pancha karma bliss therapy
pancha karma bliss therapy


This is a blissful one-hour treatment where you enter a deep state of relaxation. This sublime treatment involves a warm oil bath gently flowing ("dhara") onto your forehead ("shiro"), which helps:

         Remove stress from the mind.
         Balance the emotions.
         Pacifies insomnia, depression, panic attacks and addictions.
         Deeply conditions hair.

In ancient Ayurveda texts, Shirodhara is usually recommended for at least 14 days. However, shorter treatments are still very beneficial. You emerge feeling so refreshed as if you have just completed a long, deep and blissful meditation.

"One who applies oil on his head regularly does not suffer from headache, baldness, graying of hair, nor does his hair fall. Strength of his head and forehead is especially enhanced; his hair becomes black, long and deep-rooted; his sense organs work properly; the skin of his face becomes brightened; applying oil on the head produces sound sleep and happiness." --Ayurvedic physician Charaka, Excerpt from the first text on Ayurveda compiled over 5,000 years ago.
