Netra Basti therapy was designed by the ancients to restore relaxation and focus to the eyes. Many also experience a sense of peace and expansion to the spirit during and after the therapy.
First, the eyes are cleaned to remove make-up or other impurities, preparing them for treatment. Dough dams are secured around the eyes, then warm, medicated ghee is slowly poured into the dams to flood the eye area, lubricating the eyes and encouraging a deep releasing of the muscles in and around the “windows of the soul.”

Our culture is eye-dominant. We have become a screen society…whether it is the computer, the cellphone, or the television. Many people even read books on the computer these days and this change of society has bombarded our eyes with way too much stimulation and EMF’s.
The eyes are over strained and never get a chance to not be working and even in sleep, the eyes move around more than before because these sense organs have forgotten how to shut down and relax. Netra Tarpana is beneficial for keeping the eyes strong, to reduce diseases of the eyes and to make all other senses work better.
