Well Shama,

I have begun the heavenly head massage after a short vacation and have come back renewed and ready to learn new things. This course should add the finishing touch so really excited about it. I have completed the basic intro so hopeing this week will allow me to study and practice.

You are spot on, this course will really put the finishing touch on your work, literally. I always finish my Thai Massage sessions with 10 or 15 minutes of Heavenly Head Massage, and everybody loves it. And then it adds an entire new modality to your repertoire.

Completed module 2 on the sternum work. This is a technique I have not used so will have to experiment with it. Always like the new things though.

Completed Module 3 today and absolutely love the upper body twist. I love all of the twists and while I know pops are not the goal, my clients sure seem to like them. A couple of the twists I do iniate them in a big way!

Zipped through 4, 5 and 6 and loving the neck techniques. I had some of them in earlier course but have learned a couple new ones that have been very nice. Used them in my last session. Client loved them and very relaxed. I also finished with the neck and head where I have been finishing in childs pose. I will still use childs pose for some issues. It is nice because I can reach so much and for my yoga type clients it is also very relaxing. For stiff normal folks though it can be very uncomfortable and the neck and head are better to end on.

Looks like you are on the fast track with this course.
I am not quite clear what you mean when you say that you have been finishing in childs pose. You are talking about the neck and head section of the course which is all in supine position. So where does the childs pose enter into it?

You have said that you complete your Thai massage sessions with the neck and head in supine position. For many of my sessions I finish in childs pose. I begine in supine, then side positions and  move to prone to finish. It is easy to move into childs pose from there. There are conditions when I finish my sessions other ways. I was saying that I have been ending many now with the neck and head work unless I have a back issue, in which case I use the childs pose.

Ok I get it, so you put the client into childs pose at the end of the session. That’s a new one for me. I guess that works especially well for yogi types and your dancers, right? Or do you use that also on your average non-yogi client?

No you are correct. It works best on my yoga students and dancer types. Many of my older and stiff clients find it hurts their knees so head is much better here. I am loving the head and neck stuff. I just finished 8 and 9 and plan to try a bit of the ear stuff now.

Completed 10 and 11 today on the head and now moving to face. There is a lot of techniques in the head massage section so I will need to view several times and practice to assimilate these. This is mostly new stuff. I tried a few of them on one of my clients this afternoon and she loved it!

Well today I officially completed the Heavenly Head massage course. It is absolutely the finishing touch for a great therapeutic session. There are a lot of new techniques to remember for face work but they are nice. My favorite, by far, is your explanation of energy work. It is simple yet informative and just made sense. Thanks

Congratulations for completing another course! I am glad that this course resonates with you. It might feel a little esoteric to some, but I know that the principles that I explain in the program really work, and very well at that.

The actual Thai Back Massage course has been ready for a couple of weeks. I am working on the final video which is a presentation about the entire system, and which will give people access to the course. That’s a 20 minute long video which is taking me about one week to produce. When you see it you will probably understand why.
