Ayurveda Shirodhara Body Therapy

Shirodhara helps with fatigue, mental exhaustion, anxiety, insomnia, headache and excessive thinking.  

Our forehead is a place on our body where nerves are highly concentrated. In Shirodhara the continuous stream of warm medicated oil on this area exerts a gentle pressure on these nerves which calms and nourishes the nervous system.

As a result, your body and mind descend into a deep meditative state and leave you revitalized.

What is it?

Shirodhara (Shiro = head and dhara = flow) is perhaps the most soothing oil treatmentof Ayurveda and is the ultimate way to relax and rejuvenate your mind.  

After a very relaxing facial Marma appointment a steady stream of warm herbalized oil gently flows between your eye brows onto your third eye and over the crown of your head.

Your Experience

After coming into the calm and nurturing treatment room, you’ll relax between comfy flannel sheets warmed to the perfect cozy temperature as you rest in the luxurious comfort of the massage table.

Your facial Marma begins your journey of moving deep into the Shirodhara portion of your appointment and soon you experience a thin stream of warm, herb-infused oil gently pouring from a copper pot onto your forehead.

You experience a warm soothing sensation on your head as the stream is gently positioned over Marma (energy) points across your forehead and finally resting over the third eye.

And then all too soon the flow of oil stops, you rest a few minutes and enjoy the moment as the residual oil is slowly massaged out of your hair.

And when you’re home, you’ll remember our recommendation to rest quietly for a couple of hours.


You’ll appreciate our ShiroBliss system because it makes sure you stay deep, with no disruptions; it’s totally quiet and the oil stays at an even temperature with a continual steady flow.
