Indian Head Massage Course

This course will teach you the skills that you need to know to offer a professional Indian Head Massage and this will enable you to add a service of wellbeing to your treatment list.

Indian Head Massage is a complementary therapy based on the ayurvedic system of healing which has been practiced in India for over a thousand years. Ayurvedic medicine is an ancient form of healing that arose in India and which is still widely used and available on the Indian subcontinent. Literally translated, ayurveda means the ‘science of life’ and, as such, it purports to be a total medical system that can treat mental, physical or emotional conditions. Indian Head Massage provides many Indian families with relaxation and healing on a daily basis.

The main reason for having an Indian Head Massage is purely from the sense of utter well-being that follows a treatment. This has to be experienced to be fully understood. We live in stressful times and head massage is one of the ways of alleviating tension and achieving a relaxed calm mind and body to aid concentration and help the whole body feel better.

This course covers the technique for upper back, shoulder, upper arm, neck, scalp and face massage. It also includes the theory behind Indian Head Massage such as the history of the treatment, principles of ayurveda, marma points and chakras.

This GTi Indian Head Massage course follows the National Occupational Standards. The GTi Indian Head Massage Award is accredited by the Guild of Beauty Therapists, the UK’s leading professional beauty trade body.

The course is written and accompanied by full-colour images and diagrams. Upon completion of the online theory modules, you will receive a PDF manual which you can refer back to. Seventeen of the modules and examinations are completed online with full online support available.

On completion of the course, successful students will receive a GTi Indian Head Massage certificate which is acceptable for insurance purposes with The Guild of Beauty Therapists.
