Targeted treatments for specific ailments cured in the most holistic manner
About Takradhara

Takradhara is a specially prescribed ayurvedic treatment that involves a full body massage with takra (herbalised buttermilk) poured on your forehead in a constant stream. This treatment and its physiological benefits are similar to the Shirodhara treatment. The word Takradhara consists of two words Takra and Dhara which means buttermilk and stream. 

The buttermilk used in Takradhara treatment is specially formulated by infusing 10 potent Ayurvedic herbs. Takradhara treatment has a balancing effect on the deepest recesses of our brains.  It stimulates the endocrine system, pineal and pituitary glands, purifies toxins, and enhances blood circulation in the brain. Buttermilk has great cooling properties which makes it the best choice to relax the mind and reduce mental stress. 

Takradhara treatment is often prescribed for people who are suffering from:

  • Skin disorders
  • Insomnia
  • Stress and nervous tension
  • Digestive issues  

Ayurveda suggests this Ayurvedic treatment, especially for psychosomatic disorders such as psoriasis. It is especially recommended for people with Pitta-specific disorders and migraine. 

The Takradhara ayurvedic treatment is of three types:

  1. Takra Shiro Dhara: This treatment is performed over the forehead. It is useful for migraines, fever, psoriasis, anxiety, etc. 

  2. Takra Sarvangha Dhara: This type of treatment is performed for the entire body. It is effective for stress, exhaustion, and psoriasis. 

  3. Takra Ekanga Dhara: This is performed on a specific portion of the body. For example, for a patient with leg psoriasis, the treatment is done only on the leg.
