Process & Benefits of Nasya Therapy- A Panchakarma Treatment

Nasya Therapy

Nasya is an Ayurvedic therapy which includes instillation of herbal oils, juices or powders through your nasal route. It works particularly on disorders of ear, nose, and throat. Nasya is one of the five Panchakarma therapies. It is particularly beneficial for diseases of parts above the base of the neck; nasal passage being the gateway of the head.

The process of Nasya can be classified under three headings,

  • Poorvakarma or pre purificatory measures

  • Pradhanakarma or main procedure of Nasya

  • This is the main step of Nasya which includes instillation of lukewarm medication in both the nostrils, alternately, with the use of a proper instrument like a dropper. The shoulder, sole, neck, ear, and palm are gently massaged following the administration of the drug.

  • Paschatkarma or post-therapeutic measures

  • In this process patients mouth is cleaned by providing lukewarm water to gargle and after that medicated smoke is given for inhalation.

Afterward, they evacuate the morbidity present or distributed in close by area. Hence it relieves the blockage of the channels and the diseases are cured efficiently. Medicated oils/juices/ powders stimulate the important centers of your brain to cure specific diseases. Nasya treatment does not cause any severe side effects when executed by a trained and experienced therapist.
