Takradhara (or Ksheeradhara) - Ayurvedic Treatment
Takradhara is an Ayurvedic sudation therapy using medicated buttermilk to help the brain and mind relax, and reduce stress. In Takradhara, a medicated buttermilk, similar to Sirodhara, is poured continuously onto the forehead or over the entire body. (In Ksheeradhara herbal organic milk is used instead of buttermilk). The use of buttermilk, specially formulated and infused with a selection of potent Ayurvedic herbs, is known for its ability to eliminate toxins, stimulate the endocrine system and enhance blood circulation to the brain.
Buttermilk is known for its tremendous cooling properties, which makes it an ideal liquid to help relax the mind and reduce mental stress. This treatment is of great benefit to those suffering from Insomnia, Stress and nervous tension, Skin disorders and Digestive issues, all of which can be connected to mental stress and agitation, and diminish when the body and mind are put at ease.
