Introduction to Ksheeradhara
Ksheeradhara is one of the most practiced Ayurvedic treatments in Ayurveda. Ksheeradhara means “flow of milk”. Ksheeradhara treatment in Ayurveda includes a continuous flow of herbal milk over the targeted part of massage or head and body. It is quite similar to Shirodhara treatment in Ayurveda, but Ksheeradhara has a more cooling effect on the body, and due to that ksheeradhara treatment is highly recommended during the summer months or in circumstances where our body is in need of relaxing or cooling effects.
The herbal milk made from our experienced ayurvedic therapists which are poured on your body as a part of treatment acts as a moisturizer that helps in relieving hypertension or stress, anxiety, and tension. Ksheeradhara Ayurvedic treatment is very beneficial for skin and hair care as it really works because it also helps in enhancing your skin’s glow, this simple yet effective process is ideal for patients who are suffering from Vata and Pitta dominance, migraines, stress, and insomnia. Our ksheeradhara treatment is done with milk (Ksheera) where cow’s milk or buffalo’s milk is used along with various herbs are added to make the milk completely medicinal and effective for the illness. Ksheeradhara is considered an important therapy session among Ayurvedic treatments and measures for the sufferings. If Ksheeradhara is done for a targeted part like the head alone is called Shirodhara, if it is done for the whole body except the head, it is called Sarvangadhara. At the first step, our medicinal oil is applied to the head then after that, warm medicated milk is poured from a certain height in a rhythmic manner to the specific area and is rubbed into the body to treat the ailment. The therapy is practiced for a period of 7 to 21 days.
