Welcome, my name is Shama Kern. I am the founder and director of Thai Healing Massage Academy.
Heavenly Head Massage is my creation, and this is the story how it came about.
It all started when I visited Thailand for the first time in the late 1990s. I fell in love with Thai Massage and decided to study it.
From there I branched out and studied many therapies like Shiatsu, Chi Nei Tsang, medical Qigong, energy healing, various Thai Massage styles, Breema and others.
Since I lived in Thailand and was practicing and teaching Thai Massage, I was always looking for ways to improve my style.
Over time this gave birth to Heavenly Head Massage. Here’s how it happened.
In Thailand, most Thai Massage sessions include a little head and face massage.
However it is only an optional add-on and not regarded as “real” massage. The quality can vary drastically, meaning it is often not such a great experience.
Many massage modalities tend to neglect the body from the neck on up. However, clients (myself included), typically love neck, head and face massage. That’s why I decided that I wanted to fill this gap.
If we do what we really love, we tend to get very good at it. That’s what happened in my case. I created an entire upper body style because I was passionate about it.
I loved to see how it made my clients feel. Practicing Heavenly Head Massage became my personal meditation, my way to make a difference, to contribute something unique and valuable to the world.
You can’t help but feel good when client after client tells you that they have never been so relaxed in their life, that their headache went away, that they felt like they just went to ‘massage heaven’ for a while, or that they had experienced a deep meditative state.
Besides doing entire Heavenly Head Massage sessions, I always included some Heavenly Head Massage as the conclusion of my Thai Massage sessions, and my clients loved it.
Then I added an extensive repertoire of neck techniques to the system. This was a big success as well since most people need good neck work.
After teaching this system to hundreds of students, I created an in depth and sophisticated online version to reach all those who could not just travel to Thailand. The result is the Heavenly Head Massage online training course.
Teaching and sharing Heavenly Head Massage has always been a wonderfully rewarding experience for me. It has resulted in more appreciation and gratitude from both client and students than I could have ever imagined.
If you learn it, chances are high that your clients will love you for it, that it increases your referrals, and that it reduces the stress on your own body.
