Indian Head massage and Shirodhara

Indian Head massage and Shirodhara

The Indian head massage and shirodhara treatment is an amazing meditative and sedative treatment that is focused around the head but has an impact on the entire body's nerve and hormone system.


Shiro means forehead and dhara means liquid/flow.

Shirodhara is a very beautiful form of treatment, from the ancient natural medicine system's auyrveda. At shirodhara, a hot oil run poured out of a tin jar, quietly and continuously down the forhead and third eye of the person receiving the treatment. The comfortable oil flow creates vibrations to the many nerve connections at the head and this balances the nervous system and calms the body. The hormone system is also affected, for example regulates sleep and emotion-related hormones.

The treatment process

This very comfortable Indian headmassage with shirodhara, begins with a scalp massage with warm oil massaged from the skull and up. The head massage is followed by a neck massage, consisting of both gentle and firm strokes and long stretches, as well as a face massage with gentle strokes and deep pressure at meridians and energy points. After the deep Indian headmassage, it's time for shirodahara where the therapist accurately guides the tincan and lets the oil fly over the forehead, third eye and scalp. For the treatment, sesame oil is used as it is a neutral oil.
