Calm & Renew with Shirodhara
What is Shirodhara?
Shirodhara is a form of Ayurveda therapy, it is a luxurious and easy way to achieve instant calm and rejuvenation. It focuses on the chakra point just above and between the eyebrows. A steady flow of warm oil onto the forehead stimulates the pituitary gland, or "third-eye" chakra. This is one of the most divine ancient ayurvedic therapies, awakening the body’s intuitive knowledge. The name comes from the Sanskrit words "Shiro," means head, and "dhara" means flow. Therefore, Shirodhara is the continuous flow of oil poured in a steady stream on your forehead. This treatment is profoundly relaxing, and nourishing. It will improve your mental clarity and comprehension.
These are some of the amazing benefits of shirodhara treatment-
