INDIAN HEAD MASSAGE is a 4000-year-old therapy that treats the person on 3 levels; the physical, mental, and subtle. The modality is a combination of the traditional Indian head massage moves originating from India along with non-traditional moves given to the face, neck, upper arms, and shoulders. An Ayurvedic element of the work is done on the three higher Chakras (Visuddha, Ajna, and Sahasrara), which can help to assist the body's energies to rebalance. The delivery of a hair and scalp conditioning oil at the end of the treatment is completely optional.

This unique and ancient massage is done while a client sits fully clothed in a comfortable low back chair. It is the most versatile of all massages out there. Simply said, this massage can be done anywhere you can set up a chair for your client to sit on and receive this treatment. 

In the three-day intensive course, Lee-ann Harder, (tutor of this therapy for 12 years) will provide a comprehensive grounding in the theoretical basis and practical application of Indian Head Massage. Students will be able to use the technique as a principal or complementary part of their professional practice.

  • The course includes three days of practical instruction and a very detailed workbook with pictures.
  • An attendance certificate will be awarded at the end of the course, which allows students who qualify to collect continuing credits.
  • For the optional additional certification you must complete the practical homework and case studies.
  • Do be sure you have people to practise on daily while attending the course and immediately after.
  • This treatment has a small energy-balancing component in addition to the hands on physical application.
