Shirodhara

A precisely prepared herbalized oil is poured in a steady stream onto specific points on the forehead in a rhythmic manner. A conical heat-retaining pot, made of 5 sacred metals, is used to administer this treatment. As the warm oil runs over the forehead, the herbs act to gently rest the nervous system, and release deep-seated emotional and mental toxins. This is an intensely relaxing experience which is given at the end of the sequence of other Purvakarma and Panchakarma treatments.
