Shirodhara … a relaxing inner journey
Shirodhara is an Ayurvedic treatment. Ayurveda is a system of traditional medicine native to India. The word Ayurveda comprises the words ãyus, meaning “life”, and veda, meaning “related to knowledge” or “science”.
Our treatment is a marriage of four Tibetan massage treatments to create a seamless rhythm that can lead you into a peaceful and profoundly deep state of relaxed awareness. Special energy points help to release mental tensions, gentle warmth and massage to the abdomen and feet help settle the mind and relax the face, all of which lead to an anointing of the forehead with warm oil. This technique of playing a fine stream of warm oil on the middle of the forehead can recharge the body, bring clarity to the mind, and offer a quiet space to experience our true selves.
Shirodhara can nourish the skin, aid in removing impurities, stimulate both arterial and lymphatic circulation, and relax the mind and body. Through deep relaxation, Shirodhara can help to profoundly calm the mind, body, and spirit, and generally aid in releasing stress and tension.
