Shirodhara, Shirodhara Ayurveda Treatment

Shirodhara is a modern purification and rejuvenating therapy based on an ancient Indian technique.

In Sanskrit language Shirodhara is composed of two words shiro + dhara. Shiro means head and Dhara means flow of warm oil on head. Sesame or another base oil is mixed with a few drops of aromatic essential oil to create the liquid. It is then warmed till a comfortable temperature is reached and the treatment begins. The exact combination of the oils depend on the body constitution and is decided and prescribed by an Ayurveda expert. The patient lies supine on a flat surface with head back and a rolled towel or pillow beneath the neck. A stream of warm oil is poured very slowly onto the center of the forehead (the location of the "third eye") for 30 to 45 minutes followed by gentle scalp massage. The effect is indescribable.

Shirodhara treatment is done in absolute silence. It takes you to deep relaxation and in to a balanced state of rest in mind and body. Men and women alike experience it as a high-point of Panchakarma applications of Ayurveda.
Best experienced after a massage, Shirodhara is one of our most popular Ayurveda application taken by Ayurveda lovers.

This therapy is meant for 'Shodhana' (a Sanskrit term). 'Shodhana' or purification therapy is not only meant for elimination of disease-causing toxins present in the body but also to replenish the tissues with nourishment and rejuvenate them. Rejuvenate literally means 'to make young again'.
