Shirodhara

A traditional Ayurvedic therapy for treatment of insomnia, anxiety + nervous system damage. 

The term shirodhara comes from the Sanskrit words shiro (head) and dhara (flow). It is a traditional Ayurvedic body therapy where a steady, gentle stream of warm oil is continuously poured over the forehead to help soothe and heal a frayed nervous system.

According to Ayurvedic teaching, the gentle but constant application stimulates healthy blood circulation to the brain and pituitary gland, while certain added herbs and essences can provide relief from symptoms of anxiety, migraines, insomnia and neuralgia.

The Lotus Room’s Shirodhara treatment is designed to cultivate a sense of deep mind/body relaxation from head to toe, giving your nervous system the opportunity to begin repairing itself organically.

Each session begins with a head, neck and shoulder massage, followed by the continuous application of warmed organic herbal oil poured over your head. 

While you slip into ShiroBliss you will be guided through a yoga nidra (yogic sleep) meditation.

At the end of your session you are gifted the oil to take home and use.
