HAIR & NOW (Ayurvedic Hot Oil Scalp & Head Massage)

ULTIMATE RELAXATION

“One of things that often get shorted when receiving massage is the head and scalp. Adding this to my session made sure one of my favorites not only didn’t get overlooked, but it also ended up helping me sleep soundly that night. Wasn’t sure about leaving the oil in, but afterwards, it wasn’t as oily as I thought it would be. The next morning, after washing my hair, my hair felt so silky and smooth. Loved, loved, loved the whole experience!” C.T.

Hot-Oil-Massage


Shiro Abhyanga

Applying herbalized oils to the head and massaging into the scalp is a traditional Ayurvedic practice that has been used for hundreds of years to maintain a thick, lustrous head of hair. Gently massaging the head stimulates the hair follicles and allows the deeply nourishing herbs and oils to penetrate the scalp, strengthening and thickening the hair at its roots. As an added bonus, pouring warmed oil over the forehead, and allowing it to stream gently into the scalp deepens relaxation, calms the mind and is known to ease headaches and promote sound, restful sleep.

This nourishing hot oil head massage includes an intensive scalp, head and neck massage. Depending on each person, we may also use the mini FaceBlaster tool. This tool is excellent for headache and tension relief due to restricted fascia. In addition, we use Bayan Botanical Ayurvedic herbal infused Healthy Hair Oil, which is specially crafted & blended to nourish and strengthen hair. The warmed oil is slowly poured onto the forehead and then gently massaged into the scalp.

Healthy Hair Oil brings you the powerful effects the top three Ayurvedic herbs known to have a special affinity for your hair, cooked by traditional methods into a moisturizing and nourishing base of sesame and coconut oils, and then infused with the essence of hibiscus flowers, also used to support the natural health of hair. Bhringaraj, known as “the ruler of hair” rejuvenates the hair and scalp, supported by the cooling and cleansing effects of Amalaki and Brahmi (Gotu Kola). Together, the certified organic herbs are used to infuse the oil with qualities known to Ayurveda to strengthen and protect the hair, Healthy Hair oil will support your natural thickness, color, and shine.

Takra-dhara

In our Essence sessions, you head massage is followed with warmed herbal infused milk gently streamed over the forehead, followed with a heated towel wrap. Takra-dhara is a type of shirodhara in which herbal infused milk is poured from a specific height, and for a specific time period, continuously and rhythmically, allowing the milk to run through the scalp and into the hair. This warming process gradually allows the oil and milk to penetrate deep into the hair follicles, encouraging further relaxation and better absorption of this specially blended oil for the hair.

How To Prepare For Your Session

When scheduling our HAIR & NOW, keep in mind that you may need additional rest following the treatment. This sort of session is very much like a deep mediation. Shirodhara, it all of its forms, is well known for cleansing the mind and senses. After your session plan for peace and quiet, avoid unnecessary stimulation, large crowds and make the remainder of your day peaceful. A warm bath before retiring for the evening is also highly encouraged. This is your time for mental rest.

Eat lightly before your appointment. This sort of massage can effect the digestive system and a full stomach is not advised. It is advised to avoid caffeine, cold drinks, and other stimulants for a few days after your session.

Your hair will be saturated with oil. Dress appropriately and comfortably. Wear an old shirt, something you don’t mind getting oil on. It is advised to leave the oil in your hair for at least a few hours following the treatment. It’s actually best to leave the oil in your hair overnight. Prepare to cover your head following the treatment. If the weather is cool, windy or cold, bring an old warm hat, again something you don’t mind getting oil on. An old scarf works well to cover the head and hair in warmer weather. A plastic shower cap also works well, of which we are happy to provide for you, if needed.

* Unless pre-arrangements have been made, all of our 30 minute Focus – Duet (Couple) and Great Escape sessions are done with one therapist within an hour block of time. For the best possible experience we actually encourage this, for while one person is being worked on by the therapist, it allows for the other person to sink into a deeper state of relaxation with the hot towels we use. Two therapists can be arranged, but is based on the availability of the 2nd therapist. If you would still like to see if we can schedule the Focus sessions at the same time, please let us know when you place your reservation.
