What is Shirodhara?

Shirodhara is an ancient Ayurvedic therapy that has gained popularity recently for its numerous health benefits. Derived from the Sanskrit words "Shiro," meaning head, and "dhara," meaning flow, Shirodhara involves a continuous stream of warm oil or other therapeutic liquids poured onto the forehead, specifically on the "third eye" area.

This soothing treatment has been practiced for centuries in India, offering a unique and rejuvenating experience for those seeking relaxation, stress relief, and overall well-being.

How Shirodhara Works

  • The client lies comfortably on a massage table during the Shirodhara session.
  • Warm oil infused with healing herbs or essential oils is continuously poured onto the forehead.
  • The oil flows in a gentle, rhythmic motion, targeting the "third eye" area.

This technique stimulates the nervous system, induces deep relaxation, and activates the body's natural healing mechanisms.
