At Life without Pain we offer a number of treatments that are beneficial and stimulating to the five senses, those of touch, sight, smell, taste and sound. Some of our therapies that focus on touch can be found elsewhere on our website. The session will start out with an oil massage to the upper back, neck, chest, face and head stimulating the sense of touch. A specific oil will be applied to the chest and neck to loosen any mucus. You will be tented and steam will be generated to open the pores, allow the oil to steep in and move stagnicity and mucus. For the remaining senses we will focus on therapies that address sight, smell, taste and sound. Package price of $125
What is Netra?
Netra therapy is a cleansing process for the eyes. The process involves retaining fluid outside the eye for a short period of time to draw stagnant debris from the tear duct and lubricate the connective tissues of the eye.
How can a Netra help you?
Netras have traditionally been used to treat the following ailments:
- Pain around or behind the eye
- Ulcerated cornea
- Lesions or eye inflammation
- Loss or vision or blurred vision
- Improper secretion of the eyes
1) Warm ghee will be applied to the eye by two glass cups. Eye exercises will be performed to help collect debris in the eye, floaters and lubricate the connective tissues around the eye.
2) After completion of three rounds of exercises the liquid ghee should start to become cloudy. This is an indication that you have collected debris and floaters.
3) After removal of the eye cups we will use smoke of turmeric to make the eye tear to remove and ghee that was left in the eyes. It is not painful.
4) While laying down rose water drops are applied to each eye to cool them and remove any residual ghee that is left. An eye pillow is then applied to keep from stimulating the eyes.
5) Upon leaving, clients can expect to feel clean and relaxed with a fluidity and crispness in their vision.
