What Is K.West Shirodhara Therapy?
In Shirodhara, an ancient Ayurvedic therapy, warm oil is poured in a continuous stream over the third eye point. This point is located on the forehead at the seat of the pituitary gland where nerves are highly concentrated. The gentle pressure of the oil creates a vibration, while the oil saturates the forehead and scalp, penetrating the nervous system.
Similar to meditation, body therapy is a cleansing process that allows you to go into a deep state of rest. At K.West, this treatment includes light body rocking massage to release tension, as well as a head massage.
Types of Shirodhara
In an Ayurvedic facial, treatments are selected to benefit a person’s individual dosha, or their energy type. The Shirodhara body therapy manifests similarly, but the continuous and rhythmic working of Shirodhara therapy is its hallmark. Each treatment targets the nervous system, not only minimizing fatigue and insomnia and promoting sound sleep but topically helping by improving the hair.
Benefits of Shirodhara
When you have a compromised nervous system, Shirodhara relieves symptoms. It can be used for disease-prevention in healthy people and is commonly associated with helping minimize:
- Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
- Sleep disorders from shift work
- Jet lag
- Stress and worry
- Tension and fear
In a positive turn, Shirodhara can:
- Improve energy
- Promote relaxation
- Allow for rest
- Calm a racing mind
- Boost mood
The natural relaxation prompted by Shirodhara will rejuvenate your face and soften any wrinkles or worry lines. Combine this wonderful side effect with a facial, and you will not only feel younger and calmer, you will look that way too.
Why Choose Shirodhara Therapy?
Your head is the control center of your body and what happens in your head directs the functions of the brain and spinal cord. The head is home to the pituitary gland, the captain of all endocrine glands, and, when activated and balanced properly, the pituitary gland allows for excellent sleep and stable hormones.
Shirodhara is beneficial for an unbalanced dosha. From insecurity and worry to anger and irritability, you can tell when your constitution is out of whack. The qualities of the oils or other liquid used in Shirodhara counteracts the unstable dosha, soothing and nourishing through the application of the oil.
The rest of your body will benefit from the serenity that Shirodhara promotes.
