Indian Head Massage is an ancient technique, featuring in the Ayurvedic medical texts dating back 4000 years. Its philosophy, among other things, is that by creating balance and harmony, a state of wellness will result.

Indian Head Massage is a very popular modality within the Natural Health Support Services (NHSS) industry – with qualified practitioners, therapists and counsellors using it with wonderful success. The techniques is not manipulative in any way and is very relaxing. It focuses on the upper back, upper arms, neck, scalp and face; but the effects are felt throughout the body. By stimulating zones in the face and head, the whole body is rejuvenated.

Unlike other techniques, no equipment is required to give a treatment. The receiver remains fully clothed and is seated in a chair. It is not necessary to use oil and no-one is left looking dishevelled with greasy hair. A quick comb through and all is back to normal.

The technique can be utilised in a variety of situations and works well with most other therapies. A full treatment takes about 30 minutes and it can be effectively used in the home, the workplace and the treatment room.

The course is primarily ‘hands-on’ and includes a comprehensive, illustrated 90 page manual for the student to peruse at their own leisure.

This workshop runs over 2 full days. Students receive a manual and Certificate of attendance. A certificate of competence can be attained after relevant case study work and a practical assessment is completed.
