Brief History of Indian Head Massage

Indian Head Massage has been practiced in India for 4000 years.

It is based on the ancient Ayurvedic healing system in India.

  • Ayurvedic medicine is a holistic healing system, which combines natural therapies and encompasses the mind, body and spirit.
  • Ayurvedic means “the science of life”
  • It strives to restore balance and inner harmony to the mind, body and spirit to improve the health of an individual.
  • Indian women use oils in the hot climate as it helps to keep their hair shiny and in good condition.
  • In certain parts of India, barbers refer to head massage as “champi” hence the name “Shampoo”.
