Shirodhara (nervous system treatment)

This would have to be the most deeply relaxing treatment you could ever experience. Shirodhara is a 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 with a gentle scalp massage and reflexology treatment. The effect is amazing!

Shirodhara deeply relaxes the nervous system by inducing alpha brain waves. As oil is poured on the forehead, the nervous system is deeply stilled. The brain waves slow down and become coherent. The result: better brain function, mood stability and improved ability to handle stress.

The conditions that Shirodhara can help are numerous. To name a few: anxiety, anger, panic attacks, depression, sleep problems, chronic headaches, migraines, rheumatism, hypertension, asthma, ear-nose-throat conditions, hair loss and many neurological disorders.

With each successive Shirodhara treatment, the mind systematically achieves an even deeper state of silence and more healing takes place. Regular treatments increase blood circulation to the brain, improve memory, nourish the hair and scalp, encourage sound sleep, and calm body and mind.
