This is an ancient technique in Ayurveda in which warm herbal oil is slowly and steadily poured over the center of the forehead (spiritual eye center) for a continuous flow of 20-30 minutes. Shiras means head and Dhara means unbroken flow. Shirodhara is a deeply nurturing psycho-spiritual experience that attunes the body/mind towards spontaneous healing. It is renowned for its ability to release serotonin and encourage a balance of mind, body & spirit. It is a energetic massage to the Pituitary gland and helps to reset and balance our endocrine system.
