What are the group sizes for each course?
Where possible we like to run courses with a minimum of 6 students as we feel that student interaction on a lot of our courses is important. However we are able to accommodate smaller groups when necessary and can also schedule dates for bespoke training for groups or companies.
Do I need to bring a model with me?
No, we can usually ensure that you have sufficient case studies for class work.

Students can pay for courses via cheque, BACS, paypal or cash.
Are treatment couches, equipment and creams etc included in the course? Do I have to bring anything and can I buy what I need afterwards?

Why is your Indian Head Massage Course 4 days long?

We have been teaching this course for over 20 years and each of the topics are covered in depth during the course with additional opportunities to improve the actual quality of the treatment with tutor’s guidance and support.
