A certificate in body massage is preferred but not essential. The Indian head massage course does not cover basic anatomy, physiology or massage.
If you wish to come onto the course without a background in these subjects you will be expected to work in your own time with the help of homework which will be provided by the school.
Previous experience in massage or attendance at an introduction to massage weekend prior to the course is necessary if you are not working towards or do not have a massage certificate. We can also arrange individual tuition in basic massage techniques.
Continuous assessment by means of written homework, assignments and home practice. Home study and practice is over a minimum period of three months following the school attendance days. A final assessment date is arranged after the home study period. Please note that an additional fee of £105.00 is payable for the VTCT assessment and verification, this is to be paid in cash on the first day of the class.
