Shir means head and Dhara means to pour. So, Shirodhara means a purifying and detoxification technique used to manage physical and mental exertion and fatigue. It rejuvenates the mind and body to sharpen the senses and stimulates brain cells to aid in memory. This treatment induces a deeply relaxing and blissful state of consciousness which can help relieve pain, eliminate anxiety and fear.
In this therapy, warm oil is poured in a continuous stream over the third eye point also known as the seat of the master pituitary gland where nerves are highly concentrated. This gentle pressure of oil creates vibration and these vibrations help in balancing the gland’s secretions. Content used for Shirodhara maybe oil, ghee, decoction, milk, buttermilk, almond oil or coconut water.
It is very helpful in polio, paralysis, autism, attention deficit disorder, headaches, migraine, chronic fatigue syndrome, stress management, psychological problems, neurological conditions, hypertension, hair fall, anxiety neurosis, sleeplessness, skin diseases, jet lag, and post-traumatic stress disorder.
