Shirodhara is a unique ayurvedic therapy. It is deeply relaxing, stress-relieving and induces a state of meditative calm. Its purification and rejuvenation effects are profoundly nourishing and restorative to the nervous system and mind.
Shirodhara involves pouring a steady stream of warm liquid over your forehead. The liquid is selected based on your dosha constitution (Vata/Pitta/Kapha) and your health needs. The liquid can be oil-based (Tailadhara), milk-based (Ksheeradhara), buttermilk-based (Takradhara) (buttermilk) or herbal decoctions (Kashayadhara). The most commonly used liquids are herb-infused oils.
