2 day Indian Head Massage Course

  • Indian Head MassageThis Indian Head Massage training course is very practical and no previous experience in massage is required. The course is an excellent introduction to a Swedish Massage training course. It is also a popular training course with therapists who wish to add to their skills. I have been teaching the course for over 20 years in the Edinburgh & Lothian area so a wealth of experience to pass onto you.

During the 2-day training course, I demonstrate the massage movements. After that, you will then get to practice on other students in the group. I break the learning down into small bite-size chunks before pulling it all together on the afternoon of the second day of training. I also focus on how to take care of yourselves and how important it is to do this, particularly from a posture perspective so that you don’t injure yourself.

You also receive the relaxing Indian Head Massage treatment from the other students in the group. A full treatment is massaging the head, neck, shoulders, back, upper arms and finish on the face with the client fully clothed and sitting on a chair.

After the 2-day Indian Head Massage Training

In addition to attending the 2-day training, you will complete 10 case studies at home. You need to do at least two Indian head massage treatments on each client. After that, you will return approximately 8-10 weeks later to carry out a practical exam. This requires you doing an Indian Head massage treatment on a client without referring to any notes. By carrying out case studies and returning to do a practical exam, it builds up your confidence so that you can then feel confident in charging clients for your Indian Head Massage treatment.

The course has been accredited by the CMA (Complementary Medical Association). Upon successful completion, students receive a CMA (Complementary Medical Association) Certificate in Indian Head Massage.

Indian Head Massage treatments are popular at Staff Wellbeing days, Women groups, Charity events and also at pampering parties as there is no need to bring a therapy couch. It is a popular treatment as the client remains seated and clothed. It can also be shortened to 20- 30 minutes which I provide details off as well as the 1-hour treatment.

  • 5***** review on Google for Indian head massage course

    Very enjoyable and in-depth Indian head massage course. As an absolute beginner with no experience in massage I was a bit apprehensive but Geraldine is so welcoming and friendly she put me at ease straight away. I had no idea there was so much involved with an Indian head massage and found it very interesting. There was lots of time for practising the techniques on each other and by the end of the course, I felt a lot more comfortable and confident to use Indian head massage on my friends and family as it has so many benefits. Geraldine is also a great host and made us some very delicious homemade soup and bread and kept us all well hydrated throughout the day with lemon water and selection of herbal teas and coffee. I would recommend this course to anyone who has an interest in Indian head massage whether it is to add another holistic therapy to your skillset professionally or whether you’re an absolute beginner like me.

  • Testimonial from Sue (Edinburgh) for the 2-day Indian Head Massage course

    Geraldine is a friendly, welcoming and professional, and a very knowledgeable, experienced and gifted teacher. She timed the weekend perfectly to cover all aspects of the Indian Head Massage routine in a very relaxed, well-paced way. I enjoyed the course very much. It was extremely practical and “hands-on”, and Geraldine handed out some useful background reading, with details of the massage routine to jog our memories for our case studies as we work towards the exam. I have no previous massage experience and Geraldine was very patient and helpful. I recommend the course 100%.


  • 5star Google review for the Certificate in Indian Head Massage training course
    Geraldine’s Indian Head Massage Course was great, I’ve learnt a wonderful new skill I can take away and practice on my case studies before returning for an exam & become qualified. Her approach to teaching is excellent and I’d definitely recommend / look into more of her course options!
  • Testimonial for the Indian Head Massage Training course 
    I was amazed and impressed at how much I’ve learned in two days. The combination of hearing and seeing how it’s done and then doing it and undergoing it proves very effective. I really enjoyed learning this skill and find it very useful. At the end of the course, I feel confident to start working on my case studies which will further prepare me for the assessment.

  • Testimonial for the Indian Head Massage course from Julie (Midlothian)

    Thank you, Geraldine.  I would like to say thank you for a fantastic weekend. I was made to feel so welcome and thoroughly enjoyed the Indian head massage course. Your teaching manner is both informative and patient. 6 students were the perfect number as we all had one on one time with you and time to practise on each other.

  • Fantastic training with Geraldine. Very calm, patient and thorough. Lovely demonstrations and encouragement when practising the techniques and she was very happy to go over things as many times as was needed. Would highly recommend the Indian Head Massage training with Geraldine.
