The Ksheeradhara treatment includes a constant flow of herbal milk over the head and body, instead of the regular oil concoction in other Ayurvedic treatments. It is quite similar to Shirodhara, but Ksheeradhara has a cooling effect on the body and is recommended during the summer months or in circumstances that require relaxing or cooling effects.
The herbal milk that is poured on your body acts as a moisturizer which helps relieve any stress, anxiety, and tension; It’s also used for skin and hair care. The Ksheeradhara treatment works like a charm because it enhances your skin’s glow, the simple yet effective process is suitable for patients who are suffering from Vata and Pitta dominance, migraines, stress, and insomnia.
How does Ksheeradhara treatment work?
The Ksheeradhara process duration is forty minutes and it’s conducted over seven to twenty-one days, the duration can be altered depending on the client’s mental and physical condition. The milk contains various herbal extracts and it’s included in two main Ksheeradhara treatments, Sarvangadhara and Shirodhara.
Sarvangadhara is done by covering the entire body, except the head, with milk. While Shirodhara treatment is only done to the head. The milk is heated to a lukewarm temperature and it’s taken in a dhara vessel. It’s then allowed to pour from the vessel onto the forehead. The milk is poured in a constant stream over the forehead, particularly the glabellar region. For Sarvangadhara, the herbal milk is poured in a constant stream all over the body.
The constant stream and pouring of herbal milk help stimulate and soothe the hypothalamus, which regulates the pituitary gland and induces sleep.
