Sink deep into relaxation with this luxurious Ayurvedic ritual which will set you on the path to healing your mind and body.

This treatment consists of warm, herbally medicated oil being gently poured in continuous stream over the forehead, specifically targeting the 'third eye' area. This is then followed by a luxurious head massage with individualised hand strokes.

This treatment is perfect for reducing mental stress, inducing calmness, promoting tranquility, and facilitates relaxation. It is the perfect treatment to calm your aggravated Vata, reduce anxiety, and improve sleep quality.

Benefits include:

  1. Stress relief: Shirodhara is known for its deeply relaxing and calming effects. The rhythmic flow of oil over the forehead helps to soothe the nervous system and induce a state of deep relaxation, reducing stress and anxiety.
  2. Improved sleep: Shirodhara can help promote better sleep patterns. By calming the mind and nervous system, it can alleviate insomnia, restlessness, and sleep disturbances, leading to more restful and rejuvenating sleep.
  3. Mental clarity and focus: This therapy is believed to enhance mental clarity, concentration, and focus. It helps calm and quiet the mind, allowing for improved cognitive function and better productivity.
  4. Emotional balance: Shirodhara can have a positive impact on emotional well-being. It helps to balance the doshas (energetic forces) in the body, particularly Vata dosha, which is associated with emotions like anxiety and fear. By calming the mind and reducing stress, it can promote emotional stability and a sense of inner peace.
  5. Headache and migraine relief: The gentle flow of warm oil over the forehead can provide relief from headaches, migraines, and tension in the head and neck area. It helps to improve blood circulation, relax tense muscles, and reduce pain and inflammation.
  6. Nourished scalp and hair: The warm oil used in shirodhara nourishes the scalp and hair follicles, promoting healthy hair growth and preventing dryness and dandruff. It can also improve the texture and shine of the hair.
  7. Rejuvenation: Regular shirodhara sessions are believed to have a rejuvenating effect on the body and mind. It helps to balance the doshas, improve vitality, and promote a sense of overall well-being.
