Overview of a
indian head massage

Indian head massage (IHM) is a Hindu massage technique, tracing back to the ancient ways of Ayurvedic Indian health care. Used for over 4,000 years to improve overall health, this massage has become more and more prevalent in recent years. It is also known as champissage or shiroabhyanga. 

Benefits of a indian head massage

  • Helps prevent migraines, headaches and back pain

  • Promotes hair growth

  • Detoxifies the body by stimulating lymphatic drainage

  • Relieves sleeplessness, restlessness and insomnia

  • Relieves symptoms of anxiety and depression

  • Renews energy levels

What To expect

Many European spas and holistic health clinics offer Indian head massage. The practice focuses on the parts of the body that are most prone to tension and stress:

  • scalp

  • face

  • neck

  • arms

  • shoulders

  • upper back 

Indian head massage combines techniques to include various massage strokes and acupressure points. Treatment includes kneading and probing of the neck and shoulder areas. The scalp is then massaged, using squeezing, tapping, rubbing or prodding motions.

The therapist will also manipulate facial pressure points to relieve sinus pressure, increase alertness and stimulate circulation. A patient's ears may then be pressed and tugged, and their hair tousled.
