There is a significant misunderstanding in the western world and especially in the spa market regarding what is known as Shirodhara. Shirodhara as used in the spa market with little exclusion barely appears like the unique and classical custom at all.
This is mostly due to misconception and partly due to practicalities rotating around available employees and devices. The second part of the misunderstandings depends on the perpetration of and distribution of false information regarding these 5000’s of years old treatment exercise.
In Shirodhara the flowing of oil is only one of several types of materials that are used for an orthodox Shirodhara yet it is the only one largely recognized. The objective of this training is to create a guideline by describing the fundamentals of a Shirodhara done in the absolutely conventional way as its mention in the ayurvedic books.
