Indian Head Massage Course – Swords

Indian Head Massage is a relaxing treatment applied to the head, neck, shoulders and arms. It reduces muscle tension, stimulates circulation and helps alleviate headaches and eye strain. This Course teaches a specific connect-in technique which is applied to the shoulder, neck and arms, mobility work on the scalp and acupressure points on the face and ears.

Approximately 75% of the course time is devoted to practical techniques. The theory component includes a review of anatomy and physiology, different oils that can be used in Indian Head Massage, the structure and growth cycle of the hair, the position of the Chakras and an understanding of the three Doshas.

This is a versatile treatment as it does not require oil or equipment. It is particularly suitable for corporate or on-site events.
