Shirodhara is one of the gems within the wide range of Ayurvedic treatments and it is also one of the most popular treatments at Amrtasiddhi Ayurvedic Health Centre. It is extremely effective in calming the mind, reducing stress and balancing the nervous system. If you feel run down, burnt out and you have difficulties thinking clearly, or if you are overthinking and constantly feeling agitated, a course of Shirodhara treatments can help you get back on track.
The term Shirodhara comes from the Sanskrit language and is composed of the words shiro (head) and dhara (flow). Warm oil, or another liquid like milk and buttermilk, infused with herbs is poured rhythmically across the forehead during this treatment, thus the name.
