Is a form of Ayurveda medicine that involves gently pouring liquids over the forehead (the 'third eye'). It was developed by vaidyas (practitioners of Ayurveda) in Kerala, India for use in sukhachikitsa (restorative therapy) and can be one of the steps involved in Panchakarma. The name comes from the Sanskrit words Shiras 'head' and dhara 'flow'. 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, Meniere’s disease and certain types of skin diseases like psoriasis. It is also used non-medicinally at spas for its relaxing properties.

This therapy is done after Abhyanga (Ayurvedic Massage) or during Panchakarma and consists of scrubbing warm boluses (prepared with herbs, milk, rice and other grains) over your entire body using specific strokes. It improves blood circulation and muscle tone, strengthens digestion and restores vigor to all your bodily tissues. Pinda Sweda is beneficial in degenerative conditions and can help the body rebuild muscular tissues.

Done in a series, it is traditionally used for many neurological and neuromuscular disorders, including MS, Parkinson's, as well as many serious imbalances, and to promote vitality and longevity. Pinda Sweda is recommended at least once a year to preserve health and delay aging.
