Indian Head Massage
An Indian Head massage, also known as Champissage, is where the shoulders, neck, head and face are massaged with the purpose of manipulating energy channels. The goal is to clear blocks in these energy channels that are purported to cause a build-up of negative energy and result in ailments. The technique releases muscle tension, stimulates circulation and encourages lymphatic drainage. It stretches and mobilises the tissues of the neck and shoulders. This fully oxygenates the cells, improves blood flow to the head and neck, and increases the distribution of nutrients to encourage healing throughout the body. It improves and stimulates scalp circulation which helps to promote texture combined with strength and growth of hair.

Aromatherapy massage is a deeply relaxing style of massage which combines various massage techniques with the use of carefully selected essential oils. These fragrant oils have unique healing properties which help to strengthen the body’s self-healing process. Aromatherapy massage stimulates the immune system, encourages hormone balance, soothes the nervous system and relieves emotional, physical and mental tension. It’s a great way to uplift the spirit, feel revitalised and install a sense of positivity and well-being.
Shiatsu is a healing art, originating in Japan, which uses the power of touch and pressure over acupressure points and meridians (energy pathways), which are connected to our internal organs and influence our emotional, psychological, spiritual health. During a shiatsu massage the therapist uses pressure with thumbs, fingers, palms, and sometimes knees, elbows and feet, to induce deep relaxation and a feeling of well-being. It is sometimes dynamic, sometimes seemingly quite static, involving pressure on the limbs and torso, as well as rotations, the kneading and releasing of tight muscles and supporting areas of weakness. To receive, shiatsu is deeply relaxing and yet invigorating, leaving a feeling of tranquillity and a sense of being in touch with every part of one’s body. You remain fully clothed for this treatment.
