More about Shirodhara
Shirodhara is one of the most powerful treatments to relieve Vata (wind) in the mind. When Vata is in excess the mind can easily become overstimulated. The mind has a difficult time slowing down. This can lead to an inability to handle stress, creating nervousness, anxiety, depression, insomnia, fatigue and more. As oil is poured on the forehead, the nervous system is deeply stilled. The brain waves slow down and profoundly coordinates and calms the mind, body, and spirit. Once the brain quieted, the pranavaha and monovaha srotas begin to transport prana, oxygen, and other necessary nutrient to the brain.
With each successive shirodhara the mind systematically achieves an even deeper state of silence. It is like a clear alpine lake – the more still the water, the more clearly you can see the underlying imbalances.
The result: better brain function, mood stability, and improved stress handling ability.
