Shirodhara is an amazing, unique body therapy and has a profound impact on the nervous system. That means, the treatment directly and immediately calms, relaxes and has a cleansing effect on the mind and nerves.
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.
The 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.
Shirodhara is a great treatment for a compromised nervous system. and can help hypertension, tension, worry, fear and headache as well as depression.

The traditional ayurvedic facial consists of an initial deep cleansing with a cleanser specific to your Dosha, followed by exfoliation with a herbal exfoliant which smoothes the skin and allows for better absorption of the warmed herbal oil that is massaged onto the face, neck and shoulders. Steaming of the face follows allowing the pores to open and the skin to become further hydrated. A decadent facial massage assists with replenishing lost moisture and helping with detoxification before application of a herbal face mask. All products used are traditional ayurvedic formulations sourced directly from India.
