Warmed, herbalized oils or milk are poured over the forehead in a continuous stream which balances the brain waves and opens a profround state of relaxation which is similar to the state of being in the womb. Shirodhara is also called bliss therapy, and can have the effect of opening the third eye, wherein deep states of transcendental bliss may be experienced. Clinically, Shirodhara is the recommended therapy for all mental and nervous conditions, and is extremely helpful for anxiety, depression, anger, headaches, insomnia, stress related conditions, concentration and memory issues, as well as hormonal imbalances.
Additionally, Shirodhara enhances meditation and awareness, and aids in releasing deep stored memories and trauma that have not fully been integrated into the nervous system. It is a profound tool for restoring order, mindfulness, ease and clarity to the mind and heart.
