Unique Healing Benefits of Shirodhara

26 Dec

The oldest form of natural healing technique, “Shirodhara” therapy, involves pouring liquids such as Oil, Milk, and Buttermilk or plain Water over the forehead of the person undertaking the therapy.

The name Shirodhara is a combination of two Sanskrit words Shiro (head) and Dhara (flow).

In Ayurveda, the different forms of Shirodhara are known as Ksheeradhara (use of Milk), Takradhara (use of buttermilk) Taildhara (use of oil) and Jaladhara (use of water). Shirodhara is one of the steps of Panchakarma.

Shirodhara is a therapy that balances and helps stabilize the mind. Depending on the therapy recommended by Panchkarma practitioners, any one of the above-mentioned liquid is poured in a thin steady stream directly on the forehead. Shirodhara is known to relax the mind, alleviate anxiety, reduce headaches, and expand awareness.

Shirodhara therapy can also be used to treat eye diseases, sinusitis, allergic rhinitis, greying of hair, neurological disorders, memory loss, insomnia, etc. The therapy is followed by a relaxing head massage.

So, what are the benefits of Shirodhara? Let’s find out.

  • Awaken Senses: Shirodhara activates the pituitary gland which awakens the senses. Pituitary gland helps control growth, blood pressure, metabolism, and other physical aspects.
  • Betters Nervous System: It helps in stimulating and relaxing the right nerves in the right manner to restore the balance of Pran Vayu.
