Head Massage

Before going to start head massage, let me tell you, what are the precautions we have to follow before or during and after oil massage.

Before starting :
Make sure that your hair is dried and there is no dust at all. If you apply oil on watery or dusty hair, it may lead to dandruff and scalps.
Oil :
Use better quality oil like navaratna oil, parachute oil or tilsona oil and castor oil (amudam oil). i prefer castor oil as it is very much helpful to brain as hinted and cited in ayurveda.

Process :
Ask the person to sit in a chair, he should be straight and comfortable. Now take some oil like 5-6 drops , pour it on the person's head, press gently with palms for 10-20 seconds. Now spread oil throughout the head, rub it gently. Now total oil is disappeared. Take some more oil into your hands,spread it in your hands , apply where traces of oil are not found.Do same process for three to four times until entire oil dries up. It is clearly explained in demonstration video.

Coming to eyebrows, start from middle of the forehead, drag your fingers towards the ends of the forehead gently, you can also press eyeballs, with utmost care. other wise skip eyeballs. Now it's time for neck, starting from middle of the fore head , drag your fingers to back side of the head, and there after to shoulders. Now press the neck and shoulders smoothly. This process will give, great relief from headache or any tensions.

Caution :
While pressing on forehead, do not use much force especially towards the sides of the forehead, as it is connected with nerves of eyes and brain.
After massage :
wait for atleast half an hour, so that all the oil sinks into the head and it will give you maximum benefits.

Eye Excercise

First of all wash your eyes with normal water not with cold water , wait untill water evaporates or wipe them out . Now sit straight and comfortably now select a point which is away from you and in between 5 to 10m from your eye, stare that point non stoply until you close eyes for the first time whether it is 1 min or 2 mins or more than that without any pain  then stop staring.

Now rotate eyes up and down for 10 mins and then left to right 10 times without any strain,wait a second and close your eyes with palms, donot touch eyeballs , do it for two minutes.

Do this four to eight times a day, whenever you feel strained and whenever you have free time. it takes a maximum of five minutes, but it will give refreshment to your mind like anything else.

During the nights , go to terrace or any open place, select a star in the sky, and just stare it until you close your eyes for the first time. if you do like this eyesight is not going to increase. it may not be decreased, but surely wont increase :)
