There are 37 Marma points in the head and neck region and massaging these areas helps to improve oxygen supply in the brain which helps to reduce stress. Improving oxygen supply is important in helping you to think more clearly and creatively. This treatment is recognised by companies such as  Medicash

In this treatment I use Shirodhara oil with active ingredients of eucalyptus and fennel. This oils may help to calm the nervous system, promoting the body’s ability to resist stress and maintaining energy reserves.
