Shirodhara is a traditional form of Ayurveda therapy which has been in practice for over 5000 years now. It attempts to achieve purification of the senses to cleanse and restore the lost balance of your life and body. It covers one of the five steps of Panchakarma, which involves gentle pouring of oils and herbal liquids over the forehead to relax your nervous system. This process inundates the head with soothing warm oil, while relaxing the scalp and uses gentle massage on neck and facial tissues to relax your muscles. The warm and consistent flow of herbal and scented oils on the forehead, especially on the ‘third eye’ point, gives you a feeling of divine relaxation and rejuvenation. This ‘third eye’ location on your head is the chakra point between your eyebrows that directly regulates the energies of your mind and body. This point is known to be the seat of human consciousness. When the organic oils start flowing from that point through your scalp and hair, it creates a blissful sensation, thereby healing your nervous system.
