Dhara with medicated milk is called Ksheeradhara. Cows milk is preferred, but sometimes buffalos milk is used. Decoctions of various herbs are added to the milk. Ksheeradhara may be either for the head alone – Shirodhara, or for the whole body except the head – Sarvangadhara. A Sarvanga Ksheeradhara is usually prescribed for diseases caused by disorders of the Pitta.  As a first step, a suitable medicinal oil is applied on the head. At least three attendants are needed, two to pour the fluid and another to replenish the vessels. The treatment is conducted while the patient goes through the standard seven positions. A nozzled pitcher known is Kindi is ideal for pouring the milk.
