Shirodhara is an ancient Ayurvedic healing practice performed in India for over 5,000 years.

Shirodhara “shiro,” meaning head, and “dhara,” which means flow. It works primarily on the mental sheath or "manomaya kosha" to help many discomforts commonly affecting persons in today’s active lifestyle.

Shirodhara is a simple, natural relaxation technique in which warmed oil is poured over the forehead to promote higher states of consciousness by: clearing blocked channels in the system, calming and restoring nerves, harmonizing vata constitutions, releasing stored emotions, and purifying the mind.
