This treatment is done on a Massage Table and is not suited to a Reflexology chair.
This course will teach you the basics of working with the three
Ayurveda dosha's (Pitta, Kapha and Vata) and how to bring these back into balance through this ancient foot
treatment. This treatment is considered a tri-dosha balancing treatment.
This unique treatment, steeped in centuries of Ayurvedic ceremony is delivered with a copper bowl bowl and ghee (clarified butter). The treatment, also includes a combination of massage techniques that pin point the 6 marma points on the feet and lower limb as well as, the seven chakra regions of the feet.
Each student will receive 1 copper bowl made of three metals (zinc, tin and
copper) to use during the class, and to take home to use in their
practice. Additional bowls may be purchased at the course.
The combination of metals in the bowl has a powerful effect on
the body's energies, and is more effective than gold and silver on the various
internal organs and energy channels.
This instruction is simple enough to
absorb in one day, but powerful enough to bring relaxation and balance for a dramatic
shift in your client's energy.
You will receive a certificate of completion for your credits but at this time, no advanced certification is offered.

Prerequisites for Indian Foot Massage Training
While there are no pre-requisites for this training. It is good to have a strong desire to do hands-on body work and to consider adding other complimentary healing arts training like; Reiki and Chakra Balancing.
In this class you will be taught some basic anatomy and physiology on the area of the body you will be working on during the training. I highly recommend reviewing a version of the Anatomy and Physiology Coloring Book (found both online or at Chapters) for the lower legs and feet.
Indian Foot Massage just like Indian Head Massage is an excellent starting point for entering the healing arts but is also a sound training for those who are already well versed and trained in the healing arts.
These 3 Therapies are great services to offer in a Private Practice, Spas, Wellness Centers, Yoga Centers and Salons.
