In Sanskrit, the word "Shirodhara" consists of two parts, i.e. "shiro" which means head and "dhara" which means  flow. This is one of th most valued ayurvedic rejuvenating and body cleansing treatments which is also referred to as the royal treatment. This method of pouring a warm oil (sesame and herbs) on the forehead by a slow stream was used already before the year 2000 in the ancient India and is adapted to relief of stress, support of the immune function, rejuvenation of the organism and increase of longevity.

Shirodhara treatment is also known as a treatment which calms down nerves, harmonises the spirit, releasing emotions and clearing the mind. It relieves fatigue, eliminates exhaustion, anxiety, fight with fatigue, headache, nerves and other consequences of tense and active life.

​Progress of the treatment and benefits to your organism:

  • The treatment starts with a meeting with the professional and familiarisation with the progress of the therapy.
  • Then, you will pleasantly relax with your legs soaked in a bath of milk and petals.
  • First, feet and palms will be gently massaged with a warm oil.
  • Then, the face will be treated. Cheeks, nose area, ears and eye-sockets will be massaged.
  • Everything will be finished with a gentle head and shoulder massage.
  • A warm oil will be poured on your forehead to Anja chakra by a gentle stream and the oil will flow down to the seventh chakra Sahashara (crown).
  • After the massage, you will enjoy a relaxing sauna and bath.

If you want to achieve a deeper effect, after Shirodhara treatment we recommend to have a rest that day, i.e. not to drive a car, not to carry out heavy works, since calm mind will not want to carry out any serious works. It would be ideal if you allowed yourself to rest next day; thus, extending the effects of the therapy. If you practice yoga or meditation, this ancient Indian therapy is even more effective.

The majority of those who have tried Shirodhara therapy maintains that a sense of calmness and blessing lasts even for 5 days. Each application of a cycle of several sessions affects deeper and deeper layers of the nervous system and tissues of the body; thus, the benefits of the therapy become more intensive.

Effects of the Indian therapy Shirodhara:

  • Relieves headache, positively affects eyes, ears, nose, forehead and nervous system;
  • ​Improves sleep, dreams, relaxes muscles;
  • Slows down hair loss;
  • Rejuvenates the face, smooths wrinkles and slows down the ageing process;
  • Calms down the body, mind and spirit.
