About the Course
The Indian Head massage, also known as champissage (champi + massage) or Shiroabhyanaga is a widely popular form of head massage. It is based on the ancient Ayurvedic healing beliefs of India. In the Indian culture, oil based head massage is quite common and the skills have been handed down from generation to generation. Most Indians apply oil about two times a week, as they believe it helps reduce stress and it keeps their hair in good condition.
The Indian head massage is quite popular in the west due to the flexibility and ease of access of providing the massage. It can be given anytime, and anywhere for an instant soothing effect on the mind and body. While learning this form, students will understand the art of using hands and fingers to press, knead and rub the tissues of the scalp, neck, shoulders and upper back to help soothe, relax and rejuvenate the client.
At Aithein, students will learn the application of Indian Head massage on sitting posture of the client. They will also analyze the use and effects of different ayurvedic and herbal oils according to the symptoms and how to apply their knowledge to create relaxation in the muscles of the neck, shoulder and back of their clients. Students will be taught the scientific effects of using champissage to treat migraine, insomnia, neck and shoulder pains.
