Shirodhara is the most popular Ayurvedic treatment in the West. The word shiro means “head” and the word dhara means “stream”.
If you’re experiencing difficulty focusing, insomnia, fatigue, or other mind overstimulation effects, Shirodhara can help–both alone and as a strong complement to many Western treatment plans.
This treatment involves pouring a stream of oil over the “third eye” area of the forehead. Benefits include the calming of an overstimulated mind, improved sleep and mental clarity, and stress reduction.
