Indian head massage, also known as Champissage, is a trademarked term for an therapy in which the head, neck and face are massaged with the purpose of manipulating energy channels.
The goal is to clear blocks in these energy channels that cause a build-up of negative energy that are purported to cause ailments.
The belief is when the energy does not flow properly, negative energy builds up, causing common ailments, including stress, pain and nociception pains and aches, and baldness or hair loss.
Champissage is practiced all over Europe. Indian head massage was brought to the west by Narendra Mehta in the 1970s
