About the treatment

Akshi tarpana is a gentle yet nourishing eye rejuvenation therapy unique to ayurveda. For this therapy a dough dam is created to hold a pool of warm medicated ghee for a set length of time allowing its warmth and pressure to deeply penetrate the delicate eye and eye socket area. The essential antioxidants of the ghee cleanse, soothe and strengthen the tissues, reducing inflammation and free radical damage often associated with eye disorders.

Our eyes allow us to make sense of the world. Not just from the information and shape, colour, light and depth we witness but also the focus, vision and potential it offers emotionally and spiritually. Our eyes are considered the ‘gateway to our soul.’ They are under constant performance pressure, strain and stress in order for us to see the world in all its colourful manifestations and so healthy vision is very rarely underestimated.
