Shirodhara is a unique Ayurvedic treatment that involves the continuous pouring of warm medicated oil onto the forehead from a Shirodhara pot, suspended above the head, as you lie on a massage table. This calming process saturates the head with warm oil, soothing the tight scalp, neck, and facial muscles, as well as soothing the peripheral nerves around the scalp and brain, aiding in deep relaxation. The effect is a total feeling of wellness, increased mental clarity, and a deep feeling of being relaxed and rejuvenated. Shirodhara is a drug-free solution to stress, insomnia, mental or physical fatigue, anxiety and panic attacks, headaches, irritability, depression, and hormonal imbalance. During your head massage, your practitioner will work on specific ‘marma points’ (energy points) to stabilize nervous function, leaving you with a profound sense of calmness, whilst being bright and alert. This blissful treatment lasts for 140 minutes and ends with a warm cup of Vata balancing tea.
