What is Shirodhara?
Shirodhara is a very powerful Ayurvedic treatment considered to be one of the most effective method to reduce stress and tension. It facilitates the body’s own healing responses by disarming the stress response aspect of the nervous system (sympathetic) and activating the parasympathetic (healing) response. It is a like a deep meditation with additional health benefits due to the depth of the relaxation and the stimulation of the forehead center and the related master glands of the body. The medicinal qualities of the herbal oils, add to its healing qualities.
Shirodhara(shiro-dar-a) is a unique, blissful therapy that balances the body and stabilizes the mind. To receive Shirodhara, the client lies down upon a massage table with their eyes covered. Next a consistent flow of warm aromatic oils is poured on the forehead in a steady stream between the eyebrows. The oils flow over the scalp and through the hair, creating a blissful sensation.
