Indian Champi Massage – ICM
The Indian Champi is the ancient, original Ayurvedic art of head massage, dating back thousands of years. It is performed fully clothed while seated comfortably upright in a chair and can be used for physical harmony, for healing, for vitality, and for good, old-fashioned relaxation.
Champi treatment is focused on all areas that classically collect tension in the upper body: the upper back and arms, the shoulders, head, neck and face. The brain is the seat of the nervous system and by massaging the head and neck the whole body is treated, as the nerves, blood and lymph vessels travel from the base of the neck down the spine to the rest of the body.
Champi was used as a technique for grooming by women in ancient India as it helped to strengthen and improve the fullness of the hair. This was achieved by stimulating the pressure points on the scalp and became part of everyday life that was practiced on young and old alike. It became a tradition that was handed down through the generations from mother to daughter.
In different seasons different oils are used – in winter sesame oil with herbs for warming, in summer coconut oil for cooling and nurturing the roots of hair. After oil massage the hair shouldn’t be washed before 2h, preferably even not before than next day. Champi can be done without oil, if wished, but many ancient benefits result from the nutrients also.
Deep relaxing moves are employed, easing away fatigue and tensions in upper back, shoulders, arms and neck. Many moves are perceived very familiar almost by everyone – like squeezing the trapezius muscle or circling with fingertips in the hair, keeping heels of the hands in contact with the scalp as well as the fingers. The name of this massage „Champi“ has given the root for word „shampoo“ along with the motion used in washing the hair.
Champi is amazingly soothing and nurturing, yet totally invigorating, working the upper three chakras: vishuddha, ajna, and sahasrara. This is the perfect treatment for everyone from desk workers to busy moms to release some of the aches and pains in the shoulders, head and neck, leaving one feeling serene, tranquil and refreshed.
