Indian Head Massage Refresher Course Outline

The aim of the session is to share techniques and ideas – some familiar, others new – which can be adapted and used to suit the individual needs of each client. Above all, the session is designed to raise your confidence, and to inspire, support and enhance your own personal approach to Indian Head Massage.

If you wish to have a someone to practise on during the session (from your bubble) then this great, but you can do most of the moves on yourself too. If you wish to use your own oils that is fine, but you do not need to use any.

As a trained practitioner, you will have developed your own selection of moves. The intention is not to replace these, or to offer a set routine, but to gain from sharing experiences and suggestions.

Please let us know if there are any particular topics you would like to discuss. We plan to cover:

  • History and versatility of Indian Head Massage
  • Use and application of carrier oils
  • Relaxation and breathing techniques
  • Emotional Protection
  • Top techniques for Indian Head Massage – back, shoulders, arms, neck, head and face
  • Q and A

Many thanks Mary and Bridget for the Indian Head Massage refresher course tonight. It was very enjoyable and informative and has helped boost my confidence in getting back to massage. Lovely meeting you all tonight. Sue Burley
