Indian ChampissageTM -is an advanced form of Indian Head Massage which involves massage of the upper back, shoulders, upper arms, neck, head, face and ears. It includes subtle energy massage (energy balancing)

Indian Head Massage has been practiced in India for over a thousand years providing Indian families with relaxation and healing on a daily basis, as well as playing a part in everyday events such as a trip to the hairdresser as well as in rituals such as weddings and births.

The concept was originally developed by women who used different oils according to the season (coconut, sesame, almond, olive oil, herbal oils, buttermilk, mustard oil,  and henna) to keep their long hair strong, lustrous and in beautiful condition.  

It works by releasing  the stress that has accumulated in the tissues, muscles and joints of the upper back, head, face, neck and shoulders, and involves the client, sitting fully clothed  in a chair for the treatment. The therapist uses a range of different movements over the upper back, upper arms, neck, shoulder and scalp areas. In addition, the therapist will also gently stimulate and stroke pressure points on the face and ears. The session can last  about forty-five minutes or more, and then involve a short wind down period..

It is especially good for relieving stress, tension, fatigue, insomnia, headaches, migraine and sinusitis .The experience is deeply calming and relaxing, leaving you feeling energised and revitalised and better able to concentrate.

The benefits of Indian head massage help increase joint mobility and flexibility in the upper back, neck and shoulders, improve blood circulation and lymphatic flow, free knots of muscular tension, relax connective tissue, and aid in the elimination of accumulated toxins and waste products. It is particularly good for reducing the effects of stress and tension.

A success story

Penny virtually crawled (her words, not mine) into my treatment room 18 months ago with the aid of a walking stick. Penny is a Polio sufferer with PPS (Post Polio Syndrome), she also suffered migraines and frequent nosebleeds. Another of her concerns was a dreadfully uncomfortable skin condition affecting her upper back, shoulders, upper arms and décolletage. When the condition flared up the heat in the spots was intense. Having visited the Doctor and hospital over a 5 year period the condition could not be diagnosed. Penny has been having Indian Head Massage treatments from me. Regularly to start with, gradually spacing them out so that so that maintenance treatments now keep Penny well balanced.

Penny started using the Tropic Skincare Elixir Oil 6 months ago, applying it liberally when the spots flared up. Her skin has improved immensely. I saw Penny last night and the condition is visible but it is hardly visible!

Has the IHM or Elixir worked? We cannot say for certain but used in combination it has worked. The IHM certainly played it's part. The Elixir Oil has certainly played it's part.

Penny's migraines have all but stopped. Only 2 nosebleeds in 18 months and these were close together. Penny is feeling brilliant with no complaints and only uses her walking stick in crowds, shopping centres or on unsure surfaces. Penny is also a much calmer person.

We are both very happy. Penny is now trying the Tamanu balm on the scarring and also uses the Lime and Neroli organic oil on her hair and scalp. Oh, and the skincare and the face smooth!

If you of someone who may be helped by this Penny’s experience please share this with them.




"Since experiencing Indian head massage I no longer have a feeling of tension in my neck and shoulders and my posture has improved. I no longer feel anxious about everyday things and feel I can cope with whatever life throws at me ! After every therapy I feel more relaxed than the previous ones and can't quite believe that it feels better every time . My life feels improved in every way and I am so very glad that I found Linda and her 'healing hands ' " Jenny. Mid Calder


"Having experimented with a variety of complementary therapies over the years, I can say Linda is one of the best therapists I have ever visited.  Her touch and techniques are fantastic and I have been amazed, from the very first session, at the tangible differences her treatments have made to my physical and emotional well being.  In addition Linda is hugely knowledgeable on her subject and other relaxation techniques so she is a great source of advice.  All of this, combined with her natural warmth, make my regular treatments with Linda an essential part of my busy life." Claire , Livingston

bullet"I have been an Indian Head massage therapist for over 10 years and can honestly say that Linda's Indian Head massage was one of the best I have ever experienced. Linda tailors her massages to suit each client and I was blissfully relaxed afterwards. Not only that, but the effects lasted for several days. I can highly recommend Linda. You won't  be disappointed - just really, really relaxed!"; Yvonne, Edinburgh
bullet."Truly relaxing, I really recommend this treatment", Annie, Mid Calder
bullet"I'd always had an interest in having an Indian head massage, but never got around to actually having one. When That time came and I had some sessions with Linda. I thought to myself why haven't been having these before now? It was an amazing experience that I would recommend to everyone!  
Linda you were absolutely amazing. You made me feel very relaxed and comfortable and your technique is excellent to say the least, and your energy is fabulous. I felt transported to somewhere so peaceful and all the day to day thoughts that we all have, just melted away and my mind was still & quiet, which is not always easy when we live such busy lives.  
I would like to thank you for your wonderful treatments, I can't wait to book a party and introduce you and Indian head massage to my friends and family.  
Thank you" , Dawn, Eliburn
