A Day at Hamsa Ayurveda & Yoga

ayurvedic-spa-chicago

After the Abhyanga treatment, I received another service called the Shirodhara. This treatment is for the purpose of relaxing the nervous system and to promote an inward journey. Shirodhara consists of pouring warm oils on the forehead over the hairline. This specific process takes about 10 minutes, and it definitely put me in a euphoric dreamlike state. I was completely stress free and centered during Shirodhara. Hamsa also heats their oil with fire rather than in a crock pot to prevent any tarnishing of the ingredients.

    This is a great article and I love the corresponding pictures. I have been researching Ayurveda for the past year and I have heard of these centers. I am going to look for one in my local area. A friend of mine actually went to such a center in India and had a similar experience. She was asked to strip down fully and they even bathed her. I don't know if I would be so daring!
