The therapy is known for its calming and balancing effects on the nervous system. It helps soothe the mind, relieve stress, anxiety, and mental fatigue. Shirodhara is believed to balance the doshas (Vata, Pitta, and Kapha) in the body and promote overall well-being. Additionally, it can be beneficial for promoting healthy hair and scalp.

Swedna (Steam Bath)

Ayurvedic steam bath, also known as Swedana, is a traditional therapeutic practice from Ayurveda, the ancient Indian system of medicine. Swedana involves using steam to induce sweating and promote detoxification, relaxation, and overall well-being.
The combination of heat and herbal steam is believed to open up the pores of the skin and help eliminate toxins from the body through sweating. It also enhances blood circulation, loosens stiff muscles, and can be helpful in alleviating certain joint and muscular pains.

Unlike many modern detox diets, which may involve extreme fasting or restrictive measures, Ayurvedic detoxification focuses on gentle and nourishing practices to promote overall well-being.
