Dhara is one of the major oil therapies in Ayurveda treatment. In this continual pouring of warm medicated oil or a herbal decoction over the body is done. Dhara is a kind of external application of medicated liquids. Popular Dhara treatments are Shirodhara (oil is poured only on the forehead), Sarvangadhara (oil is poured all over except on the head). Instead of oil medicated buttermilk is used in Takradhara therapy and if medicated milk is used then the process is called Ksheeradhara.
