Our work with Cocoro Charity has introduced us to many new friends, including Japanese therapist Mayu Yamamoto who visited our home in Chichester, West Sussex, with three friends – Ami Shibata, Manami Hara and Toshiko Yamaga.
Their stay began a visit to see the work of the complementary therapy team at St Wilfrid’s Hospice, ChichesterÂ where they were able to walk around the beautiful gardens, talk to some patients and carers and even watch ear candling in practice. Then it was time for a traditional English clotted cream tea at Belinda’s Tea Rooms in Arundel.
In the evening we were joined by fellow therapist, Rena Kato, who taught us several new rules for our favourite card games. We laughed so much that we played until much later than we had planned!
Indian Head Massage Course in Chichester
The main reason for the visit, however, was to attend my one day course Introduction to Indian Head Massage and learn some new techniques to use on family and friends. The therapists knew of my book The Art of Indian Head Massage which has been translated into Japanese and were keen to find out more. Course supporter was Sakae Fujiwara, a therapist and friend from London, who was able to demonstrate some of the techniques on me!
The morning began with theory and discussion of the history, benefits and contra-indications of Indian Head Massage. The afternoon was purely practical with the students working on each other, and experiencing first hand the deep relaxation that Indian Head Massage can bring.
Diploma in Indian Head Massage
It was a great joy to award certificates to students, three of whom are hoping to return to Chichester to attend my three day FHT accredited Diploma in Indian Head Massage.
