Indian Head Massage

Indian Head Massage originated from India and is a beautifully traditional practice that is now immensely popular amongst Western cultures. This is due to its simplicity and portability, that allows it to be utilised anywhere and everywhere, making relaxation and holistic wellness more accessible for everyone.

This class will teach you about the history and benefits of a Indian Head Massage Treatment. You will also learn the full Indian Head Massage Routine which can be performed either as an entire treatment, split into smaller taster treatments and can also be performed in a chair with the client fully clothed. Of course, you can add a touch of luxury by incorporating oils and creating a 'spa' like holistic therapy with the techniques.

After completion of this class you will be asked to provide 10 case studies (either 10 different people or 5 people, with two treatments). You will only be awarded your certification after you have submitted these case studies and feedback has been given.

As with all of our physical and energy therapies, once you have completed the home study part of the class, before you begin your case studies, you are welcome to book a 'training day' in with us which will be held in Glastonbury, Somerset. The cost of this face-to-face training is free of charge and this is not a pre-requisite of completing the course. If you'd like further information on our training days, please do not hesitate to Contact Us.


Upon successful completion of this course you will receive a Certificate of completion which is fully accredited with the IPHM and recognised for insurance purposes by Westminster Insurance.

For those who wish to obtain insurance cover to practice their new skills on the public, after you have completed this course, we will give you details on how to go about obtaining insurance through our insurer to ensure you are fully covered.
