Unhappy ending?: Best answer I can come up with is that somehow your upper cervical spine was extended and pressure is put on the greater and lesser occipital nerves. Which innervate the lower occiput and mid occiput (back of the head). Try to keep your head in a neutral position or move it from side to side and dance cheek to cheek with the massage table.
