Shirobasti is a highly specialized Ayurvedic treatment focusing on the head, regarded as a potent therapy for neurological and psychological conditions. In this procedure, a leather cap or a specially designed apparatus is securely placed on the patient’s head. The cap is then gradually filled with warm, medicated oil, which is allowed to stand and penetrate deeply for a specified period, often between 30 to 60 minutes. The oil used is selected based on the individual’s dosha imbalance and specific ailments. Shirobasti targets conditions such as anxiety, depression, migraine, insomnia, hypertension, and various neurological disorders by calming the mind, relieving stress, and nourishing the nervous system. This treatment promotes mental clarity, improved sleep quality, and overall brain health, making it a cornerstone therapy in Ayurvedic neurocare.
