Each branch of TCM, while sharing the same concepts, has its own art of technique and practice.

Indian Head Massage is a seated treatment based on the ancient system of medicine known as Ayurveda which has been practiced in India for thousands of years. Although in Indian culture the techniques evolved from traditional grooming rituals and focused primarily on the head, in the West Indian Head Massage has developed into a complete upper body treatment that includes parts of the body vulnerable to stress – the back, shoulders, upper arms, neck and head.
The Indian Head Massage Therapist uses a range of movements and techniques to improve joint mobility and flexibility in the neck and shoulders, relaxing muscular tension, increasing the flow of blood and lymph and aiding the elimination of toxins. Indian Head Massage is a truly holistic therapy that is deeply relaxing and has many physiological and psychological benefits.

Massage is the manipulation of superficial and deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue using various techniques, to enhance function, aid in the healing process, decrease muscle reflex activity, inhibit motor-neuron excitability, promote relaxation and well-being.

The reflexology practitioner training gives you a therapy in which you can treat a persons whole physiological and emotional being from working their feet and hands. The body has the ability to heal itself – stress, illness, injury or disease puts the body in a state of imbalance.
A reflexology treatment works on specific points on the feet and hands which correspond to organs, glands and structures of the body; these points are called ‘reflexes’ and by applying massage, finger and thumb-pressures and other techniques the body is encouraged to restore and maintain a natural equilibrium or homeostasis, balancing body, mind, emotion and spirit.
The feet and hands are ‘mirrors’ of the body itself and treatment of the reflexes activates the healing powers of the whole person. Congestion or tension in any part of the feet (or hands) is mirrored in the corresponding part of the body and through application of reflexology techniques the body can learn to relax and de-stress.
