Entry Requirements
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.

Examination System
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 a fee of £105.00 is payable for the VTCT assessment and verification.

Qualification Attained
VTCT Level 3 Certificate in Indian Head Massage.

Professional Insurance
Membership is available to the Federation of Holistic Therapists which offers insurance and other benefits for therapists in the UK. You may also join other organisations such as the Independent Professional Therapists International. Employment is available in clinics, spas, beauty salons and part-time freelance, working from home. The Manchester Therapy Centre has part-time work available on an ongoing basis for therapists in the Manchester area.

Further Information
The Indian head massage course includes ‘hands on’ training in Indian head massage. Course times are from 10.30 am to about 4.30 pm depending on the group size. The group size is kept at ten or below for individual attention.
You will learn how to assess the client and perform Indian head massage to a professional standard, plus the background knowledge necessary to setup in business. The Indian head massage certificate is recognised in many countries outside the UK and gives a good grounding for further qualifications in holistic therapies. The venue is at the Manchester School of Massage in
South Manchester.  In certain circumstances we may be able to offer a monthly payment scheme. Part-time work experience for students is available at Manchester Therapy Centre.
