Nasyam is an Ayurvedic therapy that involves nasal administration of therapeutic substances. Here are the key details about Nasyam:
Procedure: During Nasyam, a few drops of a plant-based therapeutic oil or herb extract are gently instilled into the nasal cavities. The therapist administers the drops using a specific technique to ensure proper distribution of the substance within the nasal passages.
Duration: Nasyam treatment typically lasts for about 15 minutes. The duration may vary depending on the individual’s needs and the recommendation of the Ayurvedic practitioner.
Benefits: Nasyam has multiple benefits for the head and respiratory system. It helps to cleanse the nasal passages, remove congestion, and stimulate the airways. The treatment also supports the elimination of excess doshas (energetic principles) from the head region, enhancing brain function. Nasyam invigorates blood circulation, promotes mental clarity, and stimulates cognitive functions. It is believed to have a positive impact on conditions such as hay fever, allergic respiratory conditions, tinnitus, headaches, paralysis, psychological conditions, memory difficulties, poor concentration, and certain skin conditions.
Therapist: Nasyam is typically performed by a trained Ayurvedic therapist who has expertise in the technique and administration of nasal treatments. The therapist ensures the proper application of the therapeutic substances and monitors the process for the patient’s comfort and safety.
