The Shirodhara is considered one of the best-known Ayurvedic treatments in the West.
A Shirodhara treatment involves a marma head massage and a continuous flow of herb oil over the third eye, which is very effective for lowering stress. The result is a blissful feeling of wellbeing and restoration of balance in the nervous system. This treatment ‘massages’ your spirit in particular.
Shirodhara stimulates the pituitary gland and the hypothalamus, responsible for the body’s hormone balance. The Shirodhara treatment stimulates the secretion of serotonin, the “feelgood” hormone that gives us feelings of peace and wellbeing.
This will create an experience of total relaxation, peace in your head. This treatment can also be used effectively for many neurological issues or psychological complaints, stress, nerve tension and sleep disorders.
