– A Powerful Therapy That Stabilizes Your Mind
Shirodhara is a blissful therapy that exists under the wide umbrella of Ayurvedic treatments. Shirodhara is a word from Sanskrit literature which means pouring oil as a thread on the forehead. (“Shiro” means forehead and “Dhara” means dripping as a thread). It is an ancient practice that has been offered in India for over 5000 years. Shirodhara treatment is often appreaciated for immediate results. A single session of Shirodhara treatment is enough to offer significant benefits like a rejuvenation of the mind, expansion of awareness and a cleansing effect on the nervous system.
Warm herbal oil poured in a steady and thin stream on the ajna marma (forehead). Ajna marma is the area where the concentration of the nerves is high. Shirodhara is often administered as a part of Panchakarma regime, but it is also quite effective as a stand-alone program.
