Indian Head Massage

Indian head massage, also known as Champissage, is a treatment that focuses on massaging acupressure points along the head, neck, and shoulders. This is often using circular massage strokes to improve hair and scalp condition.

When choosing a massage therapist it is likely you have some questions about what to expect. You may have some apprehension if seeking this or in fact, any therapy is new to you.

We at Seek a Therapy want to help answer your questions and concerns surrounding the therapy in order to help you select the right practitioner for you. That is why, on this page, we have included some of the most common questions a person may have before speaking to an Indian Head Massage specialist.

What is Indian Head Massage?

Indian head massage is an ancient complementary therapy, based on the ayurvedic system of healing that has been practiced in India over for over a thousand years. This gentle form of massage therapy is part of Indian family life.

Part of the Hindu health care practice of Ayurveda, Indian head massage focuses on your head, neck and shoulders and was originally used to improve scalp and hair condition. It is a deep massage, using a variety of pressure and techniques, including circular massage strokes on your scalp, deep tissue work on your shoulders, and stretching the neck.


This form of massage focuses on the three higher “chakras”. A good Indian head massage will relax you and can also make you feel detached and serene. People often feel alert and clear-headed, alleviating brain fog and stress after an Indian head massage.

Even if you don’t experience this level of relaxation, this massage treatment offers all kinds of other benefits including, relieving stress, helping you sleep better, reducing depression and anxiety as well as helping with eye strain and more! Sometimes, therapists may use aromatherapy oils to enhance your therapy further.

How Do I Know Which Practioner To Choose?

One of the most important parts of any therapy is the relationship between yourself and the therapist.

When you find the right practitioner that offers you good communication, a partnership, trust, goals and a feeling of genuine understanding then together, over time, you will be able to challenge your thoughts, beliefs and perceptions. Also, sometimes you may be able to find a practitioner with specialities in the area you want to work on whether health, relationships, business or something else.

How Long Does It Take For Indian Head Massage Take To Have An Effect?

It will really depend upon the reason you are taking herbal medicine. Some people, report after 2 weeks noticing an improvement in their wellbeing and for others, it can take longer.

What If It Doesn’t Work For Me?

First of all, don’t worry!

You will not offend your therapist, they just want you to heal from your situation as best you can. All healers believe you deserve to feel the best you can. If, on the other hand, you don’t feel it is working at all then do not be disheartened. There are many, many different types of therapy and this is only one.
