Shirobyhanga Head Ceremony - with Wing Bone Abhyanga & Pichu

Linda Bretherton MA. Ayur Consultant. Warrington. WA4 1JQ


The Sanskrit name for God is Sat-Chit-Ananda = Sat (Existence), Chit (Consciousness), Ananda (Bliss).

The Head is considered to be the most important organ of the body it is the head that has all the six senses organs in one place, eyes, nose, ears, tongue and skin.

Abhyanga massage on the head provides, calming, nurturing, centring and nourishment to all these sense organs and promotes their wellbeing and natural functioning.


Ayurvedic head massage will help prevent and cure headaches, help control hair fall, premature greying, baldness and tired eyes. It encourages the hair root keeping the hair strong, smooth and glossy. It helps to promote a clear complexion and promotes sound sleep.


The correct procedure for Shirobyangha is much more that a 'head massage' there is a ceremonial aspect to this wonderful treatment.

The benefits are many

Shirobyangha is a wonderful and beneficial programme for de-stressing the whole body and for increasing the flow of cerebrospinal fluids, thus strengthening the nervous system. It's excellent for memory loss and nervous tension. It will disperse toxins from tense and knotted muscles, improving the circulation of blood in congested muscles and helps to oxygenate the brain.

It's an excellent treatment for relieving eyestrain, tinnitus, jaw ache and sinusitis, stimulates lymphatic drainage and aids sleep.


It is also used to help remove the toxins and other side effects caused by the use of hair dyes and other chemical hair or face products. Shirobyangha is also used to help prevent excessive hair loss as it nourishes the hair follicles.

In addition, it has an overall effect on the whole body as it acts straight on the central nervous system liberating from many stress related conditions like headaches.
