Indian Head Massage Courses for students, newly qualified therapists, and devotees.
You too can master the art of Indian Head Massage. We offer you the opportunity to learn, practice and experience, one-on-one, the ancient art of Indian Head Massage (or Champissage as it is referred to in India).
Prana’s Courses teach you how to massage on the marma points of the scalp, shoulders, upper arms, neck, face and ears. And by introducing an Ayurvedic element into the massage (which works on the three higher Chakras or energy vortices): crown, third eye and throat – the body’s entire energy system is rebalanced.
Who Can Apply? YOU.
Trainees, newly qualified therapists and beauty-therapy enthusiasts should all look to both increasing their personal development. The former are sure to add another string to their bow with a resume that reflects the competencies they have and courses they’ve undertaken with reputable salons. The latter are only going to increase their own personal growth.
There are no formal entry or participation requirements – however, an initial knowledge and understanding of massage techniques is recommended.
My philosophy? Learn continually, practice daily… Saroj
Important Course Preparation
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 advise us and we will try to arrange a volunteer for you.
1. 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’.
2. The Initial Consultation process: Care and Individuality, not ‘out of the box’ treatments
3. Assessing the Contraindications
4. Indian Head Massage Techniques
Course Materials, Certification and Membership
As part of your training, we also provide a Comprehensive Manual to take away; a Certificate of Completion and Private Membership to our Student Login page (an essential resource for assessing your own and others’ progress).
Prana is located at 2A KEARNS CRESCENT, APPLECROSS WA 6153 (15 minutes from Perth CBD). For your convenience, we have Free On-site Parking.
For ALL of our Courses, please allow 4 hours.
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 therapist, according to your own abilities and experience.
HOW TO BOOK
Our Courses are ONE ON ONE, tailored to fit around your work, study or family responsibilities rather than oblige you to fit into groups with pre-determined dates/times throughout the year. ALL YOU NEED TO DO IS Call 0449 592 728 to arrange a day and time that suits you (rather like a normal booking).
We are frequently asked “Do you provide Other Courses?”. The answer is Yes. We are dedicated Ayurvedic practitioners and trainers by nature. Again, just call 0449 592 728 to enquire.
We accept cash, credit card (Visa, Mastercard, American Express) or payment by direct deposit.
teachers. students. when we care, our journey never ends
Experience is never finite, always gathered, honed and perfected. Like you, I am a student of life – willing to share my knowledge but also, always learning…
Saroj and Agnelo, I just wanted to email my feedback from my indian head massage course :) From the moment I walked into Prana I felt very welcomed and comfortable. I thoroughly enjoyed my Indian head massage course and learning not only the techniques but the spiritual side of things too. Saroj was 100% the right person for me to learn from for the way that I would like to run my business. Not just another beauty salon, but a place to experience healing, relaxation and comfort from the inside out. A true professional at what she does, Saroj has a peaceful and comforting energy about her which made it very easy for me to relax and take on board all of her advice. Thanks again for taking the time to train me in this amazing massage, I would not be able to do it without you! P.S Thanks Agnelo for your kind words at the end, you are very encouraging!
Agnelo would want me to thank you for your kind words I know, so do feel free to contact him, anytime. For myself, I must tell you that it was an added pleasure to share time with a person who sees and understands the very special nature of ‘soft’ skills (these set you apart of course, but go so far beyond being merely capable and efficient). You Helen, have recognised the difference: being truly, deeply, in-service to your clients. I am grateful to have played my part in this and wish you all the best. Saroj.
Saroj is a wonderfully warm and caring human being who sees the big picture. I was very privileged to spend some time with Saroj this year while she taught me the art of Champissage – traditional Indian Head Massage. She delivers her training with the greatest respect and integrity and offers loads of support during and after the training. I feel very blessed to have connected with such a wonderful healer and teacher. Thank you Saroj.
Karen at Rosemoon Spa
Karen thank you so much! I too am blessed to have had the opportunity to meet a most insightful health and beauty practitioner… you grasped the range of movements as well as the primary intent of Champissage very quickly. I hope you continue to practice this most rewarding of art-forms successfully at Rosemoon Spa. You will bring the benefits of Indian Head Massage to a much wider (and very appreciative) audience.
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 x
Hi Saroj. Thanks so much for your Indian Head Massage course… it has broadened my understanding of the ayurvedic principles so much and I now see that what I offer is so much more than physical healing. Thank you so much, Alyssa.
Alyssa, thank you. If I have passed on something elemental (almost spiritual) I am so pleased and I wish you every success! Do please keep in touch with me… we each are students of life, and learn from each other. Warmly, Saroj.
Dear 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.
