Module 1

HelloSmile I am back. I liked that you spent time explaining why you created heavenly head massage. I always like when at the end of massage I get extra minutes of head massage. It is a nice way to end a massage. I, myself, do it almost always at the end of a massage. I didn't have any problem with technique and my model didn't complain and calmly laid down and enjoyed any kind of attention.

Module 2

Hi ūüôā My experience with chest massage is almost zero. I wasn't taught and I never got a chest massage before, specifically around the sternum. So this part is new to me but also I am very excited to learn. This module technique wasn't hard. Most work I had to do was synchronize breathing, making sure not to over do, hit the space between the ribs gently.¬†

Most therapists have no experience and have not been taught much, if anything, about chest massage. That's where this course comes in! Smile

Module 3

Hello Shama. When I started watching my first thought was how about women with breast implants. I know now they are so much better quality then they used to be but still. And when you started doing a technique that massages the armpits ,a thought popped in my head that this technique should be skipped if a person has removed lymph nodes. I had few models and both were womens so some techniques I had to imitate, however they liked them. Some places were ticklish for them, some painful, some just sensitive.

You can always take such things into consideration. However this is not a strong massage for the armpits but rather a gentle moving the tissue around a bit.

Regarding the implants, again you can take that into consideration and either skip a technique or do it in a gentle way. None of these techniques should be done so strongly that they cause any discomfort or danger. They are meant to be quite gentle and feel good. They are not like Thai Massage techniques where you are trying to stretch people.

Module 4

Hi. When I was watching a video the WAVE technique looked really relaxing. And later my model confirmed it when I got a better hang of it and tried to do it more fluently. Of course, the start of learning this technique was... challenging. Every step had its own nuances that I had to practice. I think the most time I spend on it is getting my body to match the rhythm with hands.

Other techniques weren't hard but still useful and would be used in future.

So I guess you are working on the floor if you can do the WAVE technique. That's the only technique of Heavenly Head Massage that doesn't work on a table. And yes, this one takes a little time to figure out, but it is a very unique technique and very effective.

Module 5

Hello. With the first technique I needed to get used to rhythm and when to change hand position and also not to hurry up so I wouldn't shake up my models head or drop. But it didn't take a lot of time till I got it. Also, I like the ulterior motives Laugh Other techniques were easier and all time while I was practicing I repeated to myself - slow and steady.

Module 6

Hi Shama. Ohh.... My models love big neck roll especially when I learn how to do it. Of course, the small neck roll also got approval when I practiced on my models. I think they liked the stretch of those techniques.

I, myself, notice that I need to be steadier and not shake head. Especially when I do technique #2 and trying to get my hands in the starting position. But practice makes it perfect so I keep practicing.

You observed this correctly. For these techniques you need a very steady hand. You learn this best by doing the techniques slowly. That's when you feel this the most.

Module 7
Hello. Oh for sure, this technique was hard to learn. I still mess it up every other move or don't get my position right so my back won't kill me. So naturally the next technique also isn't perfect. It is hard to do circles. Other techniques weren't hard to follow and learn but the first two were. Thank god that my model was patient. When trying 90 degree neck stretch my model expressed little discomfort, but I am guessing that was because of her long hours working by computer.

Module 8
Hi. My models liked sideways neck undulation a lot. Good that none of them get sea sick. However, I had some bumps with figure 8. I don't know why but I get confused and end up doing some kind of nonsense. I try to learn and I hope that with more practice I will learn it. Good thing is at least alternative figure 8 I was able to learn. With other techniques I got hang on it pretty quickly.

I know, some of those techniques take a while to understand and learn. Just re-watch the video and with some more practice, you will get it!

Module 9

Hi Shama. This module was interesting for me and my models. As they confess, it was their first time that someone did an ear massage for them and it felt new but pleasant. For me, including ear massage, is also new. Just like with chest massage, ear massage wasn't taught when I studied. So, I was very intrigued with this module. Technique wasn't hard to follow and learn so it was fun practicing and learning.

Ear massage is a new experience for most clients, and typically they like it.

Hello. All techniques weren't hard to follow and learn. Some were vaguely familiar, others just know from regular using - shampoo technique. Of course, my models loved it and asked not to stop. And after, they said that they felt lighter.

Module 11

Hello. Of course, I wasn't very comfortable pulling my models hair but after their confirmation that it is okay I tried. I assume that if client is bold you don't have to try this Laugh Aside from that, everything went well while practicing. And also tried to do a short head massage from techniques that I already learned. It was interesting.

Maybe 'pulling hair' sounds a bit dramatic. What you are actually doing is stimulating the scalp by lifting the hair slightly.
