Intro for Shiroabhyanga
Shiro means head and Abhyanga means massage or treatment in Sanskrit, which is why you see these words a few times with different treatments.
For this 30 minute massage we work on your shoulders, neck and head. It is done sitting in a chair with the practitioner standing behind you. Like all other treatments we would use an oil that suits your needs, whether you need to fire up or cool down. If your not sure how you feel about Ayurveda but you want to try something out, look no further. It is an amazing way to try an Ayurvedic treatment, meet your practitioner and chat with them about what we can achieve together.
Relieves Headaches and Migraines
The most noticeable benefit is helping with pain, headaches and migraines. The soothing movements with the combination of medicated oil all over the head are a great way to relax, rejuvenate and rest the brain, muscles and nerves.
Improves the Sense Organs
Most of our senses originate in our head, this means that so much of what and how we experience the world is in one part of our body. If that part is constantly stressed then everything we experience will be seen through that lens. If we make sure that our head is supple and ready to take on new expereiences and challanges then we will be prepared for the world.
This is right between the Abhyanga and Shirodhara treatment so it has similar benefits then both of those. It is calming and relaxing like a Shirodhara to help you sleep at night.
Revitalizes The Brain
The brain is active most of our lives. If we are able to give it time and help to rest we will be thanked as it is a great way to reset our system and be ready for the day.

Final Thoughts for Shiroabhyanga
This is one that we have never had a complaint about. It is easy to receive and can even be done outdoors if its the right setting. Unless you are a very calm person already we will use a relaxing calming oil like Brahmi mixed with other oil and herbs to make it potent and show you the power of oil. We also teach this as a workshop when people are interested to show that it is easy to learn.
