How to Give a Head & Scalp Massage | Ayurvedic Massage


In this video I’m going to demonstrate using
oil for a scalp massage, and doing some marma points for opening up the energy in the head,
and for helping to relax the mind. So this is warm sesame oil, and I’ll apply a little
bit to my hand, make sure the temperature is good, and apply it right above the hairline
to the forehead, which is very calming and relaxing. And then I will gently massage the
oil into the scalp. There can also be a lot more oil used than
that, but for now just introducing a little bit of oil, and of course you want to get
the consent, if you’re giving a massage, from your client that they’re okay with having
oil in their hair on that day. And if you’re getting a massage, make sure that you ask. So I’m doing some basic techniques for relaxing,
doing a little bit of pulling, and depending on the client’s sensitivity, if they’re high-pitta
and they’re very sensitive, is that pulling okay? They will tell you, so ask. I’m pressing
points along the scalp where the hairline kind of forms a little V, following there
and doing a gentle press. For the sake of this video, I’m going to press
down and show, just three times with my thumb, but usually I would take my time, if I was
extending, and I would do circles along each point, as I’m going to do here for the middle.
So again I’m going, it’s hard to see, but I’m going with my thumb, in clockwise, over
the points, down the center, until they reach the center, and then again, the final is another
indentation in the back of her part of the head. And that is how you do a basic Ayurvedic
scalp massage.
