Indian Head Massage Diploma

3 day course

This highly effective and popular therapy is based on the traditional form of Champi (head massage) that has been practised in Indian for over 1,000 years. Treatment includes massage of the upper back, shoulders, arms, neck, scalp, face and energy balancing. Clients do not need to undress, no special equipment or oil is needed, making treatments highly mobile and accessible. A full treatment takes 30 minutes – shorter sessions are also popular, eg on-site in offices, at exhibitions, and pamper evenings.
