Family and Friends Workshop
Would you like to be able to provide a relaxing massage for a family member, friend or loved one but lack the confidence or skills to have a go? Would you like to learn more about why some massages feel OK and some feel fantastic? Learn about the energy of touch. Bring a friend or family member with you and share the experience!
You will learn:
- 50 massage techniques (photos and text are provided to help you remember them)
- How to create the perfect environment for a massage
- How to use oils to enhance relaxation and help with the health of hair
- To recognise contraindications for massaging (i.e. when to exercise caution or avoid massage)

This massage is a wonderful gift to learn because you can practice it anywhere, at any time. The recipient is seated and can be fully clothed.

- Reduce stress and increase relaxation
- Reduce tension in the shoulders and neck
- Find relief from sinus pain
- Reduce or eliminate headaches, migraines and eye strain

I thoroughly enjoyed Pam’s Indian Head Massage Workshop. Pam’s teaching style was interesting and easy to follow. There were so many different techniques and Pam ensured we were on top of each technique before moving on. The course had a lovely flow to it and I would highly recommend this course to all.
I was very fortunate to be a student of Pam’s Indian head Massage classes, you don’t realise how fortunate you are until the end of the day. Not only are you learning these amazing techniques to send someone to their deep blissful state, you too get to experience your own state of bliss, oh and I mean bliss. I thoroughly enjoyed the loving calming atmosphere of the class. It is a wonderful experience. Thank you for such a really beautiful and fun day.

My experience at Pam’s recent IHM course was quite incredible. Not only did I learn a vast array of fascinating hand strokes to improve my skills as a masseur, but I got to directly experience the feeling and benefits of IHM personally. I left the workshop feeling deeply nourished and very relaxed! The passion Pam has for practicing and teaching this modality flows through the very well prepared teaching style. Pam made the learning of a lot of information and techniques, seem simple and fun. I was deeply inspired by her passion and can still feel it flowing through me. The course notes are easy to follow and have been a useful reference for me since. Thank you for sharing your uniqueness through teaching.
I loved the Indian Head massage course. Pam was an excellent trainer and I learnt 50 techniques easily. The weekend was nicely paced and very relaxed and enjoyable.
