Using Ayurvedic Therapy

There are a variety of techniques in ayurvedic therapy that will help relieve a tension headache. These include:

 

 

  • Nasya- Nasya is a method of delivering relief through the nose. In this procedure, medication is used in the nose with a dropper. This is effective because it allows the medicine to penetrate the Prana.
  • Indian Head Massage- Indian head massage focuses on marma points. With head massage, the energy points of the head are targeted to loosen up the muscles causing a tension headache.
  • Shirodhara- An extremely effective technique for reducing tension in the head, Shirodhara focuses on pouring a warm herbal oils over the head. Common liquids to use for this technique are warm medicated oil,  or herbal decoction.
  • Abhyanga- Abhyanga is a massage that is performed using warm oil. If this is performed on the head, it can help reduce the tension in the muscles of the head. If it’s performed on the neck and shoulders it can relieve the tension on the surrounding nerves leading to the head.
  • Diet and Lifestyle Changes- To prevent tension headaches, you’ll want to first look at your diet. Not only will you want to eat a consistent diet, but the foods you eat really make a difference. In ayurvedic therapy, foods that are cooked, wet, and warm are helpful for preventing tension headaches.

The combination of these methods is great for reducing a tension headache or avoiding one. Tension headaches are often a result in stress that comes from an imbalance in the body. Combining these techniques will restore unity in the body.
