Shirodhara is an ancient Ayurvedic treatment known for its euphoric affects on the mind and entire nervous system. After preparing the head with a warm herbal infused oil, a stream of warm oil is poured continuously over the forehead. ”Shiro” means head and “dhara” means flow, the result is a peaceful, relaxed and present mind.
This treatment is paired with Cranial Sacral Therapy. Cranial sacral therapy is a gentle, noninvasive form of bodywork that addresses the bones of the head, spinal column and sacrum. The goal is to release compression in those areas which alleviates stress and pain.
It is also combined with sound therapies such as crystal and metal bowls, tuning forks, monocord, hapi drum, and koshi chimes. These beautiful and luminescent instruments emit an expansive sound that is healing for the body’s deeper tissues. Evocative of ancient temples, these instruments exude a healing matrix wherever they’re sounded. They provide grounding and help promote a stable, peaceful energy.
Benefits include a relief on tension, worry, fear and headache. Can relieve depression and regulate mood.
After the treatment, the outdoors spa is available for you to soak, shower and use the infrared sauna.
Approximately 60-75 minutes
