Kelsey is undergoing her Spring cleansing with a juice fast this year! 🍏🍊🥬🥕🥭 After consideration, she and Karin felt she was suitable for her first juice cleanse. We thought we would share a bit about juicing from an Ayurvedic perspective, as we often get a lot of questions about juicing from our clients.

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.

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.
