Shirodhara - The Liquid pouring treatment for the Head

Shirodhara is the pouring of medicated oil, milk or buttermilk on the forehead for a specific time period. The liquid is made to drip exactly on the forehead for the best results. When oil is used it is also called Thaila Dhara, and when milk or buttermilk is used it is called Ksheera Dhara. The therapy is done with help of two people. One of them holds the vessel which is for pouring the liquid on the forehead. The liquid is collected after the drip in a vessel and it is again put in the dripping vessel by the other person. It is a great way to relax the mind and particularly the nerves in the brain.
