The change in work culture and lifestyle has given a negative impact on our health. The vain attempts of advanced treatments have encouraged a lot to walk back to the traditional ayurvedic methods. Shirodhara Ayurvedic treatment offered by Global Ayurvedic Centre is the ultimate way to get relief from all your stress and sleep-related problems. The unique features of Shirodhara Ayurveda incorporate numerous herbs, oils and other spices to solve the root cause of your health issues.


       Shirodhara Ayurvedic is considered one of the most rejuvenating therapy in Ayurveda. It is completely capable of refreshing both your mind and body. As the name indicates “Shiro” means head and “Dhara” means flow. A continuous flow of medicated herbal oil to the forehead associated with various massage techniques will reinforce your balanced condition. The forehead is the place where a lot of nerve endings are located. A Shirodhara massage performed by our experts will stimulate your nervous system. This happens as a result of the absorption of medicated herbal oil applied while conducting the therapy. Our treatment focuses on completely detoxifying and eliminating all the impurities from your body. All your stress-related illnesses such as headaches and insomnia will be addressed. With a proper course of Shirodhara therapy, your hypothalamus and pituitary glands will be relaxed and induce sleep. Your blood circulation to the scalp and brain will be much improved after the treatment. After all, this is helpful in regulating your mood swings, well-being and happiness.


Before getting into the procedure, we have to know that there are a lot of categories available in Shirodhara. They are Thaila dhara, Dugadha dhara, Takra dhara, Kwatha dhara, Jala dhara. What segregates each of these is the ingredients used for massage and the purpose of treatment. In Thaila Dhara a mixture of ayurvedic oils are used while in Dugadha Dhara, the main ingredient is milk. Takra Dhara uses buttermilk for massage. Decoctions made by using various herbs are the main component of Kwatha Dhara. Finally for Jala Dhara coconut water is the main ingredient for the treatment. Massage suitable for your medical condition will be described by our doctors. It is determined by a detailed analysis of your Vata, Pitta and kapha imbalance.

Shirodhara treatment is preferred to be done earlier in the morning to get maximum results. Your head and scalp will be properly massaged by the therapist before the treatment. Following this, you will be asked to lie down on your back at the massage table. A cloth of appropriate size will be placed under your neck for support. After that specially prepared medicated herbal fluid is transferred into a pot with a hole. This pot will be positioned by the masseur in a way that the fluid will be dripped exactly to the forehead in a rhythmic manner. The oil flow from the pot will be in a uniform motion. The pot will oscillate from one side to another and lateral portions of the forehead. It is important to maintain the temperature of the oil. So, once the oil in the pot cools down, it will be replaced by heated oil with optimum temperature. This process will be continued for up to 30 minutes. A light head massage will be given during the entire process which will stimulate the nerve system. After the procedure, the patient will be advised to go home and take a shower after one hour.
