How Does It Work?
The Indian head massage is an ancient therapeutic practice used in India for 1,000 years, usually by mothers on their daughters. It is part of the practice of medicine called Ayurveda, which aims to promote long life and balance the body’s energies. It was often used with spices and herbs that would promote good health and skin.
Traditionally, the Indian head massage was used at weddings and births. Today, many babies still receive the massage to keep them in good health. Spas and barbershops have been known to use the massage as well.
Indian Head Massage relieve aches, pains and tension in your neck, back and shoulders, improve the texture of your hair and encourage it to grow. An Indian head massage stimulates the flow of blood, lymph and oxygen in your upper body, and therefore may clear your sinuses, relieve stress and help you sleep better.
Indian head massage, as the name indicates, originated from India and is a beautifully traditional practice that is now immensely popular amongst Western cultures. This is due to its simplicity and portability, that allows it to be utilised anywhere and everywhere, making relaxation and holistic wellness more accessible for everyone. Read on to uncover more about the benefits of Indian head massage, where it came from and what to expect if you’d like to go for a treatment.
Indian head massage, also known as champissage, is a treatment that focuses on massaging acupressure points along the head, neck, and shoulders, often using circular massage strokes to improve hair and scalp condition.
It originates from an Indian alternative medicine system called Ayurveda, (translated as the ‘science of life’), whereby it is believed that the mind and body are intricately connected and thus can influence one another. Through this theory, is is understood that Indian head massage can not only reduce headaches and improve physical well-being, but it can also improve mental and emotional wellness too.
Indian head massage is an ancient therapeutic practice that has been used in India for over 5000 years, and requires no oils or equipment, making it a very accessible treatment, perfect for newcomers to massage. It is usually done while seated and through light clothing.
The simplicity and accessibility of Indian head massage also means that it is a massage you can give yourself very easily anytime you need to unwind. Watch the video below from Indian blogger Sushmita who outlines the acupressure points (presented as ‘Marma’ points from the Sanskrit translation), and demonstrates a routine you can try for yourself, with or without the oils.
