Indian head massage is an ancient art handed down through generations in India, as an integral part of family life.
Its roots lie in the medicine system of Ayurveda, which aims to promote health, beauty and a long life. Depending on the techniques used, it can relax or invigorate. This unit will teach you how to select the most suitable medium for your client to improve scalp or hair condition, and how to adapt your treatment according to your client. You will learn what is meant by the chakras, as well as how the body systems work.
This course supports the hands-on practical make up session tuition you can purchase from one of our satellite centres around the UK. Please visit https://www.phoenixhbnt.co.uk/ to see the nearest centre to you.
