Course Overview

Indian Head Massage, also known as Champissage, is a therapeutic massage technique that originated in India and primarily focuses on the head, neck, and shoulders. It is a form of holistic healing and relaxation that has been practiced for centuries and is deeply rooted in Indian culture.

This treatment is known for its ability to promote relaxation, reduce stress, and improve mental clarity. It can also help with headaches, sinus congestion, and sleep problems. Many people find it to be a deeply soothing and rejuvenating experience.

In addition to its physical benefits, Indian Head Massage is often considered an important part of Ayurveda, the traditional Indian system of medicine. It is believed to balance the body’s energy centers, or chakras, and promote overall well-being.

This course is designed as a community, taster course. Indian head massage, as the name indicates, originated from India and is a beautifully traditional practice that is now immensely popular amongst Western cultures. This is due to its simplicity and portability, that allows it to be utilised anywhere and everywhere, making relaxation and holistic wellness more accessible for everyone. Perhaps you want to work in a salon, want to upskill, or you may want to break into the sector – whatever your reasons, these courses will progress your career and allow you to deliver treatments. Delivered by industry-experienced tutors, many of these courses have clear progression routes, so you could start at introduction then progress up to Level 4.
