Dhara means ‘pouring of medicinal liquid’ in the traditional system of Ayurveda. Dhara treatment is mostly given to the head but also to different parts of the body too. The name of Dhara varies with the kind of material (mostly oil) used for the Dhara Therapy. When dhara is applied to head it is called “Shirodhara” that involves gently pouring liquids over the forehead (the ‘third eye’). . The liquids used in shirodhara depend on what is being treated, but can include oil, milk, buttermilk, coconut water, or even plain water. Shirodhara has been used to treat a variety of conditions including eye diseases, sinusitis, allergic rhinitis, graying of hair, neurological disorders, memory loss, insomnia, hearing impairment, tinnitus, vertigo and certain types of skin diseases like psoriasis.
