Indian Head massage careers

To train as a Indian Head Massage therapist will allow you to use a relaxing form of massage that focuses on reducing muscle tension in the neck, shoulders and scalp.

On thefitmap.co.uk, find out more about becoming an indian head massage therapist and practise what proponents claim as:

  • providing relief from headaches, sinusitis and eyestrain
  • helping promote hair growth
  • helping blood and lymph flow to the upper body

Whatever benefits is actually confers, it is undoubtedly one of the most relaxing and enjoyable alternative therapies available. While there is no statutory certification for an Indian head massage therapist, a Diploma course that leads to an ITEC qualification is the best route to go.

Taught over four days, a typical course will cover the following areas:
  • History
  • How it works
  • Effects and Benefits
  • Massage Movements and Techniques
  • Massage Techniques Explained
  • Structures of the Body
  • The Muscular System
  • Blood flow
  • The Lymphatic System
  • Body Mechanics
  • Client reactions
  • Contraindications
  • Adaptations
  • Aftercare Advice

Courses should be a combination of course work and supervised practice sessions. It is essential that for a hands-on skill such as this you leave a course confident in your skills and the ability to use them on clients.
