Stabilize Body & Mind With Ayurvedic Massage in Melbourne

Do you feel overwhelmed by the stresses of modern-day life? Are tension and stress your constant companions?

Stress is a killer that promotes despair and disease, yet modern day life leaves you little time to unwind and forget your daily tensions. Especially in a busy, modern city like Melbourne. 

You need to do something and fast!

What if we told you there was a quick and enjoyable way to achieve relief from this constant state of emergency?

In just one hour, or less, Shirodhara therapy will stabilize your body and mind, restoring it to a harmonious state.

What is Shirodhara Therapy?

Shirodhara is a type of ayurvedic massage. It’s a rejuvenating treatment that induces a relaxed state of awareness by focusing on the third eye.
The term originates from the Sanskrit word for ‘shiro’ meaning ‘head’ and ‘dhara’ which means ‘to pour’.

What’s Involved in Shirodhara?

During the treatment, you don’t need to do a thing.

You’ll lie on your back and relax while the therapist pours a continuous gentle stream of warm oil or medicated liquids onto your forehead and along the crown of your head, saturating your hair and scalp.

The therapist chooses a specific oil according to your physical and mental constitution, or dosha.

This ayurveda massage takes place in an atmosphere of complete silence which encourages alignment of the mind and body and ultimate relaxation. A head massage is usually included.

After a while you’ll experience a feeling of complete and utter relaxation. You’ll emerge from your treatment feeling thoroughly rejuvenated and ready to face your busy lifestyle head-on.

Usually the session lasts 30 to 60 minutes. The duration of the treatment depends on your age, dosha, and the severity of your problem.

The Benefits of a Shirodhara Massage

Shirodhara hot oil massage is mainly used to treat conditions like:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Hypertension
  • Nervousness
  • Migraine
  • Headache
  • Insomnia
  • Stress due to chronic disease

Shirodhara also stimulates and relaxes the nervous system, providing relief from stress-related afflictions as well as tension-related pain.

The warm oil is incredibly good for your hair and skin too, helping to prevent and reverse hair loss, eliminate dandruff, smooth damaged ends, and nourish the roots.

The Science Behind Shirodhara

Ancient practitioners have always considered the third eye, located between the eyebrows, as the body’s centre of intuition and energy.

Now, scientists are starting to agree with this ancient wisdom. They recognize how stimulating this area can act on the pituitary gland to induce relaxation, decrease stress and produce a state of alert calmness.

The pituitary gland is responsible for secreting hormones into your bloodstream. In this way, a Shirodhara treatment has a refreshing effect on every organ in your body.

Do You Need a Fast, Effective Way To De-Stress?

Practitioners have used ayurvedic massage techniques, like Shirodhara massage for centuries. It’s a totally safe and effective way to achieve the peace of mind you desire without harmful drugs.
