The name comes from the Sanskrit words shiro (head) and dhara (flow). This therapy is rooted in the ancient tradition of Ayurveda and is used to relieve fatigue and promote relaxation.
The Shirodhara technique soothes and invigorates the senses and the mind. It has been used to aid in the treatment of a variety of conditions including anxiety, depression, balance hormones, relieve mental exhaustion & insomnia, sinusitis, hay fever, tinnitus, headaches, memory loss, vertigo, psoriasis & greying of hair.
The oil moves from the forehead and runs off the head into a basin. Some of the oil remains on the skin and hair. Ideally, the oil should not be removed but allowed to penetrate the skin for the remainder of the day. To prevent the oil from staining after the procedure is complete guests are encouraged to wear an old t-shirt, baseball cap or head scarf.
It is recommended that you remove make-up and earrings prior to arrival.
