Indian Head Massage Foundation Training

Indian head massage, otherwise known as Champissage, is a holistic treatment for the purpose of manipulating energy channels by massaging the head, neck and upper body. It is surmised that when energy is blocked from flowing properly, negative forces accumulate to cause common ailments such as; blocked sinuses, stress, hair loss and other aches and pains. Champissage, with its rhythmic cadence of movements, relieves and clears these blockages while re-stimulating energy flow.

Who Can Apply? Everyone!

Are you a carer, partner, hairdresser, student or newly qualified therapist, massage enthusiast or devotee? Then this training will appeal to you to increase your own personal and or professional growth and knowledge. There are no formal entry or participation requirements however, an initial familiarity and understanding of massage techniques is recommended.

“We are proud to offer you the opportunity to learn, practice and experience Champissage, through one-on-one training in our premier spa. With detailed instructions and hands on demonstrations for each stage, you will learn and acquire new massage and therapy skills” – Saroj

Training Structure
  • We begin with a 30 minute head massage. Your own lived experience is paramount here, you will transcend theory and actually put yourself ‘in your client’s shoes’.
  • The initial consultation process: care and individuality, not ‘out of the box’ treatments.
  • Assessing the contraindications.
  • Indian head massage techniques.
  • Aftercare.

For our Indian Head Massage training, please allow 4 hours.

Class Composition 

Prana Courses are a ONE-ON-ONE experience. This is because we do not believe that being part of a group or class with varying experience addresses your needs. Therefore, Prana Courses are an opportunity to interact directly with Saroj, our principal practitioner therapist, according to your own abilities and experience.

Cost: $395 

The course fee includes:

  • A four hour initial training session.
  • A professional training reference manual.
  • Certification upon successful completion of the training.
  • Access to online, ongoing student support and…
  • A further 30 to 45 minute refresher (to be undertaken within 3 months of your original session).

We accept cash, credit card (Visa, MasterCard, and American Express) or payment by direct deposit.

For Registration

Our training, like our treatments, is tailored individually to suit you by fitting around your work, study or family responsibilities. Contact us 0449 592 728 to arrange a day and time that suits you (rather like a normal booking).

Other Training

We are frequently asked “Do you provide other training?” The short answer is YES! We are dedicated Ayurvedic practitioners and mentors by our nature and philosophical beliefs of being ‘in service’. Again, just contact us 0449 592 728 to enquire about our other Ayurvedic foundation training.

Volunteer Information

To gain confidence and practice your skills, a friend to accompany you is especially valuable. If you can’t arrange someone for the 4 hour session on the day, please notify us and we will try to arrange a volunteer for you.

Pre-Training Reading

The 5 Key Principles & Benefits You Should Know About

Prior to Head Massage Training (for yourself and your volunteer)
  • Refrain from drinking any caffeinated drinks prior to the course.
  • Ensure that your hair is dry and it is preferable that your hair is unwashed the day before.
  • If you prefer to remain clothed during your massage, please ‘just a singlet’ to enable easier access to massage the upper back, shoulder and décolletage areas.
  • Only a ‘light meal’ is recommended beforehand.
Frequently Asked Questions

Hi Saroj. I would like to attend an Indian Massage course with Prana. Does attendance automatically grant me certification, and if not, what happens then? Do I have to pay to take the course again? Many thanks, Charlotte (Charlie) Manning.

Charlotte certification is based on my professional assessment of a student’s practical and personal skills… it certainly isn’t automatic, because that would not serve you (or your clients) well. However, should you fail, I will identify the areas you need to brush up on and advise you to return after you’ve had time to practice or fine-tune them. When you are ready to take the test again, I will allot you another 45 minutes (Free of Charge). Come Charlie, test yourself! – Saroj

Saroj, you are a respected beautician and very much loved so I hope you’ll forgive me for asking: how can Prana Course students possibly learn Indian Head Massage techniques in 3 hours? Surely there is more we as students need to know, understand, practice and perfect? Kind regards, Pippa.

Indeed Pippa, there is much to learn. Can one pass on the skills of a lifetime in 3 hours? No. But I urge you (as I do all students) to remember that “repetition is the mother of skill” and that practice, practice, practice is our foundation. Pippa we are all students of life. I urge you to begin your journey. It can only lead to more opportunity. – Saroj.
