Indian Head Massage workshops

A one-day workshop in this traditional massage technique

Click here to go straight to the booking form

Indian Head Massage is a technique of manipulating soft tissues in the shoulders and scalp. The therapist uses a range of different massage pressures and rhythms to stimulate the head and neck area. A typical massage lasts about 20 minutes.

The combination of techniques used

  • aids the circulatory, muscular and nervous systems
  • stimulates arterial circulation, and increases venous and lymphatic flow
  • reduces stress and can induce a feeling of euphoria
  • frees knots of muscular tension and relaxes connective tissue
  • stimulates the skin and underlying nerve endings
  • aids in the elimination of accumulated toxins and waste products
Indian Head Massage is particularly effective in addressing the effects of stress.

Oxford School of Reflexology holds regular workshops in Indian Head Massage, where you can learn to use this traditional technique yourself.

The Workshop:

  • Maximum of six students per instructor
  • Minimum of four students per course
  • Clinic situation
  • Course workbook provided
  • Tea/coffee provided. And, of course, plenty of biscuits.
  • Held from 10.00 a.m. to 5.00 p.m approx.
  • All inclusive cost 80

In addition, if you need information on the qualification status of this workshop (i.e., does it allow you to treat as a therapist?) send a message to this address.

Please note that following customer feedback we have extended this very popular workshop to cover more of the underlying physiology and theory of massage, as well as plenty of hands-on practical work. The workshop is therefore longer than previously.
