Shirodhara is a luxuriant and easy way to achieve instant calm and rejuvenation. It derives from two Sanskrit words: shiro and dhara. Shiro meaning “head” and dhara meaning “to flow.” It involves the warm and consistent flow of aromatic oils on the forehead, specifically on the ‘third eye’. This is the chakra point just above and between the eyebrows that is said to be the seat of human consciousness. As the oil strokes the third eye, it has a balancing effect on the deepest recesses of the brain, stimulating the endocrine system, the pituitary and pineal glands (for hormonal upsets) and pleasure neurotransmitters (for depression or emotional insecurity). The procedure is also said to synchronize alpha brain waves, enhancing blood circulation to the brain, improving mental clarity and generally releasing deeply trapped ama, or toxins. Shirodhara has been used to treat a variety of conditions including eye diseases, sinusitis, allergic rhinitis, neurological disorders, memory loss, insomnia, hearing impairment, tinnitus, vertigo and certain types of skin diseases like psoriasis.

* Oil from a shirodhara treatment is taken home with the patient - following treatments using the same oil are $95.
These benefits are further enhanced after a massage or Abhyanga, when the body is already relaxed and in a receptive state.
A shirodhara session makes the hair oily. Please do not plan social events or outdoor events after your Shirodhara session. Try to give yourself time for rest & opt to stay indoors. It is recommended to keep oil on the body for minimum 2 hours (ideally 24 hours) as it continues to heal cells after the therapy.

My goal is to assess your constitution and the nature of imbalance and create a customized program for healing. I will guide you, educate and empower on the journey back to optimal health and wellbeing. Depending on the nature of the imbalance and the level of your commitment to make changes, it can take anywhere from three to twelve months to completely restore balance. Most people start seeing positive shifts in their health and symptoms within a week or two of implementing the recommendations. In the beginning it is
recommended that follow up appointments occur on a weekly or biweekly basis in order to sustain the momentum of the changes.
The initial 2 hour consultation will be followed within a week’s time by a 1.5 hour Report of Findings appointment. At this time we will discuss the treatment plan that I have developed for you including dietary recommendations and guidelines, lifestyle practices and herbal formulations. These visits could also include one on one ayurvedic cooking classes or a customized aromatherapy session. In addition
SKYPE and phone consultations available.
Customized herbal formulations are made from fresh organic therapeutic grade herbs. The cost of the formulations will depend on the ingredients, quantity and shipping. On average, a month’s supply of a formula costs $ 35.
