This is an ancient oil therapy from Ayurveda. Ayurveda is a time-proven, evidence-based holistic medical system of self-healing. This is potentially one of the most "spiritually awakening" therapies on the planet and it is one of Karyn's most favorite therapies to give to her clients. It raises consciousness, bliss, peace, removes stress and so much more. Even the practitioner receives the benefits when they GIVE the treatment! The treatment will be demonstrated using oils, however students will practice this therapy using water.
Anyone can come. You don't have to be a healer or massage therapist. All students will give and receive the therapy as well as be presented with a demonstration of how this therapy is given properly. This particular shirodhara therapy is very unique because it incorporates heated and chilled sea stones to help harmonize and ground the clients during this very uplifting therapy. It helps pacify the "internal wind" we all carry around from stress. Karyn also uses stones in the oil to help regulate the temperature of the oil, as well as infuse the prana from the ocean that is within the matrix of each stone. My Facebook friends get 10% off the tuition! Friend me on FB under Karyn Chabot. Please prepare to have some fun!

“One who applies oil on his head regularly does not suffer from headache, baldness, graying of hair, nor does his hair fall. Strength of his head and forehead is especially enhanced; his hair becomes black, long and deep-rooted; his sense organs work properly; the skin of his face becomes brightened; applying oil on the head produces sound sleep and happiness.”
Ayurvedic physician Charaka, in the first text on Ayurveda, written over 2,000 years ago.
