Juicing diets are becoming increasingly popular. Perhaps you have tried one yourself, watched a documentary on the benefits or read countless articles about the topic. No doubt, the cleansing qualities of fruits and vegetables can reset the body. True, there are benefits for the body and the mind to completing a fast or cleanse.

Have you experienced a Shirodhara treatment?

Shirodhara is by far the most iconic treatment of Ayurveda. It is considered the King of all treatments, as it treats a wide variety of conditions in Ayurvedic clinical practice.

The name Shirodhara, comes from the two Sanskrit words Shiras meaning ‘head’ and Dhara meaning ‘to pour’. This deeply relaxing and nurturing treatment involves the continuous pouring of warm medicated oil over the forehead, using a pot with a tap that controls the flow of oil. The oil is gently poured from side to side across the forehead, at times resting over the midpoint of the forehead.
