The sages of ancient times describe the human body as an inverted tree, i.e. as “having the roots at the top and branches below”. Hence, the head acts as the roots of this tree, the chief organ in which the sensory faculties and Prana (life force) reside.
Just as healthy roots confer good health to the rest of the tree, we need to take care of our head to keep our body healthy.
Shiro-abhyanga is a specialized oil massage of the head targeting specific marmas (acupressure points) to promote balance in the nervous system and within the body.
