Head, for a human being, is his headquarters, housing the brain and fueling the mind. All activities of our living are governed from here, controlling the functioning of the entire body. In Ayurveda, we have an excellent treatment procedure that keeps the head strong and healthy for the entire system to be fit and healthy – Shirovasti, taking off from ‘Shiras’, meaning the crown of the head.
The Shirovasti is an important therapy because, the head, for a human being, is the major workstation, engaging the brain and fueling the mind throughout. All the activities of our living are governed from here, mainly controlling the functioning of our entire body. At AyurVAID Kalmatia, we have an excellent treatment procedure that helps keep your head healthy and strong for the entire system to be fit and healthy; this revitalizing therapy is called ‘Shirovasti’. This therapy involving retention of warm medicated oil on the head for a specific period is highly effective during the Hemanth Ritu.
Shirovasti is considered one of the most effective modes of external oil application. The oil is held in the cap for about 30 to 45 minutes. To be noted, we keep the temperature of the oil to a comfortable range during the procedure, after which it is drawn off and the head wiped off with a towel. Later on, an herbal powder is applied on the crown of the head to conclude the treatment.
The fact that Shirovasti makes the person undergoing it strong and immune both physically and mentally is a big advantage for stressed individuals. However, this therapy focuses on the aspects such that he or she is able to tolerate the extremes of life including diseases, stress etc. On the other hand helps them overcome their health related issues, remain ageless, feel-good, look good and develop overall immunity to many psycho-somatic illnesses.
In AyurVAID Kalmatia, this therapy is preceded by oelation and sudation. The Shirovasti therapy cures many disorders like facial paralysis, cataract, deafness, ear-ache, insomnia and other problems that afflict the cranial nerves. Shirovasti is one of the treatments of Ayurveda which serves both purposes. One is of curing the ailments and the other is of preventing the impending diseases. Healthy individuals should get this done once in a year or two to help their body rejuvenate and revitalize.
