In Ayurveda the head is considered to be the most important part of the body to be treated. The head contains four of the five sensory organs of the body and seven of the nine bodily apertures through which we interact with the external universe. On the crown of the head is the sacred shrine called Sahasrara chakra, through which the soul is said to enter the body at birth and leave after death.
Shirodhara is known as the ‘king’ of treatments. It is the process by which warm oil or medicated liquid is methodically drizzled onto the forehead from a specially designed pot hung directly above the client. This is an ancient technique and the flow is maintained at a certain rhythmic speed to awaken the third eye. Vast and miraculous healing occurs when this technique is performed to perfection.
Through the rhythm of the oil trickling onto the third eye, which is the seat of our cognitive memories, awakening of these memories occurs, bodily tissues are transformed and good health is restored.
Prior to Shirodhara therapy the preliminary procedure of abhyanga massage is performed.
A truly soporific treat, Shirodhara soothes and invigorates the senses as well as the mind, inducing a total state of relaxation and wellness.
Shirodhara helps in clearing mental fog and nagging thoughts including addictions and calms the nervous system. This is a fantastic treatment for stress relief.
