Secrets of Shiro-abhyanga (head massage)

Many ayurvedic doctors keep this procedure a secret. Why?

Because this is a technical way of massaging oil and only trained therapists in panchakarma centers can do this perfectly.

So, why am I telling it out?

Because not everyone can afford their time or money to go to therapy centers for oil massage regularly and even a normal person can roughly follow the techniques get many benefits out of it.

This is called shiroabhyanga –  Shiro = Head + Abhyanga= massage.
