Winter Wellness: Fortifying Immunity with Nasya

As the Winter season approaches, the drop in temperature brings with it an increased susceptibility to colds, flu, and other respiratory infections and it becomes crucial to prioritise immune support and holistic wellness to maintain optimal health. Ayurveda offers valuable insights and practices to fortify the immune system. One of the most potent and effective tools for winter wellness is Nasya, an Ayurvedic practice involving the administration of herbal oil into the nasal passages. 

Nasya therapy is rooted in the belief that the nasal passages serve as a gateway to the brain and respiratory system, and are crucial pathways for delivering medicinal substances directly to these vital areas. Nasya works by lubricating the nasal passages, clearing congestion, and promoting respiratory health.  It is recommended for conditions such as chronic sinusitis, allergies, headaches and migraines, facial paralysis, insomnia and sleep disorders. 

We provide Nasya therapy at our Ayurveda New Zealand clinic. After a head, neck and face massage, herbal infused steam is applied to the sinus area to prepare the passages for receiving treatment. Afterwards Anu Taila nasal oil is applied through each nostril and massaged gently to distribute into the deeper parts of the sinuses. Our Sattva Botanicals™ product range includesa certified organic Anu Taila nasal oil available on our website which can be self-administered at home. 

One of our clients has written a heartwarming testimonial about her experience with Nasya at our clinic:

"Six months ago, I experienced the onset of facial paralysis because of damage to my facial nerve. It was the second time I'd been struck down with this horrible illness. I'd already exhausted Western treatments and by chance an Internet search showed that Ayurveda New Zealand could help me. I had nothing to lose and had my first consultation with Sarita. Her knowledge impressed me. But it was her warmth and genuineness that really struck me. She explained that Ayurveda wasn't only going to treat my face, the rest of me also needed some work. That's what Ayurveda does. It changes and improves you holistically. After three Nasya treatments, I've noticed a lot of improvements on my face. And not only that; Sarita has supported and encouraged me to change my lifestyle. She's genuinely interested in getting me better. I've never felt healthier, and my stress and anxiety levels are now better managed with exercise, yoga, and meditation.

My Nasya treatments are with the lovely Natasha. Her care and attention to detail are amazing, and she really does know where my pain points are. My face and body have been yearning for this treatment, and Ayurveda New Zealand is a Godsend. Thank you, Sarita and Natasha."
