Indian Head Massage
Indian Head Massage is carried out in a 'regular' chair with the client fully clothed which makes it an extremely flexible and versatile therapy yet still amazingly stress relieving - ideal for corporate work, for clients who don’t want to undress or find it difficult to lie on a couch or for those ’impromtu’ situations - no need for special equipment or oil!
Course delivery - is in line with recommended Covid19 protocols:
Practical - will be a half-day session delivered face to face on each of the courses dates at our venue in Newport where numbers will be limited & PPE will be worn.
Theory will be delivered online – you will be given access to the tutorial approx. 1 week before the practical session
Prerequisite: You must have a minimum Level 3 body massage certificate i.e. swedish, holistic, aromatherapy or sports massage
