A Must-Try Massage For Insomniacs
By Sarah Betances, Massage Therapist |
Anxious? Can't sleep? You may want to look into an Ayurvedic stress-relieving massage called Shirodhara.
The treatment's name comes from Sanskrit words that mean head and flow, and it consists of the continual pouring of warm dosha oil in a long, continuous stream onto your forehead (where your “third eye” is said to be). Developed in India, Shirodhara also incorporates light touch massage and energy balancing techniques. Warm stones can be added to ground your body.
Shirodhara is a lesser-known massage therapy and may not be available everywhere; but find a therapist that can perform this soothing treatment and you will leave sure there is a higher power.
