Shiro Abhyanga is the Ayurvedic name for head massage. The head is the point where our senses, prana, and marma points join together to process everything we think and feel. Ayurvedic head massage is soothing and restores the effects of both physical and emotional stresses. Especially during the summer, our heads are subject to excess stresses caused by heat.
Ayurvedic scalp massage is an ancient massage practice incorporated in India hundreds of years ago. During the summer months, head massage with Ayurvedic oils offers relief from increased heat.
