The Magic of Shirodhara

Shirodhara (she-row-da-ruh), meaning 'head-flow' in Sanskrit is a deeply relaxing and meditative Ayurveda treatment. This blissful practice is usually offered in combination with a warm oil massage(abhyanga) or other indicated treatment based on a patients' constitution(dosha) to achieve balance and promote clarity of the mind.


The ritualistic process begins with the patient face up on a warm table and an herbal oil is selected and warmed based on the persons' Dosha type then poured into a copper pot and positioned over the 3rd eye. A thin, steady stream of this golden sesame oil is poured continually over the forehead and into the hair for 20-30 minutes. The reduction of noise combined with a sensory overload flowing over the head creates a space to completely surrender to deep relaxation and release all thoughts in that moment.


The result of a session like this is complete clarity of thought and a deeper connection between mind and body, promoting harmony throughout. Conditions such as anxiety, insomnia, stress, and sinus problems have shown significant improvement from this treatment.
