The ancient art of Indian Head Massage is almost as old as massage itself in India, with documentation in Ayurvedic texts dating back almost 4000 years. The Hindi word 'champi' means head massage and this is where we derive the English word 'shampoo' from.

Indian Head Massage incorporates deep thumb and finger pressure, friction movements, as well as soothing effleurage, which covers the upper back, shoulders, upper arms, neck, scalp and face. These techniques reduce muscular and nervous tension and improve circulation of blood and lymph.

Many people complain of tension in these areas when under stress or frustrated, especially when working long hours. Indian head massage can be very effective and can also help with conditions that are not necessarily associated with the areas worked. For example, eczema in other parts of the body can be eased by relieving stress and tension.

I had my first Indian Head Massage at Melinda's 'new' place. As usual, 'Our Lady of the Magical Hands' quickly put me into a state of deep relaxation. If you like having your shoulders, neck and head massaged (the aromatic oils are a bonus), I highly recommend you experience Melinda giving you an hour of utter enjoyment.

Nelson, you are always a pleasure! Thank you so much for lovely review 🙂
