I am honoured to teach the Indian Head Massage at School of Bodywork. This profound therapy is wonderful to both give and receive. I have been practising Indian Head Massage for over 10 years. Working in diverse settings such as care homes, youth clubs, a family centre, festivals, chiropractic clinic and as a mobile therapist.  Indian approaches to health and well-being fascinate me.

Indian Head Massage is portable, adaptable, accessible and a deeply rewarding therapy to practice. Students have commented how good they feel after giving the treatments. Clients often comment how much younger they look, hence this is a great marketing tool! This profound treatment often facilitates an emotional as well as a physical response in clients, which deeply enhances well-being.

We are more stressed and less in touch with our bodies spiritual and emotional needs than ever as a Nation. So no wonder Indian head massage is growing in popularity!”

I loved the Indian Head Massage Diploma, I especially enjoyed the Marma point and Chakra work. Great to learn the traditional way with oil too. Fantastic, very thorough course, more detailed than other courses I looked at. The tutor was sensitive to our individual needs and brought out the best in everyone. I would definitely recommend School of Bodywork to anyone looking to study massage of any kind.
