Shirodhara is a powerful Ayurvedic treatment that calms the nervous system and resets our body’s natural ability to heal.
It involves the warm and consistent flow of aromatic oils on the forehead, particularly on the “third eye” area. This is the chakra point just above and between the eyebrows and is said to be the seat of human consciousness. The oils flow over the scalp and through the hair, creating a blissful sensation.
In Ayurvedic Medicine, it is considered an important tool in the pursuit of higher states of consciousness.
As the oil flows onto the third eye, it is said to have a balancing effect on the deepest recesses of the brain, while stimulating the endocrine system’s pituitary and pineal glands. The procedure is also said to synchronize alpha brain waves, enhance blood circulation to the brain, improve mental clarity, and release deeply trapped toxins.
Shirodhara has been traditionally shown to help with fatigue, mental exhaustion, anxiety, insomnia, some mental disorders, headache, excessive thinking, nervousness, and many other conditions commonly affecting persons in today’s active lifestyle.
Regular shirodhara treatments enhances blood circulation to the brain, improves memory, release stored emotions, and purify the mind.
