Sensory Function Treatments

Nasya Therapy (Nasal Clearing)

The face is steamed and massaged before medicated oils are administered into the nasal passage. This is followed by a further face massage focusing on the sinus area.  The olfactory nerve are the only nerves in the body to be exposed to the air and therefore the application and massage of oils in this area can have a dramatic effect on clearing the sinuses.  This treatment can be very effective for relieving nasal congestion, sinusitis and associated headaches and hayfever.  Hayfever suffers are recommended to book a course of four weekly treatments in the Spring before the hayfever season starts.  All Nasya Therapy treatments include a bottle of Anu Oil, an Ayurvedic herbal oil which can be used daily at home.

Duration 40 minutes
Price: £40

Course of four treatments: £150

Karana Purana (Ear Treatment)

This treatment begins with a facial massage to help open up the channels around the ear, nose and throat area.  Warm oil is then administered into the ear, Marma Points are massaged and the ear drained. This is done three times before repeating on the other ear.  The treatment finishes with further massage to ear, nose and throat area.  Karana Purana can be beneficial for ear-related pain, congestion, tinnitus and mild hearing loss.

Duration: 45 minutes
Price: £45

Ashitarpana (Eye Treatment)

A dough Basti (see “Basti Treatments”) is applied to the eye and filled with warm melted ghee while the eye is closed.  Once the well has been filled, blinking is encouraged to allow the ghee to nourish the eye tissue.  The warm ghee is periodically replaced as it cools and remains in the eye for 10-15 minutes. The procedure is repeated on the other eye.  Tratek meditation (gazing at a candle flame) is encouraged for five minutes following treatment to help clear the eye.  This is a surprisingly relaxing treatment which helps with many eye issues including stressed, tired, dry and burning eyes.

Duration: 45 minutes
Price: £45
