Day THREE. Part Two.
*I've had Shirodhara before*
Derives from two Sanskrit words: shiro and dhara. Shiro means head and dhara means to flow. It involves the warm and consistent flow of aromatic oils on the forehead, specifically on the ‘third eye’. As the oil strokes the third eye, it has a balancing effect on the deepest recesses of the brain, stimulating the endocrine system, the pituitary and pineal glands (for hormonal upsets) and pleasure neurotransmitters (for depression or emotional insecurity). The procedure is also said to synchronise alpha brain waves, enhancing blood circulation to the brain, improving mental clarity and generally releasing deeply trapped ama, or toxins. http://www.mindbodysoul.tv/health/shirodhara-massage/
It was a 7 hours spa treatment. Sirodhara, full body massage, scrub, facial, creambath and bath. What most pleasant about it is knowing that someone took the liberty to take care of you, just to put a smile on your face.
