About Shirodhara

Shirodhara treatment is one of the Ayurvedic Bahiparimarjana chikitsa or external treatments. Shirodhara is derived from the words “Shira” (head) and “Dhara” (stream).

The use of warm oils stimulates and soothes the hypothalamus, regulating pituitary gland functions and inducing sleep. Shirodhara stimulates Marma, or Vital Points in the head and improves circulation. Also, the warm oils used in Shirodhara cause vasodilatation of all channels and thus improve the blood flow to the brain. Shirodhara also lowers stress hormone levels, such as adrenaline and noradrenaline, as well as relaxes the mind.
