Shirodhara: The Ayurvedic Flow Treatment

Author : Gurnam Saini  

Posted On : 10 March, 2014

Nowadays, Shirodhara Treatment is becoming one of the most admired Ayurveda treatments. It is an ancient Ayurveda healthcare treatment that aims to harmonise 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 revitalising 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.

 

  • Natural Oils: Undoubtedly, oils are the most commonly used fluids for the flow treatments. Different types of therapeutic oils such as sesame oil, sunflower, coconut, olive oil, corn oil, almond oil, etc. can be used.
  • Yogurt: Yogurt is also used in Shirodhara treatment due to its therapeutic attributes. The thick luxurious flow of yogurt soothes all the stress instantly and it is extremely beneficial for the treatment of vata dosha.
  • Buttermilk: Milk or buttermilk gives a relaxing and pacifying treatment for the pitta dosha. It is heated with a mixture of natural herbs and certain oils to enhance its healing properties. 
  • Salt Water: Salt water is a perfect medium for an effective Shirodhara treatment as it can be used for all types of doshas and it is easily available and extremely inexpensive.

 

 

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.

  • Highly recommend seeing Pooja for various womens health issues. Pooja offers long term alternative approaches to self managing one's health with the holistic ayurvedic system. Her manner and concern is sincere and she is very conscious of leaving you with the tools you need to take care of yourself beyond her consultations.

  • I thoroughly recommend Ayurveda Doctor Gurnam Saini! He is fantastic. I was feeling depressed with low moods and low energy, I'd put on weight and was experiencing hair loss. I saw results with my energy and mood after only a few days of treatment and after three months I have been gradually losing weight and my hair is becoming thicker and fuller. His Ayurveda herbs and supplements definitely do the trick, and his dietary recommendations are pretty easy to implement into your lifestyle. If you're feeling like your overall health and well-being could be better I recommend giving this a try.

  • Three weeks after my first visit with Gurnam, I started noticing big differences in the symptoms that I was experiencing as a result of hormonal imbalance, anxiety & stress, sleeplessness, hair loss, diabetes and weight issues. The most noticeable change were my hot flushes. My constant hot flushes (approx every 20-30 minutes) were debilitating and driving me to the point where I was just not going out. I was constantly hot and not sleeping week at all. Within 3 weeks this changed to about 2 during the day and just general warmth overnight, which meant I was sleeping better and not having to get up and cool my face and wash my body before returning to bed. My anxiety levels have been reduced significantly, even though I have still been faced with stressful situations and the hair fall much less. The herbal tea that I make each morning and drink through the day keeps me full and is neutral tasting unlike other ‘tonics’ Ive tried before. I look forward to seeing Gurnam monthly to get my mix of Herbal treatments and feeling better with each visit. Thank you Gurnam 🙌🏽

  • My experience with herbal Ayurveda was positive. I found a tremendous amount of healing with this therapy after suffering from bronchitis and arthritic pain for years. The herbal massage was the best thing I ever did. I stopped my medication, the bronchitis healed and my arthritis improved remarkably. I highly recommend it and I look forward to more treatments.

  • I strongly recommend Pure Herbal Ayurved Clinic to anyone who is looking into natural and organic health benefits. I consulted Ayurvedic Doctor Dr Gurnam Saini for hair loss treatment, as I had almost tried everything from expensive hair products to medicine for years and was highly disappointed. Dr Saini was very detailed and made me understand how lot of factors including my digestive fire, my sleep, my lifestyle etc. were directly impacting my hair health. I was highly impressed with his knowledge and his passion about getting me to understand the root cause. I clearly figured out how I was not in sync with my body. I am actually surprised that these organic ayurvedic medicines are very effective, as that was not my immediate expectation and I thought it will be a very lengthy process, but I was ready to give it a go! He also gave a me a specific ayurvedic organic hair oil to put on my scalp. It's been 3 months and I have almost completely stopped loosing hair and gaining more volume in my hair. I also found that taking shirodhara and nasya and head massage ayurvedic therapies of Dr Saini's recommendation was also important part of the treatment. I now feel more connected to my body and definitely my hair growth is visible to me and my family. Thank you Dr Gurnam Saini and Dr Pooja Saini (for those amazing therapies). You guys are working for a great cause.

  • I was suffering from ibs from a long time urgency to go to toilet and mucus in stool . Even I ordered medicine from India but it wasn’t work and proper guidelines there, they just there for sale the medicine only . Dr shani only one months medicine improved 80% of my gut problem . If anyone suffering from symptoms like ibs or gut issue I will definitely recommend to visit dr shani clinic .

  • I decided to take my 10 yr old daughter to Dr Saini after 9.5 yrs of struggling with eczema and food intolerances, and no solutions found but topical, long term use of cortisone creams. After only one month, we saw massive improvements in her skin, finally clearing up the majority of her eczema. This was done with herbal capsules and without needing to remove various foods from her diet. That improvement allowed us to tackle other health concerns like her consistent disturbed sleep. Now 4 months on, her skin is perfect, and her sleep is mostly uninterrupted. Any sporadic nighttime waking is for a very short period of time. And even better, now we can focus on her digestion which is my last concern for her. I can’t recommend Ayurvedic medicine enough to gently and naturally heal and balance out your body. l had done lots of reading on Ayurveda before we tried it, and all my expectations have been met and I’m sure will be exceeded in the near future. Thank you Dr Saini, for your kind and gentle consultations, and genuine interest in better health outcomes for your patients.

  • This is truly a fantastic cleanse! Dr Saini guides you through every step and you will feel the benefits physically, mentally and emotionally. I’ve done other cleanses but the simplicity and effectiveness of this one is second to none.

  • I started to get depressive mood and nightmares since diagnosed with varicocele and hydrocele. Specialist recommended me getting coil embolization to block the veins. I was hesitant with the idea of it and ignored his advice. I thought I would try with natural approach to deal with my health issues. After reading online I started to make healthy changes in my life-style and food regime e.g. avoiding inflammatory and junk food, energy drinks etc. Also reduced smoking and alcohol for 3 months. But my pain and swelling in the scrotal area did not improve. More over I started to get lack of libido, premature ejaculation and erectile difficulties. Due to that I started to remain frustrated and angry most of the time. My relationship with my family members, friends and partner started to get difficult. Finally came across Dr Saini ayurvedic medicine clinic in Melbourne. Had a detial consult with Dr Saini. His Ayurveda approach for varicocele and its related problem worked like magic for me. First month he modified my life-style and food, based on my ayurvedic makeup. He also introduced some his own blends of organic herbs and spices with daily breathing exercise. In second month I did panchakarma detoxification. Now there is no pain or swelling in my scrotal area. My manpower is back to normal (even better than earlier), having grounded emotions and sound sleep with best physical and mental health. I highly recommend everyone to follow ayurvedic life style and its natural way of healing your body. Dr Saini is best in his job.
