massage Suitable for You?

While Indian Head Massage is generally safe and beneficial for most people, there are certain times that a treatment will not be suitable for you, please always consult your medical professional/GP if you fall into any of the following:


If you have recently experienced head or neck injuries, you should avoid Indian Head Massage until you have fully healed and received clearance from your consultant or GP.
