This is a two day workshop, offered over one full weekend (Saturday and Sunday).  Your tutor is Karen Middleton.  On successful completion of this course you will receive a certificate in Indian Head Massage.  Indian Head Massage is a powerful stand alone relaxation therapy, and also a perfect addition to many other body work therapies. 

It is therefore a great therapy to learn as a beginner, as a new therapist or for experienced therapists.


 Because of the close working relationship between the upper arms, upper back, shoulders, neck, head, face and ears, Indian Head Massage has been developed to work on all these tension carrying areas.  By working in this way, the whole body benefits physically, mentally, and emotionally.  Through relaxation and the gentle working of the fascial connection, other systems of the body are encouraged and supported to function more effectively.

You will receive a certificate of attendance at the end of the workshop.  To work on the public and charge for your services in Indian Head Massage, you are required to gain the Practitioner Certificate. This can be done by completing written assignment, and practical and written case study component.  You will receive the link to this material at the weekend workshop. Once this work is completed it is submitted to the tutor.  On successful fulfilment of all the criteria the Practitioner Certificate will be emailed to you.
