Indian Head Massage, also known as Champissage, has been practiced in India for over a thousand years. It originated as a form of grooming and self-care in Indian families, where parents would massage their children’s heads to promote hair growth and relaxation.

Over time, Indian Head Massage evolved into a healing practice and was incorporated into Ayurvedic medicine. Ayurveda is a traditional system of medicine that originated in India and emphasizes a holistic approach to health and wellness.

In the 1970s, Indian Head Massage was introduced to the West by Narendra Mehta, a blind Indian massage therapist who developed the technique further. Mehta created a unique sequence of movements and developed a structured curriculum for training practitioners.

In the following years, Indian Head Massage gained popularity in the West, and it is now widely practiced in spas, clinics, and wellness centers worldwide. It is commonly used to relieve stress, anxiety, and tension, promote relaxation, improve circulation, and alleviate headaches and other physical discomforts.
