The Bliss Therapy ~ Combination of Abhyanga&Shirodhara
Experience the bliss of these therapies as you are guided into a deep state of rejuvenation. Your treatment begins with an inhalation experience made with essential oils for your Dosha, as your feet soak in a copper basin. Then your therapist will apply oil onto your scalp and hair for calming the mind and tuning into your body. Next, warm medicinal oils will be poured over you in a full body anointment. Experience your mind come to total stillness under the flow of medicinal oils crowning your head.
The treatment involves abhyanga (described above), and Shriodhara. Shirodhara is the methodical pouring of warm medicinal over the forehead in a slow downward stream, coating the crown of the head. This therapy synchronizes brain waves, calms the nervous system allowing the Parasympathetic Nervous System to activate. It improves the quality of rest, calms anxiety, reduces stress, supports and facilitates a meditative state of mind that creates deeper connection with one’s Third Eye Chakra.
