Indian Head Massage

For generations, families in India have practised this invigorating, deep massage, known as champissage, for cleansing and relaxation. The practice began with women using it to treat their daughters' hair. Barbers have also used it as part of the process to cut their male clients' hair. The tradition has been passed on in Indian families from one generation to the next.

An Indian Head Massage may prove beneficial by:

Relieving built up tension that can often result in headaches, migraines, neck and back pain.

Detoxifying the body by stimulating lymphatic drainage

Improving circulation, which in turn increases energy levels.

Relieving symptoms of sinusitis.

Relieving sleeplessness, restlessness and insomnia.

Providing relief from stress and promoting relaxation

Increasing feelings of peace, calm and well being.

When you arrive at Dancing in the Rain, there will be a holistic consultation to complete before we start, to ensure the treatment is right for you and tailored to your needs.

You can remain seated and fully clothed for an Indian Head Massage (although you can choose to wear a camisole top and have massage oil on your shoulders and scalp, if you prefer) or you can lay down on the therapy couch, whichever is more comfortable for you.

The treatment, covers your upper back, shoulders, arms, neck, scalp and face and will take approximately 30 minutes.
