Akshi Tarpana

Akshi Tarpana is an Ayurvedic procedure that helps to nourish and protect the eyes from various disorders. It involves gently pouring a stream of medicated ghee into each eye for a set amount of time, usually about five minutes. The therapist may also perform gentle massage around the eye area to stimulate circulation. Afterward, a cotton pad is placed over the eyes for some additional soothing and protective effects.

Akshi Tarpana can be helpful in treating many common eye problems such as dryness, burning, itching, inflammation, redness, soreness, and fatigue due to hours spent looking at computer screens or television sets. It can also help with vision problems caused by aging or long-term exposure to dust and dirt particles often found in the environment.

How does Akshi Tarpana help in eye diseases?

Akshi Tarpana helps to nourish and protect the eyes from various diseases. It improves circulation and relieves strain, dryness and other discomforts associated with long-term exposure to screens or dust particles. The medicated ghee used in the process also provides essential antioxidants. Therefore it helps to reduce inflammation and free radical damage that often links to eye disorders. Furthermore, this therapy helps to reduce symptoms of glaucoma by improving drainage within the eye. Lastly, it creates a protective film over the surface of the eye that may shield against foreign particles entering the eye and causing injury or infection

The procedure helps improve the eyes’ natural lubrication. This together provides strength and nourishment to the delicate eye area. It may also help with mental clarity and concentration, as well as reduce stress levels in those who suffer from insomnia or anxiety. In addition, it can be part of a program for restoring balance in any dosha type (or combination).

The patient will lie on their back with their eyes closed while the therapist gently pours a stream of warm medicated ghee onto each eye, using a special spoon called an Anjana Yantra. The flow should be steady and consistent for a set amount of time (usually 5 minutes).

Once enough Medicated Ghee is there in the pool, the patient needs to blink their eyes, gently.

This continues for almost 20-25 minutes.

To finish, they are given a cotton pad to place over their eyes for approximately 20-25 minutes and left to rest quietly until complete. This helps absorb any remaining ghee and promotes a cooling, calming effect.
