Shirodhara: Shirodhara is a continuous stream of warm oil over the forehead and third eye. It works primarily on the mental layer or "manomaya kosha" as it is known in Ayurveda. It is here, at this level, that the mind holds on to past impressions that create imbalanced desires and habitual patterns of behavior. It is believed that these impressions are held captive in the limbic system of the emotional cortex of the brain. It has been used to treat a variety of conditions including: migraines / headaches, eye diseases, sinusitis, allergic rhinitis, graying of hair, neurological disorders, memory loss, insomnia, hearing impairment, tinnitus, depression, anxiety, vertigo, & Ménière's disease. Some of the Benefits of Shirodhara: Achieves an instant state of calm and rejuvenation.
