Shirodhara Divine Healing & Pichu

Linda Bretherton MA. Ayur Consultant. Warrington. WA4 1JQ


Shirodhara reminds us of our inner essence, that cannot be destroyed by anything.

Traditionally part of the preparation for an Ayurvedic internal cleansing process called PanchaKarma, Shirodhara is an ancient therapeutic treatment used to calm, soothe, transport and balance the nervous system.

Shirodhara is an amazing, unique body therapy from the ancient natural medical system Ayurveda.

Shirodhara has a profound impact on the nervous system, the treatment directly and immediately calms, relaxes and has a profound cleansing effect on the mind and nervous system

There is no other therapy that has a similar impact on the nervous system.

The gentle pressure and soothing warmth of the oil allow the body, mind and nervous system to experience a deep state of rest, similar to meditation.

Steady Flowing Oil

A steady stream of oil is eased onto the third eye, over the forehead, down the scalp and through the hair. This quiets the mind and encourages the subtle energies of the body to flow in an upward direction.

' That which exists through itself is called the Way......Essence and life cannot be seen....They are contained in the life of heaven. The light of heaven cannot be seen. It is contained in the two eyes .... The heavenly heart lies between sun and moon .... between the eyes'

The Secret of the Golden Flower

Shirodhara also called the 'spiritual eye ' and stimulates Shiva energy and encourages the beauty of Shakti that creates a blissful place in mind and body.

This divine treatment involves the slow pouring of warm herbal oils onto the Anja the chakra known as the brow or third eye. Ancient teachings remind us that the Anja chakra is the gateway to inner realms and places of higher wisdom.

Some of the Benefits

There are many benefits including relieving a range of disorders for each Dosha.

  • Vata - Fatigue, mental exhaustion, insomnia, headaches, dryness and constipation.
  • Pitta - Hot headaches, inflammation, conjunctivitis, sweating, vision, heat, anger.
  • Kapha - Excessive sleep, heaviness, indigestion, obesity, weak digestion, lethargy.

Mother Maya tells us that this treatment has the added effect of awakening the third eye, invigorating the body and mind and stimulating cognitive memories.


I specialise in this treatment followed by Pichu that offers calming, clearing and grounding after care to connect with Mother Earth and provide a place of earthly bliss.
Pichu is a Snehana process which follows your Shirodhara treatment and helps to balance and ground the Doshas and bring calmness to the body and mind. Pichu adds to the benefits of Shirodhara, relieving eye pain, soothing the scalp, cooling inflammation.

Finish with Far Deep Infra Red 

'Sitting in the Infra Red Cabin feels like being on a beach with the sun shining penetrating my body'

Far Infrared Treatment stimulates cellular metabolism which increases the body’s regenerative ability and helps restore the proper function of the nervous system. When any tissue in the body is exposed to FIR the body’s healing processes are activated.

Studies suggest Far Infrared Energy helps to maintain general health and prevent disease.

Far Infrared Rays are capable of penetrating deep into the human body, gently expanding capillaries and stimulating blood circulation.

Far Infrared Rays stimulate the production of cell tissue and rapidly promotes the regeneration of skin and blood tissue.

Far Infrared Rays Are Waves of Energy

Far Infrared Rays are waves of energy that are healing and rejuvenating. These invisible rays possess great penetrative power and are able to reach deep into the cells, inner tissues, glands, nerves and organs beneath the skin.

Far Infrared Rays gently elevate the body’s temperature and activate major bodily functions.

The experience in the clinic lasts up to 2 hrs.


You will be required to fill in a questionnaire to help me to determine your Dosha and state of mind. I purchase and prepare oils and herbs specific to suit you, this must be done at least 24 hrs prior to your appointment for herbs to infuse, in the oils. Please bring a hat or scarf to wear for when you leave the clinic, this will help to protect you from chills and external influences. Also bring along a hand towel to have on your shoulders as the oil can drip after your treatment onto your clothes.
