Shirodhara Distance Learning Online Course

Shirodhara is an Ayurvedic treatment which involves gently pouring warmed liquids over the forehead and in particular the ‘third eye’. It was developed by vaidyas (practitioners of Ayurveda) in Kerala, India for use in restorative therapy and can be one of the steps involved in Panchakarma. The name comes from the Sanskrit words ‘shiro’ meaning ‘head’ and ‘dhara’
which means ‘flow’. The liquids used in a shirodhara treatment depend on what is being treated, but can include oil, milk, buttermilk, coconut water, or even plain water. Develop the skill to use this ancient healing practice to treat stress, anxiety, headaches and other head and neck problems.

Ayurveda is the worlds oldest holistic healthcare system (Healing system).
It is a comprehensive system of healthcare originating in India over 5,000
years ago. Ayurveda is an ancient philosophy based on deep understanding of
the human body, mind and spirit. Its theories and remedies for a healthy
mind and body have endured for over 5000 years, during which time a wealth
of knowledge and practical experience has been accumulated, confirming the
safety and efficacy of an Ayurvedic way of life. Ayurveda is derived from
two Sanskrit words: ‘Ayur’ meaning life and ‘Veda’ meaning
knowledge/science.

The aim of ayurveda is in prevention and promoting positive health, beauty
and long life. It encompasses the food we eat, weather, astrology,
crystals, meditation, yoga, exercise, pulse, sound, energy and massage
therapy.

In our modern world where antibiotics often fail to work and other drugs
have harmful side effects, it is no wonder that many people are seeking out
traditional holistic healing treatments and realising that the mind and body
can work together to achieve wellness and balance.
