Indian Head Massage treatment concentrates on areas of tension: the scalp; face; upper back; neck and shoulders. These are all areas that are strained day-to-day but rarely receive appropriate attention, causing stress to build in the body. Indian head massages can be carried out using dry hands and oil. This particular massage is an ideal treatment for many stress-related problems and can be carried out over clothes if required. During the treatment, chakras or energy centres of the body are worked on restoring harmony and balance and leaving the client feeling revitalized. You will learn the important health, safety and consultation considerations to ensure you are able to deliver industry standard treatments that meet the specific therapeutic needs of a wide range of individuals.
