Soothing Shirodhara

Shirodhara is truly an amazing Ayurvedic therapy that can work wonders on disorders caused by Vata aggrevation. Nervousness, anxiety, depression, insomnia & overstimulation, just to name a few, are all reduced with shirodhara. “Shiro” means “head” & “dhara” means “stream.” In shirodhara, a warm oil stream is continuously poured over the “sthapani marma” (the space between and above the eyebrows) otherwise known as “the third eye,” as it has a soothing effect on the hypothalamus. Shirodhara is thought to sync frenetic neurons & alpha waves to greatly improve mental clarity, create stability & impart calm.
