Ayurvedic Indian Head and Scalp Massage (aka champissage or “indian head massage”)

The Indian head massage is an ancient therapeutic practice used in India for over 2,000 years, (since around 600 B.C), is a more vigorous treatment than the standard swedish techniques used in traditional massage therapy by RMT’s in Ontario.
The Indian Head Massage Treatment (also known as champissage) has the Massage Therapist massaging your neck, shoulders, face, scalp, hair and head all first without oil and then with.

This appointment involves the practitioner running their hands through your hair, over your head, face, neck and shoulders with and without oil. This will leave you with a full head of well oiled hair.

Some potential benefits to Indian Head Massage are:

» Preventing jaw pain, clenching, teeth grinding, headaches and migraines by releasing built-up tension in the head, face, jaw and neck area and relieving muscle stiffness.

» Stimulating lymphatic drainage in the head, neck and face.

» Come in with hair recently brushed to avoid pulling on any tangles.
» Arrive without any makeup or jewlery on.
» You may wish to bring a hat or headband to leave with.
» Some choose to let the oil soak in for a few hours before washing it out to increase the hairs volume and give it a little extra time to absorb.
