Indian head massage is an extremely effective, relaxing therapy that has evolved from traditional techniques practiced in India as part of family rituals for thousands of years.
The treatment involves massage to the upper back, shoulders, upper arms, neck, scalp and face with the client remaining in the upright position. It is thought to increase the efficiency of the circulatory and lymphatic systems, and so eliminating toxins and dispersing tension from muscles.
This course is ideal for beginners with no massage experience or therapists looking to add this popular therapy to their existing range of treatments.
You will be provided with a course manual at the start of the day, together with a link to a supportive video, in order for you to consolidate your learning at home.
