Editor's Note from Julie Cerrato: Shirodhara is truly an amazing Ayurvedic therapy that can work wonders on disorders caused by Vata aggravation. Nervousness, anxiety, depression, insomnia and overstimulation, just to name a few, are all reduced with shirodhara. "Shiro" means "head" and "dhara" means "stream." In shirodhara, a warm oil stream is continuously poured over the "sthapani marma" (the space between and above the eyebrows) otherwise known as "the third eye," as it has a soothing effect on the hypothalamus. Shirodhara is thought to sync frenetic neurons and alpha waves to greatly improve mental clarity, create stability and impart calm.
