Shirodhara is our most meditative and relaxing treatment in which a soothing stream of warm organic herbalized oil is poured over the forehead and onto the sixth chakra, your intuitive energetic center. The marma points of the face and head are also massaged. Touching a marma point changes the body’s biochemistry and can unfold radical, biochemical change in one’s makeup. Stimulation of these inner pathways signals the body to produce exactly what it needs, including hormones and neurochemicals that heal the body, mind and consciousness. This deep dimension of marma therapy has the potential to sooth the nervous system and unfold spiritual healing.
