What should I wear?
Please wear something comfortable, such as yoga-style clothing. Since we encourage you to let the Ayurvedic oils soak into your skin for a few hours after the treatment, don’t wear your favorite clothing that could be stained by the oil. For the shiro dhara oil treatments we also recommend bringing an old towel to throw over your car seat for the drive home.
How Long Does A Typical Steam Session Last?
In general, the recommended steam bath is between 15-20 minutes. Longer sessions, up to 30 minutes, may be appropriate to those in certain programs.
Will I need to shower after an oil treatment?
We encourage you to let the Ayurvedic oils soak into your skin for as long as you are comfortable with. The benefits of your dosha specific oils keep giving the longer they are allowed to soak in. Try leaving them on for the night to allow maximum saturation. You’ll find that you wake up with deliciously soft, supple and vibrant skin and hair. However, if you need to, you can shower at any time after your treatment and still receive the benefits of shiro dhara… but hey, when else can you get messy and just revel in the health of it?
