Course Accreditation

  • The European College of Reflexology and Massage post graduate Certificate.

The main aim of the Certificate in Indian Head Massage is to enable Learners to gain the necessary practical and theoretical skills in order to provide Indian Head Massage treatments.

This course is open to everyone; you do not need to have any experience and you can attend the course for personal and family use. However, in order to work on the general public, you must have completed anatomy and professional ethics (for our existing students you can attend this course as you are completing the anatomy and ethics alongside the award).

* Qualified Therapists will be given the option of sitting the FHT Certificate at no additional cost. You will need to submit treatment evidence and complete a practical/theory exam.

If you are a qualified therapist this will be an excellent treatment to add to your existing qualifications. 

The results are amazing. The treatment is calming and relaxing to both the therapist and the client. During the workshop you will perform a treatment and receive a treatment at least twice.

I just enjoyed every minute, I really didn’t think it was for me. As a reflexologist, massage is not really my preference…wow..loved it. Very clear delivery, relaxed atmosphere and lovely group. I will be back for more courses..any chance of a morning course???” Ann- Dublin.
