Shirodhara is calming and relaxing treatment done using warm Ayurvedic herbalized oil. Most Herbalized oil is treated with herbs like jatamansi, brahmi, shatavari that calm and ground the mind and nervous system. When shirodhara is done in series of 3 ,7  or 14 days it proves to be very effective to the mind and nerves. This treatment aims to pacify doshas Vata and Pitta which reside in head besides other places ( Read more on Doshas from my ‘Concept of Doshas’ blog page). Best time to do shirodhara is in the later part of day when mind is allowed to rest for the day.
