Additional notes for Module 11:  Over all my client liked the friction techniques more than the rubbing ones...and that is ok. I think it is wise use a variety of the techniques on everyone because you may not know what ones the person may resonate with or not..

MODULE 12

More techniques that I have never experienced or given before:)  I really enjoyed doing the nose ones! My client said they felt "fine".  I seemed to get good rhythm with the circle around the eyes, leaning forward/ back. I really like the thoroughness that this variety of techniques covers....using the many different strokes to cover the whole head in a variety of ways and pressures.

Thank you!

You are right - we never know what resonates best with someone until we try it. For example I love getting head massage from my wife. But the type of touch which I love most is pretty much the opposite of what she prefers when I work on her head. So we have to have a big enough repertoire of techniques to be able to accommodate many different people and preferences.

Module 12

While practicing this module, I really tried to slow down and use light pressure.  I practiced on my client at home and have been adding pieces of it onto the end of my massage sessions at the spa.  Again, very effective techniques....especially on the face and jaw where people hold a lot of tension without realizing it.    I am liking that I have more ideas on what to do in each area covered.  Thank you! ~J.

The variety of things that can be done on head and face are quite amazing - and very few therapists have many such techniques available.

Module 13

My experience in working with my client was that it was very calming and relaxing for both of us.  My client went to a deep state of relaxation almost immediately.  I practiced using a variety of different pressure amounts.   Afterwards, my client said that he liked all of the things I did - but especially the last technique -  the big face circle.  I liked the movement of my body in coordination with their breath....lovely!!

Module 14

I have watched the video for Module 14 and practiced on my client a couple of times now.  Perhaps I missed you mentioning this - but when during the session do you do the holds? I guess since you have put it at the end, I am assuming that it should be done then as some of the last techniques.   I really liked doing the holds...and felt myself relax deeply with my client. At times I felt like I forgot about time and how many breaths I was staying still for...and would then come out of it, re-position my hands and then sink into stillness again.  I loved it....and definitely plan to add this my bodywork sessions.  I also really appreciate your emphasis on the energy work...  Thank you!

You observed correctly - the holds are the very last technique in the session. That's how you end it.
