What is Shirodhara

Shirodhara is an ancient purification&rejuvenation therapy uniquely used in Ayurvedic practices.Shirodhara is composed of two words, “Shiro” meaning Head and “dhara” meaning Flow. Together they aim to bring physical and emotional balance by revitalising the spirit and preserving health.

This is achieved through a relaxing technique which involves the warm and consistent flow of herbalised oils on the forehead, specifically on the ‘third eye”. This is the chakra point just above and between the eyebrows. Shirodhara targets the mental wellness of the body by helping to alleviate symptoms such as: fatigue, excessive thinking, mental exhaustion, nervousness, stress and anxiety, and many other common symptoms caused by today’s current lifestyles.
