Shirodhara is a treatment done over the head especially over the forehead in which the medicated liquids are poured in a gentle stream over the forehead of an individual. This is carried out for a particular time and can be done in many sessions depending on the condition of the disease and diseased.

Shirodhara or Shiro Dhara consists of two words i.e., Shiro means Head and Dhara means pouring in a stream. Thus Shirodhara means pouring the liquid medicines in a stream over the head of an individual for a stipulated amount of time. It is usually associated or begins with a full-body herbal oil message but can also be individual.


Shirodhara is used for ages in a variety of treatment conditions like sinusitis, hair loss, greying of hair, allergic rhinitis, tinnitus, vertigo, insomnia, memory loss, and other neurological disorders. It is found helpful even in Meniere’s disease and certain skin diseases. But it is mostly preferred in conditions like stress and anxiety.


The Shirodhara – Ayurveda Massage in Sydney is basically named into various types depending on the liquid used as Ksheeradhara (medicated milk is used), Thakradhara (Buttermilk is used), Taildhara (oil is used) Kashyadhara (medicated decoction is used), and Jaladhara (water is used)


Individuals are made to sit comfortably on a chair and herbal oil massage is done over the head and then he/ she is made to lie down in a supine position on the Shirodhara table. The eyes of the individual are covered with cotton to prevent the entry of liquid into the eyes. From a particular distance, the liquid is made to flow from the pot which is placed over the forehead in an oscillatory way. The liquid is again collected, made warm, and poured again; this procedure lasts for around 60 to 90 minutes depending on the condition. The procedure in Ayur Healthcare is done under the guidance of the experienced and knowledgeable Panchkarama B.A.M.S, MD doctors to prevent any complications.

Shirodhara normalizes the functions of hormones that regulate sleep and emotions by relaxing the hypothalamus in the brain. It also makes the individual strong and immune to physical and mental stress and thus prevent many life-inducing psychosomatic illnesses. Shirodhara works on the hypothalamus of the head which can be correlated to the roots of the trees. If the roots are healthy then the chances of the tree being healthy are more. The head controls the entire body mechanics and dynamics. The calming effect produced by Shirodhara can be correlated to the effect obtained with meditation.

Importance of Ayurvedic Medicine in Modern Life and Benefits

Importance of Ayurvedic Medicine in Modern Life and Benefits. Ayurveda is an ancient science of life, which existed in human societies before the applying of recent science to health. Ayurveda literally means, “Science of life”. AYU means life/life span and VEDA means science/ knowledge. It’s not just pathies where diseases are being cured. Ayurveda teaches everything, from healthy conception (bringing life into the world) to its proper upbringing and healthy living thereafter.


Ayurveda has two basic aims: First, to maintain the health of a healthy person, and second, to alleviate the disorders of the diseased person. So, Ayurveda has two different aims:

1) The preventive aspect and

2) The curative aspect.

The preventive aspect deals with the daily regimen, night regimen, and seasonal routine. These are important within the prevention of disease, and promotion of ideal health and the curative aspect means treatment of the diseased person with help of the various type of herds and minerals formulations as per the patient and diseased conditions, in severe condition purification therapy is very useful to cure the disease of its root causes. Ayurveda recommends several herbs and purification therapies as per the condition of the disease. We could consider Ayurveda as a preventive perspective instead of a curative one. and since the old saying goes, “Prevention is better than cure”. It’s imperative to remain a watch on our day to day unhealthy habits. Humans have outgrown themselves immensely from their primitive selves. we have a world at our fingertips, and other people are juggling across oceans within the blink of a watch. But what lacks here is ‘PEACE OF MIND’. it’d appear to be an unessential thing, but a peaceful mind can make the soul happy unlike the rest, and a healthy body keeps your mind at peace and that can be easily achieved by following a healthy diet and lifestyle.

The unique feature of Ayurveda is that it gives more importance to holistic treatment and disease will be treated from its root cause and it doesn’t re-occur.


Ayurveda is the first medicinal system that deals with the prevention of healthcare management through followed the various guidelines described in classical texts, such as Daily regimen-Daily routine schedule (Dincharya), night time regimen(Ratricharya) which helps to preventions of metabolic disease and lifestyle disease, and Ritucharya-seasonal regimen (guidelines for prevention from seasonal disorders due to environmental changes).


Ayurvedic treatment includes panchakarma therapy in  Sydney that is five purification therapies using purgatives or laxatives medication for pitta dosha (gastric and enzymes) related disorders, therapeutic vomiting for Kapha dosha (immunity) related disorder, medicated enema for Vata dosha (nervous system) related disorder, nasal administration of medicines for the disease of ENT, and blood purification for various skin disorders. Dietary and lifestyle interventions are initiated per the disease conditions and as per the Prakriti (physical and mental constitution) of the person. The dose of medication decided as per the digestive fire of the patient, the strength of the patient, the strength of the disease. but modern medicine advises deciding the dose of medication per weight or expanse of the body.

ayurveda Herbs

Ayurvedic medicine is becoming increasingly popular worldwide, with many chronic conditions responding well. While conventional medicine dominates many fields during this market, it doesn’t always outer form traditional ayurvedic approaches. Conventional medicine frequently relies on life long-lasting medication, on which patients come to depend. Most often many medicines have various dangerous side effects and withdrawal symptoms which can cause organ damage most commonly affected to the kidney and liver. In such situations, Ayurvedic herbal medicine is very effective and useful. Patients generally respond well to Ayurvedic treatments. Patients start their conventional medications after their diagnosis of any kind of disease, so Ayurvedic treatments are usually undergone with/or after conventional medical approaches.


Ayurveda has excellent effective medicine and therapy for many chronic diseases and also helps to improve patient’s symptoms by reducing their cortisone and analgesic medicine and improve their quality of life. Ayurveda seeks to normalize body functions with varied techniques including advice on food and activity, internal herbal preparations, purification treatments (Panchakarma), and surgical methods. For diagnosis, the Ayurvedic physicians at Ayur Healthcare will do disease analysis with deep and detailed examinations and physical and mental constitution of every individual for diagnosis of the disorder and planned the customized treatments for every patient as per their physical constitution.
