Shirodhara is a classical Ayurvedic treatment that is used to calm the mind and balance Vata. When Vata is out of balance a person can exhibit nervousness, insomnia, anxiety, depression, and restlessness in the body and mind. We begin by grounding and placing a warm herbal pack below the naval to bring the Vata energy from the mind down to the seat of Vata. By massaging the hands and feet, marma points and minor chakras are activated. The Sirodhara uses a gentle stream of warm herb-infused oil that is slowly released onto the third eye or ajna chakra on the center of the forehead. The oil is then massaged into the scalp with deep concentration on the marma or vital energy points. The session is completed with massage of the facial marma points.
