Stress Relief & Rejuvenating Therapy

shirodharaA deeply effective therapy in the treatment of stress, anxiety, nervousness, and insomnia. It is also beneficial for depression, fatigue, hormonal imbalances, high blood pressure, migraines and chronic headaches. Shirodhara involves the precise pouring of warm, specially medicated herbal oil upon the forehead. The treatment includes a head massage. Depending upon your condition, an alternative liquid may be used such as a herbal decoction or milk decoction. You will feel relaxed and elated. If you’ve been pushing yourself too much, this treatment will definitely bring your nervous system to a screaming halt. You will most likely just want to lie down and rest afterwards – which is exactly what you should do, if at all possible. So, try not to schedule anything in after a shirodhara.
