About our Head Massage Training Course

Champissage comes from the Hindi word ‘champi’ which means ‘massage of the head.’

In its contemporary form, this is a massage of the upper back, shoulders, upper arms, neck, and scalp, ears and face together with energy balancing. The recipient is seated and remains fully clothed. The therapist stands behind or slightly to the side of the recipient. The average length of a treatment is thirty minutes.

Recipients regularly report reduction in muscular tension.

There are many benefits, including

• Muscular relaxation

• Loosening up of neck and shoulder joints

• Relief from headaches, eyestrain, sinusitis, insomnia, migraine and jaw ache.

• A sense of calmness; release of anxiety and help in clearer thinking

The therapy is excellent for computer users and all office workers. It’s also good for everyone who is leading a stressful life.

The recipient is fully clothed and seated. No oils or creams are used. This is a very consumer friendly massage. It is ideal for the office, on the beach, in the clinic or at home —- almost anywhere! Indian Champissage can be practiced and received together with existing therapies.

The course takes three days. At the London Centre of Indian Champissage International’s training site in London, the training courses are normally held from Friday to Sunday. The hours are from 10am until 6pm. The Centre’s reception area is open approximately 20 minutes before the start of each day’s training. Students are expected to be present at all times. At other training locations, the days and times may vary.

Students receive group-based instruction, followed by individual tuition when necessary, during the three days. Training takes place in the main teaching room. Adjacent to this is a reception area where bags and coats may be left. There is one WC, one washroom and a kitchen with a fridge, microwave and gas-fired oven.

You do not receive a Diploma at the end of the three-day training. You will be awarded the LCICI Diploma once you have passed the Diploma exam (both written and practical parts) and have had your Case Study material reviewed and accepted. At the end of the three-day training course, you will be presented with a signed Attendance Certificate.

From the end of the three-day training to the day of the Diploma exam, students take a minimum of three months and, on average, four to five months to complete their case and home studies. Some students take longer than this. It is not unknown for someone to return to take the exam two years after participating on a training course. However, most people find it works better for them to start their practice as soon as possible after attending the training.

If you want to use the massage to help friends and family, you do not necessarily need to sit and pass the Diploma exam. You can simply attend the three-day training. However, if you wish to practice professionally — in order to receive insurance cover, you MUST present a Diploma in your name from the Centre to a reputable insurance broker. Ultimately, the choice is yours.
