Ayurvedic Treatment in Australia
This would have to be the most deeply relaxing treatment you could ever experience. Sirodhara is a modern purification and rejuvenation therapy based on an ancient Indian technique. A stream of warm medicated oil is poured very slowly onto the centre of the forehead (the location of the “third eye”) for about 30-45 minutes followed by a gentle scalp massage & reflexology. The effect isindescribable!
According to Ayurveda, Sirodhara deeply relaxes the nervous system, lowers metabolism, integrates brain function and creates brain wave coherence and an alpha state. When the brain is under stress, the circulation in cerebrum is compromised. As oil is poured on the forehead, the nervous system is deeply stilled. The brain waves slow down and become coherent. Once the brain is quieted, more life energy and oxygen and other nutrients flow more freely to the brain. The result: better brain function, mood stability and improved stress handling ability. With each successive Shirodhara treatment, the mind systematically achieves an even deeper state of silence and more healing takes place. Regular treatments are said to increase blood circulation to the brain, improve memory, nourish the hair and scalp, encourage sound sleep and calm body and mind.
Also, sirodhara is very beneficial to balance anxiety, anger, panic attacks, depression, sleep problems, chronic headaches, migraines, rheumatism, hypertension, asthma, ear-nose-throat conditions, hair loss and many neurological disorders.
