We never liked application of oil to head. The
stickiness of oil was obnoxious. The stains to clothes
also were despicable.
The belief that the eyes, face, head, hair, related
muscle groups, neck etc are benefited has been
prevalent in the people for millennia. But we, who
were enamored and overwhelmed with the
glamour, glitter, pomp and false glory of the
mainstream medical system we were trained in;
despised the age old wisdom!
But now I have changed. I have admitted my
mistake to myself. So, I massage my head almost
everyday with plain coconut oil.
I do head massage myself and thus get exercise to
my arms, forearms, hands and fingers! Further; the
dryness of the palms also vanishes. Many times
either I stroll or watch the news on TV
simultaneously as I massage head and hence save
time as well!
After the massage I take warm or cold bath as may
be comfortable. This is really; a refreshing and
rejuvenating experience especially if combined with
As a result of my own experience, I strongly feel
that the age old techniques and the traditional
masters of these techniques; should have a
respectable position in mainstream medical
education, practice and research. It would benefit
the people all over the world.
