Indie Head Massage Course


Indie Head Massage Certification

Western and Eastern Indie Head Massage Training Techniques

The Indie Head Massage Certification program is offered at The Willow Room.  I was trained and Certified as a Practitioner and an Instructor by the founder of Aliphatic Ambrosia, Sandy Rankin.  It was an honor to receive my Certification and continue my learning with Sandy, who has more than 20 years experience in natural therapy training.  Sandy took her Indie Head Massage training from Narendra Mehta.  Narendra, blind from infancy and trained as an Osteopath and Massage Therapist, developed and created the modern Indie Head Massage to include the upper back, shoulders, neck and face, recognizing that these were very important energy centers in the body, and that by treating these areas, the whole body could benefit.  Narenda Mehta was honored with MBE by the Royal Princess Ann at Buckingham Palace.

Indie Head Massage was originally developed by women who used different oils to keep their hair strong, lustrous and in beautiful condition. The British word “shampoo” originated from the Hindi word Champi. Champi or head massage has been practiced for over a thousand years in India as a tradition of family grooming.

IHM has been practiced in the UK and Europe for many years, utilizing the best elements of head and body massage. This therapy is particularly beneficial to people who are desk bound and experience pain and tension in the upper body.

The benefits of this treatment include helping to tone muscles, relieve stress, relieve neck pain and headaches, improve concentration and boost the immune system.

This course is a combination of both western and eastern techniques and will enable qualified therapists to offer an extremely effective and relaxing treatment for their clients.  The two day training includes specialized massage techniques on the upper back, shoulders, upper arms, face, head and scalp.  The techniques can be performed on a massage table or through the clothes on a chair, taken into the work place, health fairs, schools, etc.
