Shirodhara is an Ayurvedic Therapy that involves pouring liquids over the forehead. Shirodhara is made up of two words Shiro meaning “Head” and Dhara meaning “Flow” from the ancient European Indian Sanskrit language,
Shirodhara is used to treat conditions such as:
• Stress • Sinusitis • Allergic Rhinitis
• Headache • Anxiety • Fatigue
• Insomnia • Vertigo • Greying of Hair
The Shirodhara technique soothes and invigorates the senses and the mind. A total feeling of wellness, mental clarity and comprehension is experienced in this process. This is a tranquilizing oil treatment as it alters the state of consciousness and reduces anxiety.
During your treatment of Shirodhara, particular pressure and vibration is created over the forehead. This vibration is amplified by the hollow sinus present in the frontal bone. This vibration and the warmth of the oil activates the function of the thalamus (the Third Eye) which produces serotonin (neurotransmitters such as Adrenaline and Adopamine) that will induce the well being and assist with the balancing our Doshas (energies).
Your Shirodhara treatment begins with a neck and shoulder massage which is then followed by the hot oil treatment and ends with a tantalizing scalp massage. Duration 45 mins
