Shirodhara

This is a classic ayurvedic treatment designed to induce a state of meditation as it profoundly calms the nervous system. Your forearms, hands, lower legs and feet are massaged in traditional fashion. An Indian balancing bowl is used on your feet, and marma points are addressed to balance the energies of the body. The therapist directs a stream of warm herb-infused oil over the third eye and forehead to de-stress the mind and emotions, then massages the oil into hair and scalp, which nourishes as it soothes.
