Shirodhara plays a big part in maintaining balance and is a unique oil treatment that is part of the ancient medical system of Ayurveda.
Firstly you will enjoy a marma point massage to the face followed by the Shirodhara treatment, where a stream of warm infused oil flows on the forehead at the point of the third eye chakra.
Shirodhara, considered to be a divine therapy with an emphasis on prevention, is better than cure. Having one treatment is beneficial, but having this treatment every month could result in long term health benefits.
This treatment has a profound effect on the nervous system allowing a meditative state of relaxation. Herb-infused oil is warmed then gently pours onto the third eye from a copper pot.
The third eye directly correlates with the pineal gland (which is part of the endocrine system).
One of the pineal gland functions is to help regulate melatonin, which is the chemical that helps regulate sleep patterns.
Shirodhara helps to settle your mind and has a profoundly relaxing influence on the central nervous system.
