This is the most popular workshop at Sunshine Ayurveda.
The Ayurvedic head massage is an ancient healing therapy, as old as Ayurveda itself. Its Sanskrit name is Shiro Abhyanga. It promotes relaxation and restores the energy balance throughout your entire body.
Shiro Abhyanga involves massaging the head, neck and shoulders with warm herbalised oil to calm and balance your mind and nervous system. This massage contributes to the relaxation of your muscles, improves blood and energy flow throughout your body, and helps eliminate toxins.
