Rebalance Your Clients with the Complete Shirodhara Kit

Ayurvedic spas are becoming increasingly popular. Want to try a new service to bring in an entirely new clientele? Or even surprise your existing clients with an exciting new service?

Ayurvedic practice is considered a medicine that treats mind, body, soul and the universe as one being. Its belief holds that all things, including people, are composed of the five elements of water, fire, earth, air and space. If the balance of these five elements becomes disrupted within a person, illness occurs. Rebalance is possible through Ayurvedic practices to restore the five elements and regain health and happiness.

Interested yet? Take a look at the Copper Complete Shirodhara Kit / Manual

This is the traditional system for giving a shirodhara. Fully hands on, the flow of oil comes from the copper pot, onto the person's third eye, down the hair and vinyl strip, and into the warming pan, where the flow continues with the shirodhara therapist re-pouring the warmed oil back into the copper vessel. While this method requires skill and an ability to quiet one's own mind, it is the most energetically positive way to give a shirodhara treatment.

System includes:

  • Copper Shirodhara Stand
  • Copper Shirodhara pot w/control valve
  • 2 Copper Pouring Pitchers
  • Electric Solid Element Burner
  • Vinyl Strip for directing the oil back to the pitcher (not shown)
  • Shirodhara Manual with the history, benefits, and various methods of the treatment.
Want to know a little more?

To understand Ayurveda, one must first know that its foundation lies in the three forces: Creation, Change, and Destruction (sattva, rajas, and tamas in Sanskrit.) These three forces are called gunas. One guna cannot be without the others, everything that exists goes through these stages. When the gunas interact with one another, the result is the five elements: Ether (space), Air, Fire, Water, and Earth. Everything we see, touch, think, and experience has some combination of these elements within. Each element carries specific attributes that make it unique. In life, none of the five elements ever exists alone as each successive element is born from the one before it. Think of Ether as the vastness of the cosmos. This space is the home for all objects in the universe, namely energy. When sattva, rajas, and tamas take a hold of this universal energy in space, the result is air, the first state of matter. When air shifts through the three stages, it starts to move around, causing friction. This action produces heat and light and fire is born. As this pattern continues, fire liquefies matter and a new cycle starts as water comes forth. As the water goes through its stage of destruction, it evaporates, and earth solidifies from what is left behind. Then the process starts over again, and it is happening all around us all the time. 

Get ahead of the trend, and try it!

Ancient Healing with Ayurveda

Are you looking to intrigue your clients by adding a brand new service to your spa? One that enriches the mind and brings emotional balance? How about one that dates back nearly 5,000 years ago?!

Incorporate the ritualistic healing of Shirodhara into your spa, which stems from Ayurveda, an ancient natural healing process from India. Here at Pure Spa Direct, we offer a plethora of products from Ajara Ayurvedic Beauty to help you facilitate this treatment!

What exactly IS Shirodhara?

Shirodhara is a form of therapy that involves gently pouring various liquids over the forehead for relaxation purposes. Think of it as a massage for the mind! The term actually stems from the sanskirt words shiro, which means head and dhara, which means flow. Aside from completely relaxing your client, this therapeutic process is also said to rejuvenate the face, as well as relieve anxiety, depression, and insomnia through natural serotonin, dopamine, and melatonin release. It can also help synchronize alpha brain waves, enhancing blood circulation to the brain to improve mental clarity. Now that's my type of treatment!

And how is this all even possible?! Take a look below at our various Ayurveda products and see how they work:



To get started, check out the Copper Shirodhara Stand, which comes complete with everything you need to introduce your spa to this new treatment! This is the traditional system for giving a shirodhara. Fully hands on, the flow of oil comes from the copper pot, onto the person's third eye, down the hair and vinyl strip, and into the warming pan, where the flow continues with the shirodhara therapist re-pouring the warmed oil back into the copper vessel. While this method requires skill and an ability to quiet one's own mind, it is the most energetically positive way to give a shirodhara treatment.
This treatment requires oil, so to get started, this all natural Shirodhara Oil is your best bet. The natural conditioners from organic sesame and sunflower oil, as well as several herbs to calm the senses, make this oil perfect for a deeply soothing treatment.
To complete your treatment, you are definitely going to need a pair of these gloves! These Raw Silk Garshana Gloves are washable and reusable, and come in a handy carrying pouch. Perfect for your treatment!

Ayurveda And Your Business

Ayurveda is an ancient holistic healing system that originated in India. It has been steadily gaining popularity around the world in regards to addressing various issues within the body. You can read more about the history and theories behind it here.

Ayurvedic treatments are embraced in spas
as a non-medicinal means to promote deep relaxation.
Ayurvedic treatments are aimed to bring the body back into a state of balance. This includes the whole body, including the mind. It's no secret the physical effects stress can unleash within the body. Each Ayurvedic treatment is specially designed for each individual to garner the best possible results.

There are a range of different treatments you can offer within the Ayurvedic system including Ayurvedic massage and Shirodhara.

Shirodhara is a classic Ayurvedic treatment, thousands of years old, in which warm oil is poured in a continuous stream across the forehead. A vessel, suspended above the client's head, is used to pour the liquid in a pattern across the forehead and onto the scalp. Shirodhara boasts many wonderful therapeutic benefits, including enhanced blood circulation to the brain, improved memory, nourished hair and scalp, sounder sleep, and a calmer body and mind. Shirodhara is one of the most effective treatments for reducing stress and nervous tension. 

Shirodhara has been used in efforts to treat a variety of conditions including sinusitis, allergies, scalp conditions, neurological disorders, memory loss, insomnia, hearing impairment, and certain types of skin conditions like psoriasis. It is embraced for the use in spas as a non-medicinal means to promote deep relaxation. 

You can also create your own body wraps and masks using balancing powders

If you are looking for an exciting and exotic option to liven up your service menu, take some time to read about Ayurveda. It will not only benefit your clients' health but has unlimited profit potential for your business!
