Shirodhara

Shirodhara – The Third Eye Therapy

Includes head, face, and neck therapy with warm, herbal oil
60 minutes / $100

Shirodhara is the most popular therapy in Ayurveda. The third eye is in the middle of your forehead. It is the central point of your nervous system. A steady flow of warm oil is dripped through a beautiful vintage copper apparatus onto your forehead, running through your hair and is one of the most divinely relaxing experiences ever. Besides being amazingly relaxing, it is a hot oil treatment for your hair. “Shiro” means head, and “dhara” is the continuous flow of liquid.

Plan to do this treatment when you can leave the oil in your hair, and sleep on a towel or at least leave it in for a couple hours before showering. It’s amazing for your hair and scalp.
