This course is structured over one day and runs from 10am – 4pm. We ask students to arrive at 9.45am to ensure a prompt start. You will learn the theory of the treatment firstly, and spend the majority of the day practising your practical skills, with a short break for lunch. You will give and receive treatments as part of this course.
The Indian Head Massage treatment concentrates on areas most vulnerable to 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, oil, floral waters or astringents depending upon the requirements of the client. 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.
Course entry requirements
Our courses are suitable for complete beginners and do not require any prior learning to be able to train with us; many of our students are not yet beauty trained and are looking to start up a business in the industry. We welcome students of all abilities, whether you are looking to learn a new skill from scratch or currently working as a therapist and looking to refresh your knowledge of particular treatments.
It is usually recommended that you have completed some previous training in massage before undertaking this course to enable you to gain most from the training, however this is not essential and can be studied as a standalone course.
All products and tools are provided for the training day at the centre when you attend. No kit is required to complete the training day, nor included in the course fee. On the training day, you only need to bring a hand and bath towel for your personal use, completed enrolment form and cold food for your lunch (e.g. sandwich/salad).
