Head Region Therapies

Shiro abhyangam ( head massage)
All the senses are located in the head region therefore all the therapies provided in this region cause a direct advantage to the senses. And this is the reason why Ayurveda gives distinctive attention to the head. Shiro abhyangam revitalizes the senses, reduces stress thus results in sound sleep and strengthens the hair by reducing baldness and stopping untimely graying. Oils are applied in the roots of the hair and scalp therefore the skin also benefits greatly through this therapy. A smooth and swift methodology of shiro abhyangam is presented at Shreenivas Ayurvedic Centre to ensure that all the above rewards are successfully obtained.

Shirodhara ( medicated liquid streaming on forehead)
In Sanskrit, shiro means “head” and dhara means “flow” therefore shirodhara literally means to receive a continuous stream of warm, medicated liquid onto one’s forehead which creates a brain state very similar to deep meditation. The liquid chosen depends on the patient’s constitution and health disorders. It is very obvious that the process highly relaxes the patient and thus helps in combating fatigue, mental disorders, anxiety and stress. Since the treatment is directly given on the head, shirodhara is also used to treat head and eye related problems. Other than simply giving the treatment, Shreenivas ayurvedic Centre offers an environment absolutely suitable for the process thus enhancing its benefits.


Shirolepanam ( herbal paste application on head)
This is also a head treatment whereby medicinal herbs and other powders are mixed together to form a paste. This paste is applied on the head region and left for some time. Shreenivas Ayurvedic Centre offers this treatment for requiring patients.

Shiro pichu ( oil retension on head with cotton pad)
Shiropichu is a simple but very effective head treatment process. For this procedure, a fabric material is soaked in medicinal oil and placed on the head for a prescribed time period depending on the ailment/requirement. It is very beneficial in head related problems too and is provided upon prescription at Shreenivas Ayurvedic Centre.
