Learn how to do Indian Head Massage

Certified Massage Course for therapists

In this Indian head massage diploma course also sometimes referred to as Champissage massage, you will be taught everything you need to know to offer your clients a full and professional Indian head massage routine. The head represents our nervous system and crown chakra. This is the chakra we use to communicate on a higher and more spiritual level. This is why Indian head massage is considered one of the more beneficial complementary therapies yet works well on both a spiritual and practical level.

Indian head massage can also help with short-term memory difficulties. This is due to our brains getting overloaded with disorganised thoughts, which can make it difficult for us to efficiently ‘log’ and collect thoughts and occurrences.

Indian Head Massage slows us down, sensual awareness takes over, thoughts quieten and awareness is brought to the forefront. Think of it like someone pressing your ‘reset’ button.

Some of the things you will learn in this course are:-

  • Introduction to Indian Head Massage
  • History of Indian head massage
  • How to do Indian head massage
  • Indian head massage routine
  • Indian head massage techniques
  • Physiology & Anatomy of skin, skeleton, muscles and hair

I loved this course as it was really easy to understand. I have always been wary of taking an online course and worried about exams, however with all the help and support from the team and access to the student video library which was great I have now completed my diploma in this subject and could not be happier.Jenny Tyson – South Africa
