Escential Indian Head Massage

Indian Head Massage is a flowing sequence of non-invasive, relaxing and rhythmic movements that evolved from an ancient healing system and rich tradition of family grooming in the Indian culture. Our Escential Indian Head Massage includes the use of essential oil blends and energy balancing to enhance the experience and the results. A full session which is done with the client seated and fully clothed, can take up to an hour. It focuses on areas of the body that are most susceptible to stress and tension: the upper back and shoulders, upper arms, neck and of course, head. The effects of this session are both immediate and cumulative. It provides a well deserved break from busy lifestyles and encourages feelings of relaxation, balance and revitalization

The 2-day workshop is highly experiential with ample practical instruction, demonstrations and hands-on learning. It teaches the principles, techniques and movements of our Escential Indian Head Massage sequence; essential oils and aromatherapy as well as chakras are introduced in this workshop. By the end of the workshop, you will have given and best of all, received a full session! A Certificate of Attendance is awarded.

Workshop fee: $295.00 (+HST)
Dates:  Mondays, December 3 and 10, 2018 9:30 a.m.- 5:00 p.m. each day
