What is a Head Massage

Head Massage in Portsmouth provide by Cosham Pain Relief Massage Centre.

Indian head massage, also known as champissage, is a treatment that focuses on massaging acupressure points along the head,  neck, and shoulders, often using circular massage strokes to improve hair and scalp condition.

It originates from an Indian alternative medicine system called Ayurveda, (translated as the ‘science of life’), whereby it is  believed that the mind and body are intricately connected and thus can influence one another. Through this theory, is is  understood that Indian head massage can not only reduce headaches and improve physical well-being, but it can also improve mental  and emotional wellness too.

Indian head massage is an ancient therapeutic practice that has been used in India for over 2000 years, (since around 600 B.C.),  and requires no oils or equipment, making it a very accessible treatment, perfect for newcomers to massage. It is usually done  while seated and through light clothing.

In Traditional Chinese Medicine, massage is seen as having a holistic impact on the client, promoting physical as well as emotional health and well-being. In other words, thousands of years of Traditional Chinese Medicine concur with increasing evidence from Western scientific studies: Massage can be a powerful tool for wellness.

Chinese massage, like Western massage traditions, is thought to be useful in alleviating chronic pain and emotional distress, improving mobility and function of the body and supporting healing from illness and injury. The details of how massage is thought to achieve this are a little different than in Western traditions, however.

In Traditional Chinese Medicine, the body is thought to function optimally when the fundamental life energy called qi (also spelled chi), can flow freely through the meridians, or energy pathways. Health ailments and pain are often the result of blockages in the flow of qi.

Stiffness or tension in soft tissue, connective tissue, and joints can disrupt the circulation of qi. Massage can aid in releasing muscle tension and knots and improving flexibility and range of motion, facilitating the healthy movement of qi throughout the body. This in turn helps organs and other body systems function well.

Acupoints are specific locations of the body where qi often collects or pools. These points can be targeted by both acupuncture and acupressure treatment to restore the free flow of qi. In acupuncture, narrow needles are inserted into the surface of the skin to achieve this; in acupressure, finger pressure is used instead.
