Shirodhara Therapy

An Ayurvedic Therapeutic Approach to Stress Relief. Shirodhara is the combination of two Sanskrit words “shiro” (head) & “dhara” (flow). It’s an Ayurvedic healing process that involves someone pour liquid - usually oil, milk, buttermilk, or water - onto your forehead. It’s generally combined with scalp, or head massage.

Ayurveda is a holistic health approach that is originated in India thousands of years ago. It focuses on rebalancing the life forces, known as doshas, within human body.

If you’re new for Shirodhara, It will be better to work with a professional who has been taken training in Ayurvedic practices.

At the start of the appointment, you’ll be asked to lie on your back and relax.Next, the practitioner will heat up the liquid so it roughly matches your body temperature and place it in a bowl. They may hold the bowl over your head or use a stand.

Either way, the liquid will gently drip through a small hole in the bottom of the bowl, landing between your eyebrows. Your eyes will be covered with a lightweight barrier for protection.

The whole process generally lasts anywhere from 30 to 90 minutes. It might involve a massage before or after the treatment.
