What is Indian Head Massage?

Indian Head Massage is based on the ancient Ayurvedic healing system using the upper Chakras and this tradition is still carried out in modern India today. A person born in India can expect to be massaged regularly from their birth to their death by members of their family.

The efficiency of the circulatory and lymphatic systems improves, toxins are dispersed from tense muscles and flexibility and fluidity of movement is restored.

The head, more than any other part of our body represents who we are. It is the centre of our nervous system, and home to our identity and intelligence. The Chakra at the top of our head (Crown Chakra) is the one we use to communicate with our higher self. If our head feels good, we feel good.

The Indian head massage course and routine you are studying does not use oils; however you can use them as part of your treatment. You can follow this course with our popular Natural Lift Facial Massage course, which incorporates a unique blend of highly effective techniques from Indian Face Massage.


Why Choose Indian Head Massage?

  • In a similar way to reflexology all the organs are not only linked to nerves in the feet but also to the head.
  • Ideal for those clients who do not like their feet being touched.
  • For clients who love their head being massaged this is an ideal course!
  • You will be working on the neck, shoulders, scalp and arms finishing with a lovely facial.
  • The routine takes half an hour and your client will receive a wonderful treatment benefiting them on many levels.

The massage to the head is not only very relaxing but you get to give the whole body an MOT releasing toxins and stimulating organs to work more efficiently.

  • This course is ideal for beginners with no massage experience or therapists looking to add this popular therapy to their existing treatments.
  • Relieves tension, headaches, neck and back pain, alleviates stress and promotes relaxation
  • Assists lymphatic drainage, removing toxins and boosting the immune system

Tutor was extremely knowledgeable in her topic knowledge and delivered the course with confidence and clarity. I would strongly recommend the training skills and I would definitely do another course. The day was a great success in my mind where we studied hard and had fun during the day. Adequate breaks to receive us and pleasant surroundings. Well done!

I have never done any kind of massage course before and was nervous. My tutor was friendly, helpful, professional and very very good at what she does! I was very impressed and feel I have gained massively from the whole experience. I would have no hesitation to use or recommend gateway to anybody.
