Introduction to Indian Head Massage
In this course you will use and adapt classic swedish massage techniques for treating scalp, face, neck, shoulders and upper arms. Indian Head Massage is an ancient ayurvedic healing system practiced all over India for thousands of years by everyday man and his family to royalty. It works on the areas of the body that are most affected by stress, however while the treatment is just on the upper part of the body it's effects are felt throughout the mind and body.
Indian families use massage daily both for relaxation and healing. They value the power of contact and enjoy the stress reducing benefits of touch. From an early age children are taught to give head massage so that each family member can both give and receive a treatment.
As the head holds many pressure points relating to the rest of the body particularly to the emotional centres in the brain, Indian Head Massage is particularly effective for emotional/mental stress.
This course is for those already qualified in anatomy & physiology and have learned some of the basic massage movements. We believe you need two days to truly get this level of treatment. The better your treatment the more clients you will have and the more clients who will stay loyal to you. Excellence matters, holism matters, energy balance matters.
