Ksheera dhara is a relaxing treatment similar to Shirodhara but instead of herbal oil, herbal milk infused with special herbs such as cleansing turmeric powder and fragrant sandalwood powder, is continuously poured over the forehead or all over the body. The gentle milk bath is followed by a relaxing massage. If Ksheeradhara done for head alone is called Shirodhara, if for the whole body except the head, it is called as Sarvangadhara. At the first step, medicinal oil is applied on the head then warm medicated milk is poured from a certain height in a rhythmic manner to the specific area and is rubbed into the body to treat the ailment. The therapy is practiced for a period of 7 to 21 days.
