Shirodhara is considered a therapeutic and rejuvenating Ayurvedic treatment for stabilising the state of mind and body, bringing them into harmony. The name Shirodhara is made up of 2 words 'shiro', the sanskrit word for head, and 'dhara' which means continuous flow of substances, such as medicated oil.  Shirodhara effectively works to correct imbalances at the mental, physical and emotional level.  Some of the benefits of Shirodhara are the easing of anxiety, the balancing of hormones, help with insomnia and that it induces a deep state of relaxation. The treatment involves flow of warm medicated oil over your third eye for approximately 20 minutes. This then is followed by an Indian head massage. Shirodhara induces a state of absolute serenity.
