The Indian Head Massage has been practiced in India for centuries before it became common as a massage treatment in all corners of the world. The massage balances the body, mind and energy system as it relaxes the muscles, realigns the joints, improves blood and energy flow throughout the body and eliminates toxins. This course provides you with the skills to perform the Indian Head Massage and understand the Ayurvedic concepts related to its practice. Scroll down to read our student testimonials.

"What an amazing course so very well put together and step by step instructions. By the end of the class you will be a pro". - Aaron Reed, LICENSED MASSAGE THERAPIST, USA.

"I truly enjoyed the Champi Massage Online Course because it gave me also a thorough and comprehensive background on Ayurvedic philosophy, lifestyle and medicine, without which, this massage technique couldn’t be properly understood, applied and mastered. The Indian Head Massage technique has been presented as a component of a recommended healthy lifestyle, as a means of prevention and/or cure or simply for relaxation. The comprehensive material was presented in a clear and very interesting way, leaving no room for misinterpretations. I enjoyed very much listening to the soothing voice of the narrator accompanied by the relaxing and invigorating background music. Now I can appreciate how powerful this, apparently simple, massage technique can be, if used correctly by respecting also the Ayurvedic principle of constitution referred to the receiver of the treatment. I am looking forward to include this technique into my health & well-being programs." - Patrizia Brunelli, COMPLEMENTARY AND INTEGRATIVE MEDICINE PRACTITIONER, HEALTH & WELLNESS COACH.

“I was really amazed at the amount of information this course offered and it is extremely detailed. I am hoping to start my own business from home and this course gives all the information anyone would need. Camilla has been so accessible and helpful with any questions I have had. I would definitely recommend anyone to take a course with Massage Around The World.”
Teresa from WINNPIPEG, MB.
