Is Shirodhara Effective For Relieving Migraines?

Shirodhara is a centuries-old Ayurvedic therapy for bringing peace of mind and inner calm. In this therapy, we pour medicinal oil in a specific pattern across the forehead.  Definitely, Shirodhara is effective for relieving migraines.

This therapy is considered as one of the most purifying and revitalizing methods. It was designed to not only eliminate different doshas from the body but also to reduce stress. It restores mental energy, and heals a wide range of illnesses. Because of how it’s constructed, it can serve multiple purposes.

Headaches and migraines can both benefit from Shirodhara:

Migraine is known as Suryavartha soola in Ayurveda. Here, Surya means Sun and avartha means arise of affliction, thus the aggravation of pain with light and heat.

Oils used in the Shirodhara technique have a considerable relaxing effect on the brain’s pulsing blood vessels due to their high levels of anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory compounds. The therapy improves one’s mood and helps ease headaches and migraines caused by stress.

Shirodhara is derived from the Sanskrit Shiro – meaning “head,” and Dhara – meaning “uninterrupted flow”. It is the practice of having medicated oil poured over one’s head in a constant stream for 45 to 90 minutes.

Shirodhara is a time-tested, all-natural method of treating migraines that also helps alleviate stress and brain fatigue. It involves a steady stream of calming oil, and thus is beneficial for calming and balancing the mind. It cures a variety of conditions, such as anxiety, sleeplessness, vertigo, and others, by acting on the brain’s peripheral nerves to produce the desired calming effect on the brain cells.
