1. Indian Head Massage: Learn The Techniques Of Indian Head Massage

As Indian Head Massage involves stimulating areas of the head, neck, shoulders, and face, it is important for practitioners to have an understanding of these areas of the anatomy before any massage techniques can be applied to them, and so this area is covered in the course materials.

More than just the physical act of massage, the Indian Head Massage course talks you through how to understand your client better and how using techniques, such as visualisation and various breathing techniques, can help to improve the client’s experience and enhance the benefit they get from the session.

The massage course also talks through how to set up a comfortable environment for the client, as well as how to treat specific clients.

Understanding Massage

The physical side of the massage, this part of the course talks you through the various techniques that can be employed and how each of them benefits the client, as well as the spiritual side of Indian Head Massage. This part of the course culminates in how to perform a basic Indian Head Massage using the newly-learned techniques.

Who would benefit from the course?

A dedicated section of the course also talks about the benefits of Indian Head Massage, when to use it, and just as importantly, when to avoid its use. Differing types of oils that can be used in massage are also discussed; explaining the different types of oil and the benefits of each.

2. Reflexology: Learn How To Enable The Body To Function Efficiently By Reflexology

Reflexology is one of the fastest growing holistic therapies now gaining worldwide acceptance. It is based on the scientific principle that every organ in the body is reflected in certain reflexes in the feet.

The feet are a microcosm of the human body. By manipulating the reflex areas on the feet, energy congestion in the body is released. Correct stimulation of the feet reflexes, while the client is relaxed, improves the energy flow and the blood supply.

This results in an overall feeling of well-being and this enables the body to function efficiently. Reflexology is a completely safe, natural aid to restoring the body's healthy balance.
