Nasya & Karna Purana Therapy

Nasya and karna purana ancient Ayurvedic therapies contribute to the evolving paradigm of Vedic bodywork and healing in the same spirit of inquiry, personal integrity and love of nature that gave rise to the original cranial concept in its embryonic state. It is an excellent method to add to your existing massage practice. Nasya and Karna Purana Therapy awakens the body’s natural healing processes, increases the body’s immune response and integrity of the central nervous system, and is effective for a wide range of medical problems associated with pain and illness. Nasya involves applying a few drops of eucalyptus based oil into the nostrils to help control sinus conditions, among many other illnesses. According to Ayurveda, the nose is the doorway to the brain and to consciousness. Nasya can help heal ear disorders, sinus problems, mental disorders, neck stiffness, migraine headache, dryness of the nose, TMJ, memory loss, convulsions, hoarseness, colds, anxiety, fear, insecurity and nervousness.

Students will also learn how to incorporate another ancient modality called Karna Purna, which involves flow a steady stream of warm, herbal oil on to a specific marma point at the top of the ear. The benefits not only amplify the craniosacral light touch techniques, but can help liquefy earwax, lubricate the ear canal, remove dryness, promotes the release of toxins and debris to exist the ear canal, help reduce most ear pain and alleviate ear infections, jet-lag, and assists in aligning the bones in the head. Cranial work in the Vedic realms portrays the early human embryo as one of the most potent symbols of creation if we consider the fact that we are microcosms of the macrocosm. This new, yet ancient wisdom is available to us now, at this moment of transition in the evolution of our consciousness. It is a symbol that is signaling our culture to make radical changes in its beliefs, in the direction of its lifestyle and in its relationship to Nature.
