Indian Head Massage

This Level 3 qualification is an ideal first course if you are considering becoming a therapist and contains everything you need to practice Indian Head Massage as a fully insured therapist.

Indian Head Massage is also a great therapy to add to your portfolio if you are already a therapist. If you are already a qualified therapist with a valid a&p qualification, talk to Jackie@calminginfluences.com about the therapists course.

You don't need a couch or a special chair to give Indian Head massage so it is an ideal therapy to offer if you need to be mobile, and because the therapy can be carried out with the client fully clothed, so you can literally do it anywhere.

The course contains the following modules:-

 

History of Indian Head Massage
Indian Head Massage Techniques
Benefits of Indian Head Massage
Contraindications
Where and how to deliver
Balancing Chakras
Anatomy and Physiology
Use of oils
Setting up your work area
Health & safety
Indian Head Massage Routine
Case Studies

Course Duration

The course is carried out over two weekends, with 2 half day mainly practical tutorials. The first weekend in April/May, you learn the history of Indian Head Massage, Health and Safety, start the Anatomy and Physiology, learn the practical routine, and gain information to allow you to complete your case studies.

The two practical half day tutorials in June allow your technique to be checked, so any bad habits you have picked up are found and corrected, we will cover the assessment process, and have a mock practical assessment so you know exactly what to expect,. We will also have a mock written test so that you know what to expect in July, and cover completing the health and safety paperwork. During the weekend we will also be setting up our evidence folders.

During the third weekend, which is normally in July, we will complete our evidence workbooks, carry out 3 practical assessments, carry out a short multi-choice VTCT test and complete the set up of our portfolios so they are complete.

 

Assessment

You will be required to complete 15 case study treatments, there are 3 practical assessments, a short multi-choice test and you will be required to produce a small portfolio. Certificates will be issued by VTCT.
