Ayurvedic Head Massage-Things To Understand

  Ayurvedic head massage is a treatment available in almost all Ayurveda retreat centers. And it is best enjoyed during one or two weeks of stay in a yoga retreat. The oils they use during the massage help you feel fresh and healthy. However, you can do it on your own if you can set aside some time. The following is a brief guide that will definitely help.  

DIY Ayurvedic head massage

Ask your friends or consult a therapist on what oil would best suit your head. Done this, do the following.

  1. Warm your choice oil. Don’t overheat it.

  2. Sit upright and pour a small amount of oil into your hands.

  3. Comb your hair with your fingers.

  4. Pour a large amount of oil onto the crown of your head. Massage it into both sides.

  5. Bend a bit. Pour some oil onto the back of your head up to your hairline.

  6. Spread it and massage your neck and shoulders.

  7. Keep it there for half an hour. You have to protect it from dust and heat.


Tips to remember


Keep these pointers in mind to get the most from the treatment.


Choose the time wisely

Ayurvedic head massage is done so as to relax yourself. Quite naturally, the time you set aside for the purpose will have a great influence in the treatment. Do it at a time when you are free from all commitments. It will soothe your mind and the effect will multiply.  

Be mindful of the environment

  Make sure that the environment is comfortable enough to feel relaxed. Playing soft music in the background is highly recommended. You may even light a candle to add a touch of elegance. Taking care of everything and that too on a tight schedule is almost impossible. This is why experts recommend regular visits to an Ayurveda Yoga Retreat. All you need to do is to choose a reliable one. If your choice falls on Elephant Pass, we assure you, you are in the right place.
