Shirodhara is without doubt the most popular Ayurvedic treatment in the western world and has been practiced in India as an effective treatment for a wide range of conditions for millennia.
Shirodhara is a powerful therapy for calming a Vata mind- a state where our thoughts move unchecked at high speed and lead to increased anxiety, irregular sleep, poor concentration and memory, headaches and overwhelm. In our society today, almost eighty percent of all disease is now attributed to stress and our inability to slow down our busy minds.
Shirodhara has been proven to synchronise alpha brain waves, enhance blood circulation, reduce stress and tension. It improves mental clarity by stimulating the flow of our glymphatic system, the lymphatic or waste removal system of the brain and spine.
We use very high quality medicinally infused oil (sesame based) for our treatments according the needs and nature of our client.
When receiving a shirodhara treatment, you will relax supine on a massage table. For 30-60 minutes, a gentle stream of warm oil will flow continuously over your forehead soothing and cleansing your nervous system. Following the session, you receive a light head and neck massage to facilitate further relaxation and remove excess oil from your hair.
This therapy is truly best when preceded by Abhyanga- see below! It also pairs well with other therapies listed below, as well as herbal steams, plant baths and saunas- please inquire if you have any questions.
