What is Shirodhara?
In Sanskrit, the ancient vibrational language that is used in all the root texts of Ayurveda, SHIRO refers to the head and DHARA refers to the idea of a fine continuous stream.
So a warm liquid flows from a vessel onto the forehead of the recipient, through their hair and into a catching bowl on the floor.
Of all the body treatments offered in Ayurveda, both, the Spa and Beauty industries as well as the general public is especially fascinated by Shirodhara.
"From our experience and training in the bodywork methods of Tibetan Ayurveda, we formulated a profoundly relaxing, yet mind-clearing and awakening process that has become a standard in many spas and individual therapists throughout the world. Tibetan Shirodhara, like all our treatments, is a modular sequence, with each portion being a stand-alone process which, when combined, yields amazing results. "
