What is Shirodhara?

Shirodhara is an ancient ayurvedic therapy, increasingly sought out by modern spa goers and health enthusiasts around the globe. It offers instantaneous sensations of calming and relaxation to clients.

Ayurveda considers the center of the forehead or third eye chakra to be the seat of human consciousness, spirituality and healing. During a Shirodhara treatment, a state of pure silence and calmness is achieved by creating an optimal flow of energy throughout the body, together with and a heightened internal awareness in the mind. Shirodhara consists of a gentle stream of warm herbal oil flowing on the forehead to sooth this often tense and blocked chakra point. The specialised therapeutic oils flow over the scalp and through the hair, creating a blissful state of relaxation and promoting a deep sense of well being.

Clients who receive this therapy often report a sense that their anxieties, fears, worries, exhaustion, sadness or anger are being physically washed away. It really is a phenomenal sensation! Facial skin regains a natural glow and youthfulness which is retained after the treatment ends, with softened stress and worry lines and wrinkles often witnessed. Other benefits may include sleep becoming deeper and more restful, hair recovering its luster and strength and hormones being balanced by the stimulation of the pituitary and pineal glands of the endocrine system.

This therapy is an excellent addition to your massage or healing practice. It includes marma massage of the face, head, neck, shoulders and feet.
