Learn Self-Care with Indian Head Massage

In these challenging times, we are all placing a lot more emphasis on self-care – for ourselves, our clients and our families. Following a run of successful courses, I’ve put together a pre-recorded 50 minute video on Self-Care with Indian Head Massage with the course content and notes.  It is fun, relaxing and informative. Details below.

“The video is excellent. It is the next best thing apart from seeing someone in person. The way you explain the moves is easy to understand and I feel would help my confidence and reassure I’m doing the right thing. Also your enthusiasm comes across which makes me feel enthusiastic too!”  Patricia Ashworth

Cost: £30

The video link will be emailed to you so that you can download it to your computer. It is also available on the Vimeo channel with password protected access.

The pre-recorded course is supported by notes and further information.

To purchase access to the video and course notes please email Mary on maryatkinson@clara.co.uk

Open to: Everyone can enjoy the video for self-care. However, if you are planning to share the techniques you must check you are insured to share them in the setting that you intend. The course is for personal development and is not a qualification.

CPD certificates: A certificate can be issued on request.

“The video is great. I did it last night and had an amazing night’s sleep. I am planning to show some of my friends on zoom tonight. Since everyone is struggling a bit this lockdown it will be a welcome treat!” Lola Fernandez

“Really confidence boosting.  And informative. I had some light bulb moments: you have a great warmth, sense of humour, and passion. IHM was something that has just been a now and again treatment for me.  Your sessions have inspired me.” Kerry Richards, Indian Head Massage Therapist

“I haven’t done IHM properly since my hairdressing training so it was lovely to do the self-care course and refresh.  It totally cleared my headache. I went into the bath and read my book afterwards. I felt really great and it made me realise the importance of self-care.” Lorraine Leveridge, former hairdresser

Course Outline

The pre-recorded course will cover:

  • History of Indian Head Massage for Self-Care
  • Relaxation techniques
  • Massage techniques for self-massage of back, neck, head and face
  • Using carrier oils (optional) as a hair treatment
  • Tips and ideas

You don’t need a ‘model’ as you will be enjoying the moves yourself. This also helps you to experience how it feels to be guided through a self-help session.

The pre-recorded course is designed to raise your confidence, and to inspire, support and enhance your skills and knowledge.

“I’ve just done my first online session showing a client how to massage her own head. I was a bit unsure but it went really well. She loved it and gave great feedback. Thank you, Mary, for all your support.” Angela Philpott, Holistic Therapist.
