Shirodhara - Ultimate Relax For Stressed Mind

Meditation Through Massage 

Shirodhara, often called the “king of all treatments” is a procedure that is very unique to Ayurveda. It is the most meditative and relaxing treatment you can imagine. This ancient treatment is renowned for bringing about a fantastic sense of deep relaxation, inner peace and clarity. Shirodhara has a profound effect on your nervous system, successfully addressing issues such as anxiety, fear, insecurity, inability to handle stress, insomnia, depression etc. With over eighty per cent of all disease in the West now attributed to stress, Shirodhara becomes one of the most important treatments nowadays.

How does it work? A continuous stream of warm oil (as well as milk or buttermilk in some conditions) is gently and methodically poured over the forehead and onto the sixth chakra, the location of “the third eye”, your intuitive energetic centre as well as area of a higher concentration of nerves. As oil is poured on the forehead, the nervous system is deeply stilled and brain waves are synchronised, creating profound relaxation, calming the central nervous system and integrating the mind and body. Regular Shirodhara enhances blood circulation to the brain, nourishes hair and scalp, improves memory and assists in providing sound sleep.  Shirodhara gives the best results when taken after an Abhyanga- a full body massage that uses medicated warm oil to nourish and gently cleanse the body.   Benefits of Shirodhara: 
Regular Shirodhara enhances blood circulation to the brain, improves memory, nourishes hair and scalp, assists in providing sound sleep and calms the body and mind. Shirodhara is one of the most effective treatments for reducing stress and nervous tension.
