Takradhara Ayurvedic Treatment

Dhara is a procedure in which medicated oil, Kashaya, milk or buttermilk is poured as a continuous stream through the thumb 12 angula height from the body part. It’s also known as Sarvangadhara. The same procedure done over the Shiras(frontal) area is Shirodhara, which is done from a height of 4 angula from the forehead using a specialized pot (Dharapatra). Ekanga Takradhra where Dhara is done over a part of the body is also practiced based on the need of treatment.
Takradhara is an Ayurvedic sudation therapy using medicated buttermilk to help the brain and mind relax, lack of sleep, reduce stress, and also for skin conditions like Psoriasis, Atopic Dermatitis, Neuropathies, etc.
