From the sanskrit Shiro : head and Dhara : flow.

This technique used in the indian culture for 5000 years treatspsychosomatic problems by inducing a deep relaxation. It's a care particularly recommanded for Vata people.

After a skull massage with a special organic oil, which prepare the patient to receive Shirodhara, I pour a luke warm medicinal oil, in a rythmic and continuous way, on the forehead, the scalp and hair of the patient.


This soothing care is very effective to reduce stress and treat depression linked diseases, anxiety and mental fatigue.

The oil poured on the forehead stimulates the peripherical nerves of the skin to the brain. Then there is a serotonin releasing and  stimulation of the parasympathic nervous system responsible of reduction of stress, relaxation, sleep.
