Dinacharya
A gateway to the world, our senses connect to the mind and the consciousness, completing the circle of perception. This program gives you an experience of the physical cleansing process in the dinacharya or daily routine program, wherein each of your senses is carefully looked after. The perception of the sense of smell, taste, form, touch and sound is dependent on the proper functioning of the nose, the tongue, the eyes, the skin and the ears. Using oils/ herbs based on the physician’s recommendation, the therapist will proceed to gently work with each of your senses using the following treatments: Anjana: The gentle application of a medicated liniment to the inner skin of your lower eyelids. This treatment removes impurities, accentuates the natural beauty of your eyes and improves eyesight, when practiced regularly. Nasya: Two drops of medicated oil are instilled in each nostril, which is then inhaled deeply. This enables removal of phlegm from the respiratory channels thus permitting easy breathing and better perception of the sense of smell. Gandusha: A medicated therapy that gently improves oral hygiene by holding natural fluids like milk, honey, oil, etc. ( as recommended by the physician) for 3-8 minutes in the mouth. This treatment will strengthen your teeth and gums and more importantly, improve sensitivity of your taste-buds and freshness in your mouth. Dhumapana: A therapy that requires inhaling medicated fumes through each nostril to experience an enhanced sense of smell. It removes excess phlegm and also opens up the sinuses. Karnapoorana: A few drops of medicated oils are instilled into each ear canal to experience more clarity in your sense of hearing. Also prevents build-up of earwax with this medicated oil.
