Not only does it bring you to a state of deep relaxation, it has tremendous healing benefits as well. Curing ailments from insomnia, to hypertension to depression, this natural Ayurvedic therapy has a lot to offer.
What is Shirodhara?
Shirodhara is performed by pouring warm herbal medicated oil in a continuous flow over the forehead for a length of 30 -40 minutes. Warm oil (or other liquid) pours in a continuous stream over the forehead or ‘ajna marma’, an area where nerves are highly concentrated. The pressure of the oil onto the forehead creates a vibration. The oil saturates the forehead and scalp and penetrates into the nervous system. he gentle pressure and soothing warmth of the oil allow the body, mind and nervous system to experience a deep state of rest, similar to meditation.
From this seemingly simple therapy, the results are astounding. First and foremost, it causes a decrease in blood pressure, leading to decreased activity in the central nervous system, resulting in tranquility of mind. The experience is of passive meditation, where all mental activity is cleansed away and you naturally drop into a deep state of centered awareness. From this state of pure consciousness, your entire physiology is relaxed and the potential for healing diseases of the body and mind are realized.

How Does Shirodhara Work?
According to Ayurveda, shirodhara is beneficial for Vata and Pitta dosha. When out of balance, Vata dosha exhibits as fear, insecurity, worry, racing thoughts. Out of balance Pitta dosha exhibits as anger, irritability, frustration, judgment.
The gentle pressure of the oil falling onto the forehead may also play a role in inducing rest. In the procedure of Shirodhara, particular pressure and vibration is created over the forehead. This vibration along with little temperature may activate the functions of thalamus and the basal fore brain which then brings the amount of serotonin and catecholamine to the normal stage inducing the sleep.
Again, it is explained in modern text books of physiology that pressure has an effect on impulse conduction through tactile and thermo receptors. If prolonged pressure is applied to a nerve, impulse conduction in interrupted and part of the body may go to rest. In Dhara therapy, prolonged and continuous pressure due to pouring of the medicated liquid may cause tranquility of mind and induce natural sleep.
Combining the blissful, tranquilizing effect Shirodhara has on the mind, with the vast health benefits it offers the body, it is easy to conclude that this natural Ayurvedic therapy can benefit virtually everyone in today’s modern world.
