This is a treatment from the Ayurvedic tradition. It is also known as Champissage (from the Hindi "to shampoo"). It is not just a head massage. It involves rubbing the hair and muscles of the head, neck, shoulders and upper arms. It incorporates acupressure and classical massage movements, as well as traditional Ayurvedic principles.
INDIAN HEAD MASSAGE
Reflexology is a gentle and effective form of foot massage where pressure is applied to specific points on the feet which correspond to different areas of the body. Working these points, or reflexes, helps to improve blood circulation, and encourages the production of the body's natural pain killers to help restore balance and promote well-being.
This treatment stems from a traditional form of oriental massage called Anma, meaning "to press and rub". The client remains clothed whilst sitting on a specially designed chair. It incorporates techniques used in acupressure, Swedish massage and shiatsu. Meridians (energy lines) are stimulated by applying pressure to specific pressure points on the upper body.
