If you wish to practise professionally as a therapist using Indian Head Massage, you would attend the beginners course and then attend Stage 2. The 2nd stage of Indian Head Massage focuses on how you would practise as a therapist, including some additional, technical massage moves that enhance the basic Indian Head Massage routine. Stage 2 also includes an exam and case studies so that we assess to ensure you are safe and ready to practise as a therapist.
Indian Head Massage Diploma
Stage 2 is the Diploma course in Indian Head Massage. This is for you if you wish to learn this complementary therapy massage course to practise as a professional therapist.
This level will teach you how to work professionally as an Indian Head Massage therapist – either adding this to your current therapies or to establish yourself as a professional therapist with this life-long skill.
Indian Head Massage is also known as ‘Champissage’ (the Indian word for massage is ‘champi’).
This Ayurvedic approach to health treats the person holistically; mind, body and emotions. Ayurvedic Indian Head Massage is used regularly as part of this approach to health. Yoga, a balanced diet and meditation are also encouraged for optimum health and well being which is why we teach some meditation on the course too.
