The Best of Indian Head Massage – 4 CE hours Based on ancient Indian scalp massage, this technique has been practiced for over a thousand years. The massage is calming yet revitalizing and is a valuable technique for improving concentration and combating stress that can appear in the form of migraines, tension headaches, hair loss, psoriasis or eyestrain.  It supports the nervous system by alleviating stress, encouraging the elimination of toxins and increasing oxygen uptake in tissues. Indian Head Massage encourages deep relaxation and boosts hair health, improves concentration by enhancing blood flow, calms the mind and eases emotional stress. This course consists of over 30 strokes for the scalp and face. Strokes are delivered in traditional Indian Head Massage style with the client fully clothed and seated in a chair. Participants learn not only the best of traditional seated Indian Head Massage techniques, but also how to adapt the strokes to every day table work. In addition to live hands-on demonstrations, PowerPoint presentations guide students through step-by-step instructions while practicing the techniques. Although oil is recommended for the scalp massage, it is optional. The instructor provides Solavedi organic oil for use in class.
What to Bring and Special Instructions:  One set of linens.  Please have clean hair and use no hair products on the day of the class. Dress comfortably.  For the table segment it’s best to bring a tank top or spa wrap to change into.
