Champissage (Ayurvedic Indian Head Massage)


An introduction to Champissage


Indian Head MassageChampissage originated from Ayurveda, the ancient system of medicine which has been practiced in India for over 1,000 years. It is form of relaxation massage done over the clothing with the client in a seated position. Focus is on the face, head, neck, scalp, shoulders, upper back, and upper arms – all of which are important energy centers within the body where tension may accumulate resulting in neck and shoulder pain and/or headaches. A firm and gentle rhythm is used to release blockages and relieve the tension and pain.


Champissage helps increase joint mobility and flexibility in the neck and shoulders; improves blood circulation and lymphatic flow; frees knots of muscular tension; relaxes connective tissue; and aids in the elimination of accumulated toxins and waste products. This form of massage is very relaxing and has a balancing effect on the recipient helping them to release on all levels: physical, emotional and psychological, creating a sense of peace and well-being.


Champissage sessions are scheduled for 30/45 minutes at $40/$60 respectively.
