What is Indian Head Massage?
This traditional Indian technique relieves tension and can leave your hair looking luxuriant. Its effect is not just physical: it works on an emotional level too – soothing and relieving stress. The sequence incorporates massage of the shoulders, neck, scalp and face leaving a deep sense of inner peace and tranquillity.
The Indian Head Massage session is practised normally with the recipient sitting upright in a chair. During the session the recipient remains fully clothed, only removing any jewellery . Many enjoy the pleasure of regular sessions relieving the stress and strains of modern life.
Massaging the scalp and face has a profoundly calming effect; relieving areas of held tension and increasing the oxygen supply to the brain. The sequence relieves chronic neck and shoulder stiffness, improves blood and lymph circulation, relaxes the muscles of the scalp and face, relieves tension and headaches, gives a heightened level of alertness and concentration and promotes improved texture, strength and growth of hair. Indian Head Massage gives the receiver a deep sense of inner peace and tranquillity. The duration of each session need only be between 20 to 40 minutes
Indian Head Massage can help to:
- Diminish stress
- Increase your energy
- Balance the brain’s energy
- Reach a deep state of relaxation
- Reduce muscular & nervous tension
- Flush out physical & emotional toxins
- Release back, shoulder & neck pain
- Improve the strength of your hair
- Reduce headaches & eye strain
- Improve your immune system
As a stay at home mum for 7 years going back to study anything was very daunting. However, the helpful, friendly and caring teacher guided me though and made the experience a lot less scary. This course fit in so well with my family and other life commitments with the on-line study and then the 7 days of intensive training. I would highly recommend this course to anyone interested in massage.
thank you very much for the kind words, we were happy to have you
I was sincerely impressed by the Intensive Course of Holistic Massage by Natura Class. During this week everybody who have been practicing massage techniques became masseurs. With help of professional teachers I am aware now of basic massage routine, I understand which method of impact I need apply in a certain situation, I am confident in my actions towards the human muscles. For me this academy is a perfect place to study massage. Thank you for your approach, Natura Class Academy.
I chose to study Holistic Massage at Naturaclass because they offered possibility to study as a distance part of the studies and the rest in an intensive way in beautiful Malaga! That was absolutely best method for me as I was not living in Malaga! The intensive week passed really fast and we became professionals! The course exceeded totally my expectations! I found my path and I am going to take more courses later on. I really recommend to study at Naturaclass! Teachers are really professionals and dedicated to their work. School offers courses in english and spanish which is really nice! Thank you so much Naturaclass!
I recently completed the intensive holistic massage course which was excellent. Our tutor, Francy, was exceptional. Francy is totally professional in her approach to teaching and to the practice of massage. She is an expert in her field in terms of knowledge and skills and was very supportive and encouraging to us as students. The course was well organised and structured and designed to reinforce and develop your practical skills and understanding within a short timeframe. The course materials were also very helpful. This is an intensive learning experience and requires your total focus for the 7 days but I found it to be a very valuable investment in terms of time and money. My experience is that NaturaClass is a company with integrity dedicated to maintaining high professional standards in the practice and teaching of massage. Highly recommended.
I studied with Naturaclass for a 7 day intensive holistic massage course. I was given all the resources needed to help me, offered support from knowledgeable and inspirational teachers and I made some great friends on the course. Thank you for guiding me in my first steps to becoming a massage therapist - I will be sure to book a course with you again soon.
