What is Indian Head Massage?
Indian head massage is based on the ayurvedic system of healing which has been practiced in India for over a thousand years. It provided families with relaxation and healing on a daily basis, as well as playing a part in rituals such as weddings and births, not to mention everyday events like a trip to the barber. It works by releasing the stress that has accumulated in the tissues, muscles and joints of the head, face, neck and shoulders.

We had a great time and for three days after the course, I realized how relaxed it made me feel. Doing the course together, we now both have the knowledge on how to do the head massage correctly and we will be able to use it when we have those "stressful days". We found Lynda's instructions and knowledge were fantastic, and we had a good laugh when doing the practical recap at the end of the day” Tonia 2011
“It’s not normally something I would involve myself with but it was a really good experience and something you could use anytime/anywhere. It was definitely a good thing to do with your partner” Following the course he said his hair had never felt so good in years from the oils, and he had really enjoyed the day as it was something really different that they could do together.

The course was great! For someone who hasn’t done much massage I found the way it was taught made it easy to learn. I liked the way that it was taught in stages, so that you got to see how it was done, and then tried it ourselves with assistance from Lynda. At first I wasn’t very confident, but by the time I finished I was very confident and really enjoyed the courseThe notes are great and make it easy to remember. I went straight home and tried it on my partner and he loved it" S Thompson, July 2009
