Nasyam is a therapeutic treatment for the nose, throat, sinuses and head. The face, shoulders, and chest are massaged with specific herbal oil and the herbal extracts and herbal oils are measured exactly and instilled into the nostrils while inhaling. After this process, the area around the nose, chest, palms, and foot are massaged vigorously. 

This Ayurvedic therapy can provide a miraculous remedy for congestion. When it is combined with Abhyangam, it also calms the body, relieving it of stress and toxins. It also helps regulate our hormones. This extended therapy will cleanse, purify and strengthen the nasal passages allowing you to breathe fully and easily again. Nasyam treatment means putting nasal drops. 

While you might be already knowing about the usage of nasal drops to relieve nasal congestion, Ayurvedic nasya therapy is quite different from this usual practice. While putting the drops into nostrils remains the same, the purpose of this treatment varies in Ayurveda.While there are many types of Nasya treatments, there is one type which can be done on daily basis for the overall improvement of health and to prevent diseases.
