Ayurveda ‘The Science of Life’ is a holistic health system dating back thousands of years, with two main goals; ‘to maintain the health of the healthy’ and ‘to heal the sick’. It is based on living in harmony with the cycles of nature and gives the wisdom required for people to fully understand and care for their individual true selves.

Shirodhara is derived from two sanskrit words: Shiro meaning head and Dhara meaning to flow. Using a constant flow of warm medicated oils on the forehead, with a focus on the ‘third eye’, this treatment is said to take a person to a state of calm and bliss.
By using warm medicated oils flowing on the forehead, Shirodhara helps to calm the nervous system and bring you into a meditative state. Worries, fears or anger will be washed away, hair will be rejuvenated and your mind will be nourished. Shirodhara is a rejuvenation therapy that can be a deeply nurturing and spiritual experience. It has been known to release serotonin and bring healthy blood circulation to the brain.
Please note: When booking in for a Shirodhara you will need to book in for an Initial Consultation first.
