About this course

Shirodhara is a classical ayurvedic treatment, in which warm oil is poured in a continuous stream across the forehead. Massage of the marma points on the head, neck, scalp and feet is also part of treatment. It’s a blissful, relaxing and rejuvenating therapy that leaves your skin glowing and eyes bright. It is part of Ayurvedic purification therapy to help eliminate disease causing toxins and replenish the tissues with nourishment and is known as the golden way to attain longevity. By stimulating the master gland, which controls many of our body systems, it brings the body into balance and good health. It quietens the mind and senses and helps bring about hormonal balance allowing the body’s healing mechanisms to release stress from the nervous system. Marma points on head and feet are taught as part of pre and post massage. Hot Stone layout is also demonstrated.
