Champi, the Indian word meaning head massage, has been practiced in India for over 1,000 years. Champissage™ is based in Ayurvedic methods paying close attention to the upper back, shoulders, upper arms, neck, head and face – the areas most vulnerable to stress and tension.

At Uplift Spa, we are trained in the practice of Champissage™ through the International school of Indian Champissage™ based in London. Dr. Nahrendra Mehta is world famous for developing his own technique. The treatment is done seated in a chair and fully clothed. Champissage™ addresses stress in an immediate way bringing about tremendous relaxation & relief from stress-related aches & pains.
