Massage Treatments Prices, Details & History

Swedish massage has been around a long time. It was was developed by 2 Swedish therapists. Different strokes are used at different times during the treatment. Your therapist uses oil to cover your skin, allowing for some slip and good grip. Hands are then used to manipulate muscles under the skin. This relaxes the muscles and warms them. Different types of stroke are then used to push any toxins out of the muscles.
Deep tissue massage can help most people in one way or another. It uses deep pressure that is applied slowly, stage by stage. It is particularly beneficial to those who have bodily aches and pains in muscles and joints.

Indian Head massage (champissage or champi) was first recorded in the Ayurveda (Knowledge of Life) around 600BC. Originally it was the elder women of the family that practised champi. The practise was derived from grooming rituals back then. Oils can be used but, they don't have to be. In 1978 Narendra Mehta came to study physiotherapy in England. When he had massages a head massage was missed out. So he went about creating what is now known as Indian Head massage.
