Her study days are always very well organised with lots of information, put together so you can take it away with you.” Jo Jowett

    "I am pleased that I chose Mary’s Diploma in Indian Head Massage Course. Although the diploma is intense and you learn a lot, Mary has a way of making it easy and effortless to remember and understand. Doing the case studies was an enlightening process and wonderful learning for me.” Wendy Turner

    “I cannot thank Mary enough for all her encouragement, support and help in getting me started. Each time I attend one of Mary’s courses or seminars I come away feeling that I had learnt some new skills that I can build on and enjoy using.” Lesley Brown

    “I had a very interesting and fun day with Mary Atkinson looking at Adapting Indian Head Massage for the Elderly and Frail. It was a good revision day, and also gave us useful tips when working with very frail people. There was a good discussion about contra-indications, what was safe and not, and what we all felt comfortable with. We had some practice sessions too, and shared tips and techniques.” Sally Reynolds

Mary’s relaxed but professional approach is a great environment to learn in. She makes you realise that massage is as pleasant to give as it is to receive!” Jo Colby-Relf

    “Mary’s Indian Head Massage courses are excellent, and her expertise, enthusiasm and passion for Indian Head Massage is infectious. I passed the Diploma in Indian Head Massage earlier this year and have since attended Adapting Indian Head Massage for the Elderly and Frail. I hope she will continue to run more advanced Indian Head Massage training courses.” Annie Aulds

    First rate teacher and therapist. Genuinely lovely, warm person who radiates positivity. I would recommend her highly and frequently do! Glad I travelled to Chichester and spent three wonderful days training to do her FHT approved Indian Head Massage course - when clients tell me that I do an amazing IHM, I tell them I had a good teacher! I now want to do Story Massage! Sue Adlam
