Indian Head Massage on a Massage Couch Course

Indian Head Massage on a Massage Couch Course

Indian Head Massage is traditionally taught in a seated position however the techniques can be adapted so that the client can experience Indian Head Massage on a Massage couch rather than seated. Subsequently the IHM Massage on a massage couch course will teach you how to adapt your Indian Head Massage treatment comfortably for both you and the client while they lay on a massage couch.

This practical interactive course combines knowledge about how to set up and dress your couch following the correct client’s and therapist’s positioning. Particularly concentrating on developing new massage techniques and adapting your treatments accordingly to treat the individual needs of the client. You will understand how to adjust your posture for couch massage, techniques to work safely and efficiently with tips on how to protect your hands, thumbs, fingers and wrists.
