Indian head massage, also known as a Champissage, is an ancient healing practice that originated more than 1000 years ago, and is a part of the Indian practice of Ayurveda. Originally, it was passed down as valuable advice into family and was a form of family grooming.
Just like all other practices and healing techniques based under Ayurveda, Indian head massage too, is based on promoting the well-being of all aspects of human life-physical, emotional and spiritual.
Ayurveda doesn’t need recognition-it has been practiced as a form of medicine in all parts of the globe, and is gaining popularity in the western countries too.
This science of medicine takes into account all the three fundamentals of life forms-physical, mental and spiritual to detect disease and cure it. Ayurveda uses natural and holistic therapies and remedies and encourages healthy lifestyle changes as the sole pathway to a healthy life.
Ayurveda is also known as the science of eight components, all of which are listed below-
Kaya Chikitsa (General medicine), which deals with sorting out the cures of common diseases that affect the body.
Shalya Chikitsa (Surgery), which involves removal of substances that may be harmful to the body.
Kaumara Bhrtya (Pediatrics), which deals with cure of diseases affecting children.
Agada Tantra (Toxicology), which uses the doctrine of antidotes.
Bhuta Vidya (Demonology/Excorcism), which involves dealing with mental disorders based on the experiences of the past
Salakya Tantra (Ophthalmology), which deals with diseases of the eye
Rasayana Tantra (Elixirs), which involves medicines and medicinal preparations
Vajikarana Tantra (Aphrodisiacs), which is self-explanatory.
