The Indian Head Massage Diploma is taught in the style and with the ‘holistic’ approach that is at the core of all Meridian Courses. You will learn to work with traditional Indian Head Massage techniques, that are adapted to meet the individual needs of clients. We encourage you to acknowledge and work with the ‘whole’ person - the mind, physical body, emotional self, as well as the more subtle energies. We encourage you to work ‘with’ your client, not ‘on’ your client and using your intuition, work form the heart. Indian Head Massage appears to have a calming or invigorating effect, support stress relief and can be used to work complementary, alongside other forms of hands on, or medical treatments. It is a very versatile treatment and requires minimum ‘specialist’ equipment.
The Indian Head Massage Diploma - is accredited by the FHT (Federation of Holistic Therapies). The FHT is the UK and Ireland's largest Professional Association, supplying membership and insurance, for complementary therapists. For more information visit www.FHT.org.uk
