By: - September 8, 2020
In these difficult times of the global pandemic, our lives have changed drastically. The amount of stress has increased at a faster rate now as compared to the earlier times. The mental health of people has also been affected due to this. People who are unaffected by the virus and the people who have recovered, both are facing a lot of mental tensions. Various studies also showed that people who have recovered face a lot of trauma and stress for the initial months of recovery. Hence, it has become extremely important for everyone to take out time from their schedules for relaxation.
The Shirodhara treatment helps in calming down the mind and the nervous system. It eases mental and emotional stress and enables clarity by letting one experience ultimate bliss. The Shirodhara treatment is one of the steps of the Panchkarma, a classical Ayurveda therapy. The name is derived from the Sanskrit language, where, ‘Shiro’ means head and ‘dhara’ means flow.
Shirodhara therapy has been proven to be very helpful for the treatment of migraines as well. The process includes pouring lukewarm liquid- which is usually oil, milk, buttermilk or water, onto the forehead in a steady stream for giving rise to a calm and relaxed state of awareness. The Shirodhara therapy is also often combined with a scalp and head massage, which helps upto a great extent in calming down the nerves resulting in relaxation for the migraine sufferers.
Various practitioners perform the Shirodhara treatment as an ayurvedic approach to stress relief. In a country like India, Ayurveda has been a trusted source of treatment for over a thousand years. Shirodhara has a list of benefits such as:
