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.

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.
