Shirodhara is an ancient Ayurveda healing practice, performed in India for over 2,000 years, involving the application of warmed sesame oil which is infused with herbs that are gently poured onto the forehead for an extended period.

Traditionally it is used to calm and restore the nerves, harmonize vata constitutions, release stored emotions and purify the mind. In Ayurveda medicine it is considered an important tool in the pursuit of higher states of consciousness. Shirodhara has been shown to help with fatigue, mental exhaustion, anxiety, insomnia, some mental disorders, headache, excessive thinking, nervousness, and many other conditions commonly suffered  as a result of today’s super-active and stressful lifestyle.
