Ayurvedic Eye Therapy: In ayurveda, “netra” means eyes and “tarpana” means rehydration. All day we use our eyes to absorb the visual stimuli around us. The increase of time spent behind computers and electronics nowadays creates an added strain that results in acute pain and tension. The eyes are linked to pitta (fire element). Imbalances with pitta can result in eye problems.
During this treatment, our ayurvedic practitioner will create a dough ring around the eyes. Medicated ghee is gently poured within this structure to submerge the eyes. This releases tension not only in the eyes but also the face. In addition dryness, inflammation, eye twitching, and other eye disorders are alleviated.
About Ayurveda: Ayurveda is a Sanskrit word meaning “the science of life and longevity”. It is the oldest system of health discipline in the world, first described in India about 5,000 years ago. It is an ancient wisdom of health and healing that emphasizes prevention. Ayurveda offers methods of nutrition, bodywork and energy through a holistic approach in the true sense of the word. It is the art of daily living in harmony with the laws of nature, a delicate balance between mind, body and consciousness that can only be achieved through awareness.
