    Hi everyone

    I have being trying to recall some of the questions from the M69 indian Head Massage exam questions. I recalled a few. I thought it might be good to post them for future referance to the people who will take the exam. Can any one else recall the other questions?

    (In any order...wording also changed as I can't recall the exact wording used.)

    1. Which is the deeper tissue movement
    2. What is the name of the muscle that covers the shoulder to arm joint
    3. Which of these is not a contra indication? (Answer was Stress)
    4. On the epidermis, what is the bottom layer called?
    5. What is partial baldness called?
    6. Which carrier oil contains Phosphate?
    7. What is the name given to the colour of the skin?
    8. What is meant by Hypo-allergenic massage oil?
    9. What is the best position for the client to put her head during the facial massage?
    10. What is a link movement called?
    11. How long does a IHM treatment last?
    12. IHM is benifical for....

    RE: M69 Indian Head Massage Exam Questions

    Hi Rakhee, thanks for the heads up on question 6. I recall the consultaiton ones but can't remember on how they were worded so I have missed them out. Wasn't there a question on hormons, i remember on of the possible answers been adrenalin.

    Love Gail xxx

    RE: M69 Indian Head Massage Exam Questions

    hi its sounds like you had the same exam as me

    the question was what hormonal gland comes into play in an abnormal situation (someting like that) Pituitary, pinal, adrenal, or thalamus. Some of our class thought pituitary although our tutor thought they may have been looking to deeply into question. I put adrenals. although as with some of their questions the answer is debateable between the choices. Two questions seemed to have the same answer which was to revise treament plan but again one of thoughs could have been to make sure client is happy?

    RE: M69 Indian Head Massage Exam Questions

    I agree! Itook the exam on Monday and thought it was really quite apparent that VTCT were inexperienced at setting multiple-choice exams (or certainly that this was the first M69 paper they had written).

    There were a couple of poorly phrased questions (e.g. using the term 'abnormal conditions' was too vague for the one re glands), a virtual repitition of the question re client feedback and client evaluation (when there was only 19 questions and SO MANY of the topics we had been told to revised were not covered at all why have two such similar questions), various questions that we had not covered in class (e.g. the alopecia one was too specific when most of the text books we use only refers to alopecia - not full name alopecia areata), various questions that were so common sense that anyone could have answered them, and then to cap it off a spelling mistake on the last question. Really shoddy.

    I have the M2 / M74 one tomorrow - has anyone sat that one yet (and are there similar issues with that one?)

    Amy x

    PS I selected the adrenal glands for the question re which gland responds to 'abnormal' conditions? I interpreted 'abnormal' to refer to stressors or danger - but it was so ambigous!

    RE: IHM Oral

    Hi Dottie,

    I didn't do VTCT IHM, but I think they'll almost definately ask you 'what part are you working on now?' (eg stermomastoid or whatever.) Sometimes they might ask you something like 'why do you tilt the head forward when doing the circular neck massage?'


    I have heard of people being asked 'what would you do if your client had a nosebleed now?' or 'how would you adjust the treatment if your client was pregnant?'but usually that kind of questionis in your theory paper.

    Wishing you the best of luck,

    Azalia

    basic aid on fainting, nose bleeds etc
    general physiological and psychological effects
    aftercare and home care
    that shud cover you!
    (i shud really start taking my own advice and get off computer[sm=idea.gif]

    IHM Questions

    Hi folks,
    Well I passed my VTCT IHM on Saturday 4th March. I'm going to try to remember some of the questions for you so here goes:

    We had to label a cross section of skin

    Label bones in head, shouldersand neck

    Label muscles in upper arms and back.

    Name muscles in face and their actions

    Which oil is used to moisturise

    What are the benefits of Efflaurage

    Oh hell I've gone blank, I will have to feed them to you as I remember them -sorry

    But it was not half as bad as I thought it would be, I think if you truly revise it's not a problem.

    Speak soon

    Dot

    RE: IHM Questions

    Dot congratulations for passing your exam.

    Was this an external exam set by VTCT. If youre not sure what this means this is a VTCT exam paper that is sent to your college from VTCT and marked by VTCT. Or was it an internal exam which was set by your college and marked by the college also?

    RE: IHM Questions

    Now you've got there.... It was marked by an internal accessor but has to be verified by the external accessor, does that make sense?
    If it's any help I did my training at the Holistic Training Center, Southamptonwith Helen Mcguiness, told our qualification is vtct diploma level 3 (M69, M2, M74). Does that help.

    Luv
    Dotx

    RE: IHM Questions

    It sounds like the exam paper was set and marked by your college then Dot. The reason I asked was that as far as I knew VTCT werent doing external exams for the last two years and also when VTCT were setting and marking them there werent any that had diagrams.
    Youre at an excellant college with one of the best in training ;o)
    Well done again and good luck in your holistic future.

    exam questions

    I am starting to worry now, because there are questions here that I have not covered in class or in my eku's or anywhere in fact. Who actually writes the exam papers ? I am really struggling to make sense of my IHM portfolio case studies questions etc ............

    Hi missym - haven't you recently started training? I think you may be worrying unduly if you are only just into the course work - all the questions (previously posted last year) will/should be covered as you progress. You should also be given guidance on portfolios in due course.
