Have you heard of the astonishing, unique and ancient Ayurvedic treatment Shirodhara? If not, it’s high time you know all about it because it might seem very useful to get a relief from so many health problems you are fighting at present.


The word ‘Shiro’ means ‘head and ‘dhara’ means ‘flow’. Shirodhara gives a relaxation that results in a dynamic psychosomatic balance. The treatment is done by experienced Ayurvedic therapists using medicated herbal oils. The warm herbal oil is set up to drip down from a medicated pot hung right above the treatment table. The oil drips down to the forehead (Ajna Marma), an area where nerves are highly centralized. The procedure creates a vibration in the powerful spot commonly known as the Third Eye. The oils flow over the scalp and through the hair, creating a blissful sensation.

Shirodhara is also a part of the popular ‘Panchakarma’ treatment and also one of the effective and oldest Ayurvedic treatments beneficial for balancing Vata and Pita doshas.
