Viewed - first person restraining cat holds head and front paws, loosely but in such a way that cat cannot lash out with paws or turn head and bite.

Why don't you offer head/face covering to cats? The flicking tail is a stress indicator and many cats feel safer if they can hide their faces. A small towel or the edge of a large towel works really well for this, plus then you have the towel handy in case things go south.
