TIBETAN ACUPRESSURE HEAD MASSAGE

For the first time in Scotland. This is a one-off opportunity to learn this
fantastic therapy.

Tibetan Acupressure Head Massage is not another version of Indian Head
Massage, it is a completely unique therapy, which draws on the ancient
wisdom and philosophies of Tibetan Ayurveda. The therapy is performed with
the client fully clothed in a reclining or lying position. This can either
be on a treatment couch, a reclining chair or on the floor and includes
massage of the scalp, face, neck, throat, shoulders and upper arms. The aim
of the treatment is to make a positive change in the recipient's energy
system. The course is accredited and recognised by most of the professional
organisations, including the FHT , AoR, IPTI. Babtac and H&L Balen.
Effective both as an hour-long treatment or as a 15 minute 'taster' giving
the therapist more commercial scope.
Deeply relaxing to receive
Comfortable and effortless to give
Economical - no expensive equipment required
Holistic - brings balance and harmony to the mind, body and soul and
supports the body's natural ability to heal itself.
Blends well with other therapies such as Indian Head, Reiki, Massage,
Aromatherapy, Hopi Ear Candles, Holistic Facials and beauty treatments.

Suitable for beginners or experienced therapists, including Reiki
practitioners, holistic therapists, beauty therapists and spa technicians.

Thank you for this Mariette.

I am doing Slavic massage with Ronnie at the end of june but the rest of the info is handy to know.

Like you said in another post there is a dearth of courses in Scotland. I look at the S.E.E.D courses as I would like to do some study for the treatment of people who have/had cancer as this is a subject close to my heart but again it is the cost to get there and stay etc.
