Shirodhara (oil therapy)

Shirodhara (oil therapy)

An oil-filled pot with a small hole in the base is suspended above the patient’s forehead, who is lying flat face up on a wooden bed, a thin flow of warm medicated oil is directed onto a spot between the eye-brows. The oil is gently stroked down the hair for 30-40 minutes and permeates the skin. Sometimes the therapist will massage it into the scalp for extra potency. It is highly effective in the treatment of insomnia, migraine, epilepsy and amnesia.

What They Say

Hope you are well; you are my first email as Justin and I am extremely grateful for your attention with our booking. The Peninsula staff went way beyond for my birthday, thanks to you. It was the best trip ever we were blown away by the hotel and its attention to detail.
