Shirodhara is a popular traditional Panchakarma treatment for balancing the Doshas and for improving the function of the brain, there by relieving headache and stress. Shirodhara induces a state of peaceful awareness that results in a dynamic psycho-somatic balance. The present study was conducted on 40 cases of primary headache. The treatment was continued for 15 days with the objective to evaluate clinically the efficacy of Jaladhara and Jaladhara with some herbal medicines in the management of Headache. These patients were divided into two groups of 20 patients each. It was observed that the patients of group B treated with Ashwagandha extract (500 mg OD) and Shirodhara with water showed significant improvement, whereas the group A treated with only Shirodhara with water also showed similar improvement.
