Practised for over 5000 years, shirodhara originates from India and is based on the ancient principles of Ayurveda. Translated from the Sanskrit as a holistic healing science, Ayurveda aims to harmonise the body, mind, senses and soul. It involves the warm and consistent flow of aromatic oils and milk on the forehead, specifically on the third eye. This is the chakra point just above and between the eyebrows. It is said to be the seat of human consciousness. The oil/milk is allowed to flow over the scalp and through the hair, creating a blissful sensation. As the oil strokes the third eye, it has a balancing effect on the deepest recesses of the brain, stimulating the endocrine system, the pituitary and pineal glands (for hormonal upsets) and pleasure neurotransmitters (for depression or emotional insecurity). The procedure is also said to synchronise alpha brain waves, enhancing blood circulation to the brain, improving mental clarity and generally releasing deeply trapped ama, or toxin.
You are then left for a few minutes to relax and assimilate the experience. Shirodhara truly honours the body as a sacred temple and a vehicle for the divine spirit within.
