What is Indian Head Massage? 

Indian Head Massage is a flowing sequence of non-invasive, relaxing, dynamic and rhythmic movements that evolved from an ancient healing system and rich tradition of family grooming in the Indian sub-continent.

A full Indian Head Massage treatment can take up to an hour and focuses on areas of the body that are most vulnerable to stress and tension, namely the upper back and shoulders, upper arms, neck, head, face and ears.  It is given over clothing while the receiver is sitting in a chair.

The effects of Indian Head Massage are both immediate and cumulative.  It can be very effective way of encouraging relaxation, and relieving symptoms of everyday stress.

About the course: 

The course (limited to eight participants) is highly experiential with lots of practical instruction, demonstrations and hands-on learning.  It teaches the principles, techniques and movements of an extensive Indian Head Massage sequence and gives a thorough introduction to the versatility and possibilities within it.  By the end of the weekend everybody will have given and received a full massage treatment.

For those who wish to unfold the Indian Head Massage more fully to support existing interests and professional skills, a certification option is available on completion of an additional practicum component* .

Who can attend?
