Experiencing Shirodhara at Burke Williams Spa


Ayurvedic Medicine is an ancient treatment that has been practiced in India for over 5,000 years. This method of medicine incorporates traditional herbal blends and aromatherapeutic essential oils. I recently experienced the Burke Williams new Ayurvedic treatment Shirodhara.


The shirodhara treatment was unlike anything i’ve ever experienced. I left the spa feeling at peace. It all starts with the process of choosing the oil. You choose an herbal massage oil specific to your dosha. So what is a dosha? Your dosha is the biological energies of your body and mind. They are derived from the five elements. Everyone’s dosha is different. During this treatment you smell each oil. The oil you are most drawn to exposes your dosha. I selected Pitta.


Pittas reflect elements of fire and water. Pittas tend to have issues with stress. They need to practice self care/love a lot to remain balanced.

After selecting your oil you receive your massage. The treatment ends with a stream of oil poured down your third eye. This leaves you with a feeling of happiness and clarity. I can most definitely say this works wonders because after my treatment I had to catch a flight. Surprisingly during this process I stayed in my euphoric state. I can truly say that the process of Shirodhara was 80 minutes of pure bliss! Even days after the treatment I remained in this state of bliss.
