Indian Head Massage Level 1

Indian Head Massage Training – level 1 (beginners)

Stage 1 is the perfect way to learn Indian Head Massage – a soothing complementary therapy massage course which is a fun and informative experience for beginners.

This Indian Head Massage training course is taught over 2 days in Edinburgh. This massage course is an enjoyable 2-days where you will learn and practise the full basic routine of Indian Head Massage. The beginners level allows you to practise safely on family or friends. Or you can proceed to stage 2 to train for a formal qualification in Indian Head Massage accredited by IPTI.

No previous massage training is required to attend this course.

What you will learn

  • The history, background and the benefits of IHM
  • Chakra energy centres and a basic introduction to anatomy and physiology
  • Massage techniques – the power of touch (demonstration and practise)
  • The full, basic massage routine (demonstration and practise in stages)
  • An introduction to aromatherapy oils, crystals and colour for treatments
  • Precautions – general and contraindications for treatments
  • Self care for relaxation and balancing stress

This course runs for 2 days which gives you ample time to learn and practise the Indian Head Massage routine. Also included in the course is meditation which is a great tool to support your own self healing and help you feel less anxious about learning. At the course, students realise that there is the added benefit of receiving treatments throughout the weekend course – leaving them very relaxed and chilled by the end of day 2!
