The aims of this workshop are to introduce the basic massage movements to be applied to the head, neck, shoulders and upper back; contraindications and basic theory. It will give learners the opportunity to gain theoretical and practical knowledge with plenty of 'hands on' learning. Written handouts that describe the massage routine will be available but bring a pen for any additional notes. These massage techniques will be performed over clothes, therefore it is recommended that learners wear lose comfortable clothes, preferably an old top or t-shirt as a small amount of oil or cream may be used on the neck and scalp. Indian head massage techniques may help relieve muscular tension, promote relaxation and improve hair condition.
