Indian Head Massage


What is Indian Head Massage?

Indian Head Massage is a sequence of movements that evolved from both a traditional practice known as Champi and the rich tradition of family grooming in the Indian sub-continent. Indian women originally performed stimulating hair and scalp massages for each other in conjunction with the use of oils to keep their long hair beautiful.

The traditional head and scalp massage experienced many changes by the time it was introduced to the West in the early 1980ís by pioneers such as Narendra Mehta. Its emphasis now is to encourage relaxation from everyday stress and tension. Thus Indian Head Massage developed into a flowing sequence of non-invasive, relaxing and rhythmic movements that primarily focus on the top half of the body.
