This form of massage, known as "Champissage" in India, has been practiced for over a thousand years. It helps to restore balance and harmony to your body and mind and it feels heavenly.
Your first appointment includes an initial consultation which takes about 15 minutes before the treatment. This allows me to confidentially take some medical, lifestyle and health information and find out what your objectives are so I can tailor the treatment especially for you.
You will be in a seated position on a low-backed chair. You can either have a towel wrapped around you, or remain fully clothed; either way you will feel snuggly and warm. I work on the upper back, shoulders and neck using a variety of massage techniques, starting with gentle movements to make you feel at ease and help you relax into the treatment. Then the focus moves to the scalp to alleviate any tensions which have accumulated and finishing with a holistic facial massage .
Every treatment will be slightly different as I tailor the massage to your requirements, adapting my techniques and pressure according to what you need.
Despite being in a seated position, Indian Head Massage promotes a feeling of deep relaxation, calm and tranquility. Relaxing, yet invigorating this treatment also improves levels of concentration, creating a wonderful feeling of well-being. The only downside is that you'll need to restyle your hair afterwards!
I offer 45 minute Indian Head Massage treatments. Or you can combine this with another treatment for a longer more indulgent treatment of 1.5hours – please see the different Treatments and Prices for details of the different options.
