Shirodhara is an amazing, unique body therapy from the ancient natural medical system Ayurveda. Shirodhara 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.
In the western alternative medicine world, I personally do not know of another therapy that has a similar impact on the nervous system, apart from an established meditation practice.
Because information on shirodhara is a bit scattered, I’ve compiled everything you need to know about shirodhara therapy into this one article. You’ll learn who benefits from shirodhara (and who does not), how shirodhara works, how to ensure you get a great shirodhara and how to prepare for a shirodhara treatment.
