Who benefits from this treatment? Many professionals take this training to offer to their clients in spas, yoga centres, health clinics and beyond. Many non professionals take this to offer to family and friends which often leads them further along into full body massage training. 

This training course is fairly demanding and requires good attention to the details being taught during the training days and with the at-home non-optional practices each night of the training. 

The Indian Head Massage (Champissage) formed a part of women´s daily beauty routines in India, before it became the common more comprehensive massage treatment that it is today and now offered world wide. The massage balances the body, mind and spirit as it relaxes the muscles, realigns the joints, improves blood and energy flow throughout the body and stimulates the lymphatic.    

The moves are not standard massage moves but for trained RMT's some of the moves can easily be incorporated into standard massage treatments. While this is a comprehensive treatment on it's own it is also a suitable and well received  add-on treatment to an hour massage. 

The moves include the upper back, the shoulders, upper arms, neck, head and face. The final energy balancing moves incorporate the upper 3 chakras which is also taught in this course. 

Some A & P of the areas worked on are covered within the training and as well, the Benefits and Contraindications of the treatment are discussed at length and are also lightly detailed on the website. 

This is a sound and affordable way to introduce yourself into the world of the alternative healing arts or to enhance your existing treatment tool kit. 

Indian Head Massage is growing in popularity and is offered in many small to high end spas around the world. 

Why do people seek to have this treatment? 
It is affordable, safe and requires no oils. Clients can at the end opt into a treatment of hair oil but this is not part or a requirement of the treatment.  
People can remain clothed so it's convenient to offer inside short timelines and in  unique settings where other types of massage might not be suited.
A well trained and practiced therapist consistently experiences positive results with clients. It is a complementary treatment to many other treatments.
