Shirodhara therapy works through to the deepest levels of one’s being. ‘Shiro’ translates from Sanskrit as head, and ‘dhara,’ as flow. A stream of warm, medicated oil is poured continuously on the forehead which helps to connect and energise the ‘nadis’, various channels that sustain our lives – from the circulation of fluids on the physical level to the subtle currents running through the meridians, chakras and auras. Using technical skill and intuition, this specialised treatment helps to improve blood supply, thereby increasing the flow of nutrients and oxygen, relieving tension, and promoting a clear pathway for nerve impulses to balance the nervous system and restore vitality. Shirodhara is recommended for sinus congestion, insomnia, and for clarity of mind. It is highly recommended that you avoid the sun for several hours after your treatment.
