A Special Gift from Geraldine to Everyone!

This is our new traditionally made wooden and brass shirodhara from India. It made its way here from trucks, a ship and more trucks!

Shirodhara is an Ayurvedic bodywork treatment that involves a carefully selected herbalized oil that is then warmed, placed in a brass pot and continuously poured on the third eye in a swinging motion. Among its benefits are regulating the nervous system, calming anxiety, resolving insomnia and reaching deep states of meditation.

At Kreem Shakti we give our deepest gratitude to one of our Rogis: Geraldine! Geraldine graciously funded the purchase of this special equipment so that everyone could receive its benefits! Thank you Geraldine for being with us from the beginning and being a pivotal part of Kreem Shakti’s growth and development!
