Herbal Ayurvedic Scalp Massage

Our Herbal Scalp Massage is rooted in Ayurvedic traditions. Traditionally known as Indian head massage, also known as Champissage, it originates in India as the name implies. This treatment focuses on massaging acupressure points along the head, neck, and shoulders to improve hair and scalp condition, as well as stimulate circulation, ease tension, & assist with sinus drainage and lymphatic flow.

A Note on Tiered Service Pricing:

Our Entry-level practitioners are talented, knowledgeable individuals looking to gain experience while building their clientele. They have been training in most modalities on our service menu & set aside time for continuing education whether that happens on location or in other areas. Our entry-level service pricing should in no way deter you from scheduling with these practitioners, instead see it as an opportunity to help shape their practice & be one of their founding clients!  Our Advanced practitioners have a few more years under their belt, a more established client list, & more cumulative continuing education. Our Expert level practitioners have several years of experience & limited availability on their schedules. While open to new clients, spaces are more limited.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Herbal Scalp Massage

  • What is to expect?

    • A typical Indian head massage treatment, usually starts with the shoulders, working into this area especially as it often holds a lot of tension. The upper back may also be massaged by working around the shoulder blade. Following this, flowing motions will move up the neck massaging and stretching to relieve any stress and tension. Finally, the scalp is then massaged along the acupressure points on the head, and in non-corporate settings, followed up by the forehead and the area around the eyes. The upper back and arms can also be massaged depending on the techniques being used. Though we follow a more integrative approach to ensure a seamless, intuitive massage. 

  • What should I wear?​

    • Come expecting to be comfortable. We do ask that you remove items from the waist up. You will be professionally draped and cozy under a warm blanket on our heated tables. You should also expect to leave with oily hair, so bring a hair tie or wrap for after the service.
