Soothing and nourishing body treatments based on the ancient system of Ayurvedic medicine from India

Shirodhara

In this very popular and profoundly relaxing treatment, warm herbalized oil is poured in a gentle stream over the forehead. The oils are allowed to flow over the scalp and through the hair, nourishing them and creating a blissful sensation. As the oil strokes the third eye, it has a balancing effect on the deepest recesses of the brain, stimulating the endocrine system, the pituitary and pineal glands (for hormonal upsets) and pleasure neurotransmitters (for depression or emotional insecurity).
The procedure is also said to synchronise alpha brain waves, enhancing blood circulation to the brain, improving mental clarity and generally releasing deeply trapped ama, or toxins. Calms and purifies, rejuvenates. Can be done alone or combined with abhyanga.
