90 min | $275

Shirodhara has been practised for over 5,000 years as a way of calming mental activity and bringing deep relaxation to the nervous system. It is a key ritual within Ayurveda, a holistic approach to health and wellbeing that supports your body to return to balance and access its innate capacity to heal and restore itself. In this blissful and nurturing treatment, stress and anxiety melt away, the body and mind come into harmony, sleep improves, mental clarity returns, and you remember that creativity and vitality are part of the natural state.

Benefits of Shirodhara:

  • reduces physical, mental and emotional stress
  • lessens anxiety 
  • improves your quality of sleep and helps with insomnia
  • increases energy and vibrancy 
  • improves mental clarity and creativity 

Shirodhara is a treatment personalised to you, or, more specifically, to your particular doshic type, the balance of elemental energies within you that gives rise to your physical and mental constitution.

During an initial consultation period Saroj determines your dosha before settling you in for a luxurious head and foot massage with rich oils. Then you are invited to lie back as a warm stream of herb-infused oil or nutrient-rich buttermilk is poured onto various parts of the forehead, including the ajna marma, or third-eye chakra. This point is gently stimulated, calming the electrical activity of the brain and bringing your whole system into a state of deep rest and restoration.

Let Saroj take you on this journey that is luxuriant, nurturing and deeply relaxing, as well as a powerful treatment to support your wellbeing.
