In Ayurveda, self-massage called abhyanga is a significant part of a daily routine because it helps purify the body and hydrate the skin. However, if you’re skipping your scalp, you’re missing out on on some major benefits. Here, Ayurvedic expert and John Douillard, who leads YJ’s new course Ayurveda 201, reveals how a vigorous scalp scrub enlivens you, helps you enjoy a better night’s rest, detoxifies your brain, and moves lymph.
