Hi geeks

I am not trained in massage but may decide to in the future. There's a training provider near me that offers VTCT Indian head massage training (which would count towards my Level 3 should I decide to do it).

It's a service I've always wanted to be able to do, but now I'm in business and have spent so much on other training and products I also have to be realistic and consider whether it's viable in a business sense!

- How many people do you get who just want IHM?
- Do you offer it as an add-on to facials etc?
- How long are your IHM treatments and, if you don't mind sharing, what do you charge?

I was thinking it would be a good special offer - free Xminute IHM with your facial - but it will also have to work as a treatment in its own right.

Any advice appreciated! x

Hi

I offer IHM as an add-on to my facials and also as a treatment in the workplace, which I have found to be very popular as it doesn't involve having to lug a massage chair around with me. The workplace treatment is usually 15 mins and for a home treatment then it is 45 mins plus consultation. Charges vary in the workplace but I charge £30 for a home treatment which includes an oil as I work on the client's back, neck and shoulders too. For the facials, then it is included in the cost of the facial. I did the VTCT course (few years back now) and found it very thorough - i really enjoyed it.

I LOVE giving Indian Head Massage and most weeks it is my most popular treatment.

I do it a few different ways - I do have an on-site chair so I can do it at events and in the workplace (through clothes, no oil) but my absolute favourite is on a massage bed.

It's a great add on to a facial but it does stand alone as a face massage, head massage and then turn over for a back, neck and shoulder massage. I do this as a 45 min (ish!) treatment with oil and I charge £18. I am mobile and have a treatment room at home.
I also do this at Pamper Parties (very popular) and get lots of great feedback about it.

It's always a great little add on to anything & if you take a stall at a fair for example.

Let us know what you decide and how you get along

I did the VTCT course about 8 years ago and I learnt to do back neck shoulder and face massage, as well as the scalp and chakras and relevant A&P. The course was six months as we had to go away and do case studies as well. We learnt it with oils (although I don't use them for the office IHM). But I'm not sure if it has changed since then though.
