    Learn Ayurvedic and Tibetan Protocols that make for a unique, unheard-of "Psycho-Spiritual" Massage experience

    Imagine if you could:

    • Offer Ayurveda’s most sought-after treatment in the Spa and Beauty Industry
    • 'Defrag' the mind, create more space for peace and creativity
    • Reduce stress caused by nervousness, anxiety, depression, insomnia, fatigue
    • Balance all the subtle energies and the doshas- Vata, Pitta and Kapha- of the body
    • Help body and mind discover the healing it needs by systematic mental purification
    • Achieve a peaceful and profoundly deep state of relaxed awareness
    • Synchronize and slow brain waves, making them more coherent
    • Balance Vata dosha in the mind

    Incredible, wouldn't that be? Ayurveda gifts you all these benefits in the form of one procedure- the divine treatment of Shirodhara.

    What is Shirodhara?
    In Sanskrit, the ancient vibrational language that is used in all the root texts of Ayurveda, SHIRO refers to the head and DHARA refers to the idea of a fine continuous stream.
    So a warm liquid flows from a vessel onto the forehead of the recipient, through their hair and into a catching bowl on the floor.

    Of all the body treatments offered in Ayurveda, both, the Spa and Beauty industries as well as the general public is especially fascinated by Shirodhara.

    Shirodhara is a very profound treatment. If you are familiar with chakras, it is, in fact, a chakra treatment, which means it has a powerful impact on our mind and emotions.

    Tibetan physicians classify Shirodhara as a “psycho-spiritual” massage.

    Serious meditators and yogis use shirodhara to prepare their minds for entering into retreats. Shirodhara is for everyone, though. In modern, techy language for the average spa goer, we say that Shirodhara “defrags” the mind. It sorts out all the boxes, puts them in a better order and creates more space for creativity and peace.

    Tibetan Shirodhara goes a step further and combines four Tibetan massage protocols (including Shirodhara) in a seamless rhythm, with each step being a stand-alone process which, when combined, yields amazing results. Designed to help balance all the subtle energies of the body or doshas as they are known in Ayurveda – Vata, Pitta and Kapha, the process crescendos into the actual Shirodhara technique.

    From their experience and training in the bodywork methods of Tibetan Ayurveda, Melanie and Robert have formulated this profoundly relaxing, yet mind-clearing and awakening process that has become a standard in many spas and with individual therapists throughout the world. Melanie and Robert have offered this specific protocol for 20 years in their practice and have seen many wonderful results. And now, they're sharing it with you - so you can share your newfound skills and knowledge with the world.

    Especially beneficial for licensed massage therapists, estheticians, spa owners, and any health care professionals, this course will teach you how to practice this unique Tibetan Shirodhara protocol with your clients.

    The four-part treatment sequence, making this therapeutic treatment so special, includes:

    1. Psychological Stress Sequence: Involves the gentle anointing of twelve marmas (vital energy points) with essential oils to calm the mind and help relax

    2. Abdominal Massage: Redirects Vata dosha back to its seat in the colon

    3. Tibetan Eye Treatment: Contrary to what the name indicates, the primary place of action in this treatment is the feet – yet surprisingly, the eyes feel amazingly bright, clear, and well hydrated afterward, helping direct even more Vata energy from the head

    4. Shirodhara: A continuous fine stream of warm oil is poured over the forehead for 10-20 minutes. The touch of the oil opens marmas on the head that allows the body to sink into a deep relaxation

    Melanie and Robert will teach you each of these steps in detail in their newest course: Tibetan Shirodhara.

    Here’s a list of benefits that you gain from this program:

Tibetan Shirodhara, like all our treatments, is a modular sequence, with each portion being a stand-alone process which, when combined, yields amazing results. "
