This deeply nourishing and calming treatment is a cornerstone of Ayurvedic body therapies.
Also known as Shirodhara, it is a profoundly relaxing technique that delivers a steady stream of warm, herb-infused oils over the forehead and scalp, bathing your third eye and nervous system.
The oil is heated to match your body temperature and poured in a continuous flow on your forehead for about 30 minutes.
This stimulates the pituitary gland, which lowers stress hormones and calms the nervous system. Shirodhara has been shown in scientific research to effectively promote “relaxation responses” which are measured by a reduction in stress hormones and a transition from hyper-alert beta brain waves to relaxed-alert alpha waves.
Activation of the parasympathetic nervous system initiates a slower heart and breathing rate, reduced blood pressure, relaxed muscles and increases in many healing activities in the body.
It also soothes the mind and induces a state of deep relaxation that promotes restful sleep.
The muscles and nerves in the head and neck are relaxed, which can ease pain and tension, while improving blood circulation and oxygen supply to the brain.
