Our Indian Head Massage Course will teach you a specialised massage technique that works on pressure points to stimulate the movement of blood, lymph and oxygen in the upper body. Not only will you learn how to competently perform the treatment, you will also learn the history of this massage medium and the benefits of the treatment, incorporating chakras to restore the body’s natural balance.

  • Health, safety & hygiene
  • Consultation techniques
  • Contraindications
  • History and benefits of Indian Head Massage
  • Physical effects of the treatment
  • Massage mediums
  • Massage movements
  • Practical tuition on performing Indian Head Massage, massage of the upper back, shoulders, neck, upper arms, scalp and face
  • Aftercare advice

This course is structured over one day and runs from 10am – 4pm. We ask students to arrive at 9.45am to ensure a prompt start. You will learn the theory of the treatment firstly, and spend the majority of the day practising your practical skills, with a short break for lunch. You will give and receive treatments as part of this course.

We do not include any kits within our training courses, however we provide all products and tools required to complete the practical training on the day, at the training centre for you to use. We took this approach following student feedback so that students are not tied into specific kits or brands of products as part of their course fee, before they are trained and able to make an informed choice. Our training courses teach the generic treatment techniques and processes, they are not brand specific.

We recommend attending training where you will gain advice about different brands and suppliers to enable you to purchase products from your chosen supplier directly following your training. We do offer selected starter kits available to purchase through our website & supplied directly from the supplier to you by courier.

The Indian Head Massage treatment concentrates on areas most vulnerable to tension: the scalp; face; upper back; neck and shoulders. These are all areas that are strained day-to-day but rarely receive appropriate attention, causing stress to build in the body. Indian head massages can be carried out using dry hands, oil, floral waters or astringents depending upon the requirements of the client. This particular massage is an ideal treatment for many stress-related problems and can be carried out over clothes if required. During the treatment, chakras or energy centres of the body are worked on restoring harmony and balance and leaving the client feeling revitalized.

Our diploma courses are suitable for complete beginners and do not require any prior learning to be able to train with us; many of our students are not yet beauty trained and are looking to start up a business in the industry. We welcome students of all abilities, whether you are looking to learn a new skill from scratch or currently working as a therapist and looking to refresh your knowledge of particular treatments.

It is usually recommended that you have completed some previous training in massage before undertaking this course to enable you to gain most from the training, however this is not essential and can be studied as a standalone course. 

All products and tools are provided for the training day at the centre when you attend. No kit is required to complete the training day, nor included in the course fee. On the training day, you only need to bring a hand and bath towel for your personal use, completed enrolment form and cold food for your lunch (e.g. sandwich/salad). Tea & coffee are provided on the day.

We are so proud at The Beauty Academy to work with such a professional, passionate and friendly team of tutors, all of which hold a Level 2 and Level 3 qualification in their specialised sector. Our tutors are also all qualified with either Level 4 PTTLS or equivalent teaching awards in education, with years of experience in beauty-related professional industries. Furthermore, our tutors who are involved in the assessment process all hold an Assessors Award.

We pride ourselves on the welcoming nature of our tutors and their ability to engage, educate and enrich students from all ages and backgrounds. All of our tutors are dedicated to maintaining their knowledge and keeping up to date with the latest treatments and techniques in the ever-changing industry.

If you would like to read more about our fantastic tutors individually, please have a look at our Meet the Tutors page.

When you have successfully completed your training course(s), you will receive a diploma certificate issued by The Beauty Academy and accredited by ABT.

Once you have completed your practical training day with us, there is no additional work to be completed. Your diploma certificate will be sent to you within 1-2 working days and you can then begin working from home and/or mobile, once insurance has been obtained.
