The Process: The process of Nasyam or the Nasya Karma is a therapeutic treatment that relieves and re-energizes the body parts above the base of the neck. To be precise the Ear Throat and Nose. During the process medicated oils and powders are instilled into the nostrils as the recipient inhales them. Once instilled the chest, palms, feet and the area around the nose are massaged for the ingestion to take effect. This treatment is one of the Panchkarma therapies and is generally administered in three stages:
The process requires a specially medicated oil to be massaged by therapists in specific strokes around circulatory channels of the body. The synchronized strokes by two masseurs relax and refresh the body. The massage stimulates blood circulation and promotes quick removal of metabolic wastes and harmful toxins thereby providing relief from anxiety, fatigue, backaches etc.
Duration: The Nasyam therapy is given for a period of 14 days or two weeks.
Nose is the gateway to the head and Nasyam provides therapeutic benefits by administering medication directly to the most vital area of the human body.
