Where We Found It: Lumbini, India

“All I can remember of Lumbini was the thousands and thousands of prayer flags.Indian Head Massage

And the incredible sense of peace.

Some were faded, some fresh from the nearby stalls, and all were strung up from the tree under which Buddha was born.

The other thing I remember is my boyfriend blissed out after an Indian Head massage.

Why wasn’t I the one getting the massage?Indian Head Massage For Office Massage

Well, much to my dismay in India this is a tradition that men get to enjoy at the makeshift barber shops scattered along the pavements. When I say “shop” I mean a mirror strung up on a fence and chair.

So my guinea pig boyfriend got lots of Indian Head massages in Lumbini, Varanasi, Delhi and Orccha (which he ended up getting addicted to) whilst I watched and took lots of notes.

Back here in Oz, anyone can get one from Ripple. Deeply relaxing, it will give you a little piece of the peace I found in Lumbini.” Ali


Indian Head Massage Techniques

Indian head massage, or Champissage (champi is the Hindi word for head massage), is a massageĀ  that is based on the ancient healing system of Indian Head Massage TechniquesAyurveda.

Indian head massage focuses on treating the patient using massage techniques on the face, head, neck, upper arms and shoulders. It uses gentle massage strokes on these areas to stimulate the nerves, loosen up tight muscles, and relax superficial tissues.

The belief is that three of the major energy centres of the human body can be found in and around the head. By stimulating these energy centres, Indian head massage helps to maintain the crucial balance of energy within the body, and therefore promotes a sense of well being, and soothes and heals the body both physically and emotionally.

The treatment has been practiced in India for over a thousand years.

Originally it was almost exclusively concerned with massage of the head and hair follicles, to stimulate blood flow to the scalp and thereby nourishing hair roots.

Various herbs, oils and spices with known healing properties were used in the process to relieve a number of common scalp conditions. Over time the practice evolved to incorporate massage of the face, scalp, neck, upper back, shoulders and upper arms.

How is it done?

This position allows the therapist to have full access to the head, face, neck, scalp, shoulders, upper arms, and upper back.
