Shirodhara plays a bit part in maintaining balance and is an unique oil treatment which is part of the ancient medical system of Ayurveda.
Firstly, the marma points of the face will be massaged followed by the Shirodhara treatment where a stream of warm infused oil flows on the forehead where the third eye chakra is.
Shirodhara is considered to be a divine therapy with emphasis on prevention is better than cure. Having one treatment is beneficial but having this treatment on a regular basis 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 functions of the pineal gland is to help to regulate melatonin which is the chemical that helps to regulate sleep patterns.
Shirodhara helps to settle your mind and has a profoundly relaxing influence on the central nervous system.
