Shirodhara is a beautiful therapy which begins with a good massage of head, forehead and neck. The warm liquid (herbal oils, buttermilk, herbal milk, decoctions; again depending on body type and disease) is flowed in a continuous stream from anywhere between 30-50 minutes.

It is very beneficial in depression, insomnia (sleep problems), extreme mental and emotional stress and anxiety. This shirodhara also alleviates the derangement of the three doshas and improves the power of all sensory organs.

Coming back to my experience, shirodhara is my favourite therapy!
Apart from the conditions mentioned above, I’ve used it successfully in PCOS, menstrual irregularities, infertility, hormonal imbalances, menopause; women’s health being my area of

With a shirodhara flowing, the person heals themselves on multiple levels

  • Physical
  • Mental
  • Emotional
  • Spiritual

My theory is shirodhara works on the hypothalamic/ pituitary axis (for the uninitiated in human physiology, this axis is the main controlling centre for the most important chemicals secreted in our body—-the hormones); stimulating it and gently propelling it back to a state of balance. And that’s where serotonin and melatonin are secreted which play a significant role in depression and sleep inducement. Thus it works on the mental level.

It allows all thoughts to settle and lets us be in a place of peace and silence where we can listen to our innermost self. It gives us space to bring up the emotions bothering us in our daily lives and ways to deal with them. In the world of psychic energies sometimes an acknowledgement is more than enough for the healing to begin.

I’ve worked on psychics, yoga practitioners, reiki healers, spiritual healers, intuitive people and people who have been practicing meditations for a long time.

Shirodhara helps us to become more intuitive, helps in raising our energies and makes us vibrate at a higher frequency. It brings a quality change in the meditations and helps realize who we are.

So if you are a fellow traveller on the path of spirituality, I cordially invite you to the amazing experience called shirodhara.

Enjoyed very professional Ayurvedic session with Dr. Manjot. Its good to know about my body type and to get info on how to stay healthy. And loved the sauna in after my Ayurvedic session, who says you can't beat winter in Melbourne.


I thought I needed to treat myself with a visit here for a massage after a terrible 2020. It is an overall experience not just a massage, and I left feeling amazing, not just for my body but also for my mind, and it kept on giving when I came home had the best sleep I have had in at least 6 months . I have been before but had forgotten how amazing Manjot is, I highly recommend any of her services. 2021 I will be treating myself for regularly.:)


I can not speak highly enough of Manjot and my experiences at Essence Ayurveda. Since my very first visit in 2019 every season has been a beautiful and healing experience. I have learned so much about myself and released negative thoughts and habits I’ve had for years . I firmly believe that you find the people you need at the time you need them and for me Manjot was that person. Emotionally I was at one of the lowest points in my life and was stressed out to the point I’d had a tension headache for 2 months. My first treatment was Shirodhara and it was exactly what I needed . My headache went and I began a beautiful journey of healing body and soul . I would honestly say Manjot is the best Reiki practitioner I personally have every met . She is not only a beautiful human being but a talented and kind practitioner who always seem to know exactly what to say and what advice to give . If you want to give yourself a beautiful gift take yourself here for a treatment I guarantee you won’t regret it❤️


Manjot is a beautiful person inside and out experiencing her massages is not to be missed! She also has an incredible healing ability. Appreciate you immensly Manjot


Manjot is such a talented and compassionate healer - the Shirodhara treatments will transform you.


I had a session with Manjot and she made me feel calm, relaxed whilst I explored a past life experience. She is very wise and knowledgeable. Thank you so much. Highly recommended her.


I met Manjot about two years ago. Manjot is a master healer. I've been on the spiritual journey for a long time but once i started to see Manjot she has helped me immensely to resolve certain issues and we will continue to work together. Manjot has been indispensable to me. She is kind, loving, honest, real and sage beyond words. I recommend anyone who is interested in this service to give Manjot a chance, you will not regret it, every time I see her i have an amazing experience. Manjot is truly gifted and wants to guide us and help us, I consider her my spiritual mentor.


Reiki helped me to find Manjot and it has been a wonderful journey. She has a beautiful nature and a generous smile. I love Manjot and Essence Ayuveda.
