Nowadays, Shirodhara Treatment is becoming one of the most admired Ayurvedic treatments. It is an ancient Ayurvedic healthcare treatment that aims to harmonize and rejuvenate the body, mind, senses and soul to achieve a perfect physical and emotional balance.
The term Shirodhara breaks down into two Sanskrit words, ‘shiro’ meaning head and ‘dhara’ meaning ‘to flow’. This luxurious and deeply relaxing treatment involves continuous pouring of warm natural herbal oils over the forehead to relieve the stress and anxiety of the mind. The Shirodhara treatment regimen includes balanced diet, herbal preparations, lifestyle modifications and various other relaxation techniques.
How Shirodhara Works?
According to the philosophies of Ayurveda, the center of the forehead or the Third Eye is the prime seat of human consciousness, spirituality and intuition. It is the chakra point of our body where our mind holds the past impressions which create emotional imbalances and distressed patterns of behaviour.
The blissful flow treatment of Shirodhara helps in relieving the mental disorders and stressful exhaustion of the mind by revitalizing the mind, calming the nervous system, stimulating the inner wisdom and improving mental clarity.
This peaceful treatment is generally carried out in warm and tranquil surroundings where a thin stream of heated natural oils flow over the patient’s forehead from a vessel hung approximately 2-4 inches above the head. The continuous patterns of waves created by the flow of oil trigger a state of unconsciousness which ultimately deepens the patient’s thoughtfulness and meditation.
Mediums Of Shirodhara
Ayurvedic practitioners make use of wide varieties of herbal substances to provide a rejuvenating Shirodhara treatment. Here’s a look at some of the most popular mediums used for the treatment and their particular applications.
Benefits Of Shirodhara
According to Ayurveda, Shirodhara Therapy relaxes the distressed mind, revitalizes the nerves, regulates metabolism and stimulates the brain functions. As the warm oils are poured over the head, the brain waves slow down and create a balancing effect which in turn enhances the blood circulation and releases the deeply absorbed toxins of the mind.
The mesmerizing and tantalizing effects of this treatment help in the achievement of a peaceful state of mind which helps in eliminating the diseases of head and the prevention of several health disorders. Some of the diseases that can be successfully treated with Shirodhara are insomnia, anxiety, chronic headaches, hypertension, asthma, rheumatism, premature greying, hair loss, etc.
