Why I should get a Shiro Abhyanga:
- The science of Ayurveda considers the human body an inverted tree (Urdhawa Moolam, Adhah Shakha), where the roots are at the top and the branches are pointing downwards. Here, the head is considered to be the roots, the thorax and the abdomen are said to be the trunk, and the extremities (upper limbs and lower limbs) are considered as the branches.
- Just like roots nurture a tree, the head is the operational center of the entire body. It consists of the brain which is the seat of consciousness and the sense organs with which we interact.
- Marmas, or vital energy centers, are the vital points in the body where the prana or energy is converted, regulated, and stored for use by the body and mind. They are also the sites of the Tridoshas – Vata, Pitta, and Kapha.
- It is generally accepted that there are around 107 Marma points throughout the body, where 37 are classified as Shiro Marmas (vital life centers), many of which are located in the head and neck region. This shows how critical the head and neck region are to our physio-psychological functioning and improve mind-body cooridnation.
