In India, massage is believed to be the most powerful way to relax and rejuvenate the body and has been in practice for over 1000 years. Indian Head Massage, known in India as 'champissage', was originally developed by women using different oils according to the season (coconut, sesame, almond, olive, mustard, buttermilk, herbal oil and henna) to condition their hair, making it strong and beautiful.
