Indian Head Massage Course Details:

This 1-day course is ideal for beginners with no massage experience or therapists looking to add this popular therapy to their existing treatments. The full course structure can be found at the bottom of this page.

There is a full practical demonstration for the entire class to observe which is broken down into smaller sections, making it easy to follow & learn.

We only run small courses of up to 6 people. This is necessary to give you individual attention and to respond fully to any questions you may have. We will make you feel comfortable and relaxed and we will encourage you to communicate freely and openly in the class.

Furthermore, there will be plenty of opportunity for you to practice your new massage skills. At the end of the course there will be a practical test to assess your skills. As part of the training, you will practise an Indian head massage and receive one yourself. We believe it is as important for you to learn the different massage techniques as to experience them. Only then you will know what your future clients will experience during their Indian head massage treatment.

No case studies are required – no written exams. Following successful completion of the practical assessment, you will receive your ‘Practitioner’s Certificate’ and insurance details, enabling you to use this treatment with the general public.

History of the Indian Head Massage

Indian Head Massage is an effective therapy. It has developed from traditional techniques practised in India as part of family rituals for over a thousand years. This massage works on particular areas of the body, especially the head, neck and the shoulders where stress affects major muscle groups, and it often brings immediate relief. Tensions are reduced and knots and nodules melt away. The efficiency of the circulatory and lymphatic systems improves, toxins are removed from tense muscles and flexibility and fluidity of movement is restored.

Benefits of the Indian Head Massage:

  • Relieves tension, headaches, neck and back pain
  • Lifts stress and promotes relaxation – a popular massage often requested for general well-being
  • Stimulates lymphatic drainage, helping to remove toxins and boosts the immune system
  • Restores joint mobility and improves circulation
  • Indian Head Massage reaches all energy centres where tension accumalates
