Indian Head Massage Course

Stress that accumulates each day both physical and mental, can cause a weakness in the nerves and can impair circulation of the vital fluids to the brain and thus cause tension and headaches. The skull might feel tight and heavy and the brain is unable to function properly. The best, easiest and most natural way to relieve these symptoms is by Indian Head Massage. Vitality increases as the circulatory and respiratory systems open up to provide fresh oxygen and vital energies plus many other benefits.

This course is ideal to use as a ‘Chair Therapy’ provided by Hairdressers and Beauticians, and may also be conducted in the ‘workplace’.

Indian Head Massage Course Feedback

Linda Horton
Devon, England

Thank you so much for your very welcome email giving the result of my Indian Head Massage final exam! Have been on tenterhooks for the last few days but this news is well worth the nerves!

Am looking forward to receiving my diploma and I will be starting my practice at the Sunnydale Health Clinic in Ivybridge, Devon from the 7th September – just weekends to start with, then building up as I continue to study your Nutrition Course and others. I intend cutting down on my regular job until I can let it go altogether.

I am really enjoying my coursework with the School of Natural health Sciences and it’s doubly satisfying knowing that I can start a ‘new career path’ at 55!
