The Indian head, neck, shoulder, face and ear massage is becoming increasingly popular and sought after in the West. Colleges and therapy centres now regularly feature the treatment along with more established complementary therapies. The aim of this textbook is to guide the many therapists and student therapists through both the practical and theoretical aspects of Indian Head Massage, providing both Eastern and Western approaches to the treatment. "Authentic Indian Head Massage" can by used as a comprehensive reference text for students to practice the therapy. In addition, the book is intended as a support to various examining boards available in local and national training institutes for Indian Head Massage. In particular, the book covers core syllabus material in the CAT (Confederation of Ayurvedic Therapy) Diplomas which are regulated by The Confederation of Indian Head Massage, VTCT and Edexcel B/TEC. Other examining and awarding bodies are likely to expand into this field, and the text should be comprehensive enough to support any future syllabuses on the subject.
