Indian Head Massage is a very popular and effective holistic therapy treatment. It is very easy to learn and so this course is perfect for beginners. This comprehensive head massage course guides you carefully through all of the traditional massage techniques for both seated and couch based treatment. It is, very simply, one of the most relaxing therapies you can ever experience. And because your clients can remain fully clothed (if they choose to) it's perfect for people of all ages and all walks of life.

 

This diploma course provides you with 1 full day of practical training where you will be taught a full range of techniques and sequences so that you can offer a deeply relaxing and rejuvenating treatment. You will be guided by your tutor through all of the treatment techniques and you will practice these upon your massage model.

 

At the end of the training day you will also receive an Indian Head massage treatment from the teacher... how good is that!

 

Our Indian Head massage practitioner training course includes everything you need to safely and professionally conduct a professional head massage treatment.

 

This course is ideal for the beginner or experienced therapist. So if you want to learn a new therapy or advance your existing skills then this is the course for you! You do not need to have any other qualifications or experience to participate with this course.

 

One-to-one tuition gives you the opportunity to focus upon individual requirements and the course will be tailored to your skill level and previous experience.

 

We arrange SOLO tuition for you at a date that suits you best.
