In-Home Ayurvedic Massage / Shirodhara
by Hillary Branoff
Ayurvedic Massage / Abhyanga:
When stimulated through this ancient therapy, the skin releases a pharmacy of healing chemicals that have health-promoting effects on the body/mind. In addition to feeling good, regular Ayurvedic massage detoxifies and tones the body’s tissues, increases circulation, calms the mind, and supports a strong immune function. Receiving Abhyanga with warm herbal oil is a deeply healing treatment that slows the aging process by rejuvenating the nervous system and detoxifying the lymphatic system.

Shirodhara is a continuous stream of warm oil over the forehead and third eye. It works primarily on the mental layer or "manomaya kosha" as it is known in Ayurveda. It is here, at this level, that the mind holds on to past impressions that create imbalanced desires and habitual patterns of behavior. It is believed that these impressions are held captive in the limbic system of the emotional cortex of the brain. It has been used to treat a variety of conditions including: migraines/headaches, eye diseases, sinusitis, allergic rhinitis, graying of hair, neurologial disorders, memory loss, insomnia, hearing impairment, tinnitus, depression, anxiety, vertigo, and Meniere's Disease.
