- The recipient is first made ready for the therapy by making him/her lie on his/her back on the massage table.
- A rolled towel is placed on the forehead just above to the eyebrows to prevent the flow of oil into the eyes.
- Gentle oil massage is given by the therapist on the recipient’s head (or whole body if necessary)
- A vessel with a hole on the center of its base is hung about four fingers above of the patient’s head.
- A cotton plug is place in the hole which will later be useful for maintaining the control of flow of oil.

Benefits of Shirodhara in Nepal Yoga Home
The classical purpose for designing the therapy of Shirodhara was to pacify the aggravated Vata in the head region. Aggravated Vata in head region is responsible for pain, anxiety and sleeplessness. So classically Shirodhara was being therapeutically used for headache, insomnia and anxiety.
Recent scientific studies have hypothesized the working of Shirodhara based on mechanical stress waves. The continuous oil dripping on the forehead at a constant rate generates mechanical stress waves. These waves stimulate the touch and heat receptors which leads to neurological signaling for relaxation.
The general results that can be observed from Shirodhara include reduced heart rate, blood pressure, respiratory rate and anxiolytic effect. All of these suggest that Shirodhara slows down the sympathetic tone.
