Shirodhara is one of the most desired ancient Ayurvedic therapies that has a profound effect on purifying, nourishing and strengthening the body/mind on a deep cellular level.

 

Shirodhara is translated from Sanskrit as “shiro” meaning head and “dhara” meaning flow. Shirodhara then consists of a stream of warm oil poured slowly and steadily over the forehead at the third eye location (seat of consciousness). As the oil strokes the third eye, one dissolves into an ocean of calm relaxation, balancing the deepest recesses of the brain. One then begins to experience feeling immersed in a meditative state which denotes a state somewhere between a person’s sleep and awakened states. Joyful feelings emerge as old stresses, traumas and tensions are released, allowing for the metabolic rate stop and the brain waves to slow down bringing the nervous system into an absorbed state of peace and tranquility.

 

Some of the benefits or Shirodhara include: stimulating the endocrine system, activating and balancing the pituitary and pineal glands (for hormonal upsets) -simulating pleasure neurotransmitters (for depression, mood swings, emotional insecurities and addictions of various kinds) -helps many diseases connected with the head, neck, eyes, ears, nose and throat -helps various disease of the nervous system -improves digestion and the health of the skin and hair -rejuvenates face by removing worry lines -clears inertia and negativity, grounding a person and giving positive feelings -brings spiritual awakening and increased intuition.

 

Ayurveda’s main aim is to enhance and preserve the wisdom of every cell throughout our journey in life. Shirodhara truly honors the body as a sacred temple and a vehicle for the divine spirit within, allowing us to  honor our life light.
