Everything you need to begin practicing shirodhara. Our beautiful copper stand has brass accents and was designed by Ajara's Founder, Nicole Hinterstocker who has been practicing the art of shirodhara since 1999, and training new practitioners since 2000. It is made by Local craftsmen and craftswomen at Ajara's Home Location in Cedar Grove Wisconsin. Our copper Shirodhara pot is hand spun in India and finished here in our workshop with a brass valve that is forged in the Midwest.
- Hands-On System:
This is the traditional system for giving a shirodhara. Fully hands on, the flow of oil comes from the copper vessel, onto the forehead (an area traditionally called the third eye), down the hair and vinyl strip, and into the warming pan, where the flow continues with the shirodhara therapist re-pouring the warmed oil back into the copper vessel. While this method requires skill and an ability to quiet one's own mind, it is the most energetically positive way to give a shirodhara treatment.

- Copper Shirodhara Stand
