The cranium is home of organs and glands of vital importance for our development and for the maintenance of our lives.
As antennas or sensors, on our face grow organs for the functioning of our five gross senses: sight (eyes), hearing (ears), taste (mouth), smell (nose) and the touch (skin).
These senses allow us to gather "material"information and connection with nature, our environment.
Internally the brain and endocrine glands such hypothalamus and pituitary are the basic elements of the nervous system that transforms, processes and sends the information necessary for the proper functioning of the living organism.
The cultures of the past associated the pineal gland, which we now call the epiphysis, to a organ in charge of greater mental clarity and insight.
In recent decades it was discovered that epiphysis produces many changes, associated with the unit body-mind-emotions.
The so-called chakras, energy centers, correspond in the physical level to the endocrine glands, they preside over bodily functions and -according to Vedic culture - functions of a spiritual nature. The pituitary is the gland that regulates the operation of all other glands.
Ayurvedic medicine has taught us where some energy points which when stimulated appropriately can promote a better functioning of our senses and our system in general discharging stress and bringing a feeling of well being.
