Shirodhara is an ancient Ayurvedic healing practice performed in India for over 2,000 years. It is the application of warmed sesame oil (til-infused with herbs) gently poured onto the forehead for an extended period of time. Herbal oils are gently placed into the nose, as rare Ayurvedic essential oils are placed onto the hands. It is performed with the client lying face up on a massage table in a relaxing environment. </P> <P class='Asana'> Traditionally  Shirodhara technique is used to calm the nerves, harmonize vata constitutions, restore the nerves, release stored emotions, and purify the mind. In Ayurvedic Medicine, it is considered an important tool in the pursuit of higher states of consciousness. Shirodhara has been traditionally shown to help with fatigue, mental exhaustion, anxiety, insomnia, some mental disorders, headache, excessive thinking, nervousness, and many other conditions commonly affecting Americans in today s active lifestyle.<BR> Many people experience profound levels of insight and emotional healing after shirodhara.
