I took my Mum to see Kim Weir who is a specialist in Sports Massage, Injury Treatment & Rehabilitation. My mum is having problems with her sciatic nerve – very painful indeed.
Having been to lots of therapeutic masseuses myself, I know who is good and who is not. Many times, I have paid a lot for a treatment and felt no better.
Kim has strength in her techniques, excellent training behind her and a valuable understanding of nerves, muscles and bones.
For anyone who wants to go and see her, she works at The Maple Leaf Clinic in Twickenham.
According to Jenny from Esoteric Online Radio, as stated in the following video footage has the following benefits:
“It alleviates stress and tension, aids in relaxation, improves sleep patterns and concentration and helps with issues of anxiety and depression. Physically, it can relieve headaches and migraines, loosen knots within muscles, eases neck and shoulder pain and helps joint mobility. It also increases blood flow to the treated area and allows lymphatic drainage to become more efficient. On a spiritual level, it works your upper chakras and releases blockages to allow a free flow of energy (chi) around the body.”
Narendra Mehta is a recognised Teacher of IHM:
What is Indian Champissage?
Indian Head Massage (Champissage™) includes massage of the shoulders, upper arms, neck, scalp, face, ears and energy balancing. This method is the brainchild of Narendra Mehta. It is based on the traditional form of Champi (head massage) practised in India for over 1,000 years.
It is a wonderfully relaxing therapy. The massage is safe, simple to learn and very effective to give, without the need to undress or use oils. It can provide relief from aches and pains, stress symptoms, insomnia, promote hair growth, soothe, comfort and rebalance your energy flow which gives you a deep sense of peace, calm and tranquillity.
He established the L.C.I.C. in 1995 and has trained students both in the UK and abroad.
You can find Indian Head Massage Practitioners anywhere now. Make sure you pay close attention to Jenny’s explanation of what the massage should entail. Feel free to ask your Practitioner where they trained and allow them to tell you about it before you decide to have one. They should ask you about your medical history. You can have one with or without oil. It’s better with!
You can give yourself one too – it is a bit tricky and not as good as someone else doing it but still worth it.
It is a wonderful treatment. My Mum gives a really good one. It’s something we have done since we were kids.
