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!
Is your spa completely brand new to this treatment? Educate your workers on this ancient healing method with this informative Ayurvedic Spa Treatments DVD. It is great for teaching your technicians on how to evaluate their clients and perform a variety of Ayurvedic treatments!

Head and Scalp Massages - The Stand-Alone Service Your Clients NEED You To Add

One of the best parts of receiving a hair cut or color is the shampoo experience. All too often, though, even if there is a generously long head massage, it still never feels like enough.
