Shirodhara Treatment: Feel Eternal Bliss & Total Relaxation
By: - August 24, 2018
Giving deep relaxation and rejuvenation, Shirodhara Treatment is one of the best Ayurvedic treatment in India. The ancient science of Ayurveda has given so many revolutionary therapies that can work profound changes in the field of healthcare, and Shirodhara is one of them. ‘Shir’ means the head and ‘Dhara’ means a stream, Shirodhara means a constant stream falling on the head. This stream could be medicated water, herbal oils, or even milk. But in Naturopathy treatment, herbal oils such as almond oil, mustard oil, sesame oil, coconut oil, or Ghee is used predominantly.
Why should you experience Shirodhara?
Our head is probably the most important part of our body because it is from here that our entire life is controlled. It hosts the brains, endocrine glands, and spinal cord, so the nerves are very concentrated in this area, especially the forehead. The constant vibration due to oil falling on the forehead helps relaxing the nervous system.
All the three doshas i.e. Vata, Pitta, and Kapha have their vital points seated in this region, so the head is a very sensitive place. Any imbalance or aggravation in the doshas also reflects in the entire body. Same way, when a slow stream of medicated warm oil is released on the forehead, it relaxes the area and entire body immediately.
This is why Shirodhara is also called ‘Eternal Bliss Treatment’!
How does Shirodhara Treatment work?
First of all, a herbal oil is selected for the treatment as per the recommendations of the experts at the Naturopathy centre ,to suit the patient’s condition and intended outcome.
The Shirodhara Treatment is carried out in calm environment at suitable room temperature and aromatic scents to boost the relaxation.
A thin stream of medicated herbal oil is concentrated over the Ajna Chakra or the Sixth Chakra of our body, which is located at the forehead.
The warm oil stimulates the endocrine glands directly beneath it and also relaxes a cluster of nerves in the forehead.
The process is continued for at least 30 to 45 min, depending on the needs of the patients and their body profiles.
Shirodhara Treatment is not advisable for the pregnant women. It is also not administered in case of head injuries, fever, and nausea.
