Shirodhara is a gentle, yet deep treatment that works specifically on neutralizing and calming the activity of the mind. Warm, dosha-specific infused herbal oils are delicately streamed over the Ajna Chakra or third eye, taking you on a hypnotic like journey of deep calm. This supports the process of calming the mind and racing thoughts which provides an opportunity for the nervous system to feel safe and grounded. Often feelings of relaxation and delight follow. Shirodhara is helpful for repetitive thoughts, impatience, doubt, worry, anger, insomnia, hair loss, and especially headaches.
The benefits are greatly enhanced if paired with a therapeutic Abhyanga massage, when the body is already relaxed and in a very receptive state. When the body can not feel at rest, Abhyanga is effective at grounding; and when the mind is relentless, Shirodhara is a soothing antidote.
Abhyanga is a full gentle body massage with warm medicated herbal oils, that remove toxins from the cells and bring nourishment to the tissues, deep relaxation to the muscles and calmness to the mind. Abhyanga is calming and the effects from the treatment can be felt for days after as it builds on itself by bringing addressing the body’s emotional imbalances. Abhyanga incorporates the use of gentle gliding like strokes and special rhythms that will allow blocked energy to effortlessly move throughout your body. This is why it’s often considered both detoxifying and rejuvenating. Abhyanga can provide supportive in conditions like anxiety, fatigue, pain, arthritis, digestive issues, and stress. After and Abhyanga treatment, get ready to notice a new radiant lustre on your skin. Regular Abyangha treatments are like reclaiming your own fountain of youth.
