Ayurveda is a 5,000-year-old system of natural healing that has its origins in the ancient Vedic culture of India. Although suppressed during years of foreign occupation, Ayurveda has been enjoying a major resurgence in both its native land and throughout the world.
The objective of ayurvedic therapy is to create a new sense of balance. This balance is achieved through the applications of specific body treatments, the use of medicinal herbs and the alterations in one’s lifestyle.
Shirodhara is an ancient Ayurvedic treatment that was once reserved for the Royalty. With this treatment a steady flow of warm medicinal oil is poured onto one’s forehead. It creates a very deep mental, emotional and physical relaxation that must be experienced to be believed.
