What our students are saying

"The Indian Head Massage course was fantastic! The pace was perfect, the content was interesting and the techniques are beautifully simple, very effective and feel amazing. Though I had a lot of fun, my favourite part had to be the practice! During the class you both give and receive many wonderful massages - and you become VERY popular when your friends and family find out you need a ‘volunteer’ to receive massages for your case studies 😉 This class & certification provides an opportunity to start a business, expand your offerings or just enjoy personally. I definitely recommend this course!".

Dawn and Zoe are perfectly paired to lead this beautiful class side-by-side. Having the privilege to learn from them and be in their energy was an educational experience on all levels, emotionally, physically,

and emotionally.

The class was led in an extremely professional manner with excellent resources.

They were always ready to help in anyway with gentle guidance and positive attitudes.

The hands on section of the class paired with the written manual was highly educational. I finish this class feeling extremely confident and excited to share this new craft with my clients at west coast Esthetics Studio.

Thank you ladies you do an exceptional job sharing your knowledge and teaching others🙏"

"My experience in the Indian Head massage certification course was beyond phenomenal. With a perfect balance of practical and theoretical knowledge, Dawn and Zoe blend their light sense of humour and years of experience into a course that easily integrates into other healing modalities. I love how the course expanded on my knowledge of Ayurvedic medicine and the energy systems in the body and left room for intuitive techniques. I would recommend this course to anyone seeking to learn more about massage and energy work".
