Shirodhara

What is Shirodhara?

Shirodhara is an ancient Ayurvedic therapy. Warm oil (or other liquid) pours in a continuous stream over the forehead or ‘ajna marma’ , an area where nerves are highly concentrated, from a special vessel for about 30 minutes

It’s a great treatment for the healthy individual looking to maintain health and enhance well being, clarity, calm and immunity.

It increases immunity by relieving stress and worry, and balancing the Ayurveda mind-body types or doshas so that your constitution remains strong.

Shirodhara gives deep rest and renewed energy producing an ageless and youthful countenance .If you are in need of rest and relaxation, the process will provide you that. If you are well rested the process will enhance your clarity and perception.

Shirodhara can also assist with the following conditions:

  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
  • Lowering Blood pressure
  • Insomnia and Shift Work Sleep Disorder (SWSD)
  • Jet Lag
  • Hypertension

Who Should Not Have Shirodhara?

  • Other contraindications include brain tumor, recent neck injury, abrasions or cuts on the head, fever/chills, acute illness, nausea, vomiting, severe weakness, exhaustion, fainting or spontaneous sweating.
