What is a shiro patch massage?


 Indian Medical Massage wide pichu is a punch karma therapy that can help us deal with a lot of pain. This is ancient Ayurvedic therapy that is a massage in the area of ​​the crown and skull. Even ancient Indian doctors and shamans have discovered that this kind of stimulation has a very good effect on people, both physically and spiritually.


The term comes from the ancient Sanskrit language, in which  shiro means 'head' and 'pichu' means 'cotton swab.' Healers apply oils, enriched with herbs, on the towel or gauze, which, by placing them on the skull, directly affect it.


When is the wide pitch done and for whom is it recommended?


According to the legend, it is best to perform this massage in the morning, but it is best for a specialist to assign hours according to the case. Like most Ayurvedic therapies, wide pichu consists of three parts:


  •         The first phase of a session is called bursting karma.  In other words, this is the preparation for the therapeutic ritual. First, the therapist heats the pre-selected water bath oils
  •         The real part of massage is called karma.The Ayurveda doctor irrigates the clean swab with about 10 milliliters of the warmed oil mixture. It is the longest in duration and can take about half an hour or even more in some patients
  •         The ritual ends with a paschal karma – the final phase in which the patient rests and returns to his or her daily routine. The therapist removes the towel from his or her head and usually has a short guided meditation session. The total duration of a wide patch massage is usually between 45 and 60 minutes in total forbursting, selling and fitting a karma session


Wide-pitch is highly recommended for any illnesses and ailments associated with imbalance in the seventh chakra – this is the energy point that is in the area of ​​the pelvis. In Ayurveda this chakra is seen as the human crown, which serves as a bridge between the material human world and the spiritual world.


In Ayurveda, a person's body is viewed in comparison with a tree organism, but inverted. In other words, for the people of Ancient India, humans are trees with rhizomes stretched upwards to extract vital energy from the heights.


Here the 'crown' of the tree and the human 'crown' diverge, even on the contrary – they are like yin-yang. Through a broad dude we stimulate precisely the roots of our existence. Thanks to the opening of the seventh chakra, we feel filled with energy and ideas.

Ayurveda therapists emphasize that many conditions are caused not by the external environment, but by toxins and harmful factors that are inside us, and very often we are the ones who put them there.


This applies not only to stress, alcohol, cigarettes and other apparently harmful substances that many of us take on a daily basis. But sometimes it can be painful for us to be products or things that we do for the clear purpose and purpose of helping ourselves.


The truth is that what is useful to some of us is not necessarily good for the rest of humanity. According to Ayurveda, each person has a certain constitution that may be entirely made up of a dosha or a different combination of two or three doshas. For this reason, people are also more or less affected by certain harmful influences and are at risk of developing a specific  group of diseases to which we have a constitutional predisposition.


One of the most important things you will learn from talking to your Ayurvedic doctor  is how and what foods are good to eat so as not to disturb the balance of dosha or dosha. It is not just about which vegetables, fruits and proteins to take, whether we are tolerant of milk or not, but also whether and to what temperature we need to warm what we eat and what hours to eat.


Traditionally, Ayurveda cooks add a wide variety of spices to their food. People with more serious illnesses should analyze all the foods they consume, as well as their overall eating and motor habits. From this point of view, all of them must also comply with it.
