Indian Head Massage therapy is a relaxing form of therapy that concentrates on reducing muscle tension in the neck, shoulders and scalp. Practitioners believe that it can help provide relief from problems as diverse as headaches, sinusitis and eyestrain, help promote hair growth, help blood and lymph flow to the upper body, and improve your sleep.
There are no statutory requirements to practice as an Indian head massage therapist, but a Diploma course that leads to an ITEC qualification is the recognised qualification within the industry.
A typical course will run over four days, and 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.Most Indian head massage therapists are self-employed, with earnings ranging from ?20 to ?45 an hour depending on location and clients.
