The primary outcome of the VTCT Level 3 Certificate in Indian Head Massage is to prepare you to enter the beauty and complementary therapy sector as a specialist massage therapist. All the units in this qualification relate directly to the specific skills of providing Indian head massage treatments.
Overview & Modules
This vocationally related qualification includes all the required elements to develop your practical skills.
The four mandatory units include the practical and theoretical knowledge required to provide Indian head services and monitoring and maintaining health and safety practices in the salon to ensure all treatments are carried out with health and safety as a priority.
