The wellness system of Ayurveda uses many types of massage techniques, of which, abhyanga & shirodhara are most common. Students of Abhyanga therapy begin with learning anatomy & physiology through energy, knowledge of marma points, technique and oil & herb preparation.
Shirodhara is effective in mental stress and related problems as well as diseases of
the ear, nose, throat, migraines, paralysis, loss of speech, loss of memory, insomnia, alcoholism and even insanity. For deep relaxation, insomnia, scattered or compulsive thought processes, stress reduction and meditative bliss, Shirodhara is an ancient therapy used for centuries for restoring an inner calm in the mind and balance in the emotions. It begins with a gentle dripping of warm Ayurvedic oil onto the “third eye”, followed by a revitalizing scalp massage.
In this profoundly relaxing treatment warm herbal oils are poured in a gentle stream over the forehead to synchronize brain waves; coordinate and calm the mind, body, and spirit;and soothes the central nervous system, profoundly relaxing the mind and balancing the emotions. This will also stimulate production of serotonin.
