Thakradhara Treatment

Thakradhara Ayurvedic Treatment

Thakradhara is an Ayurvedic procedure that involves pouring medicated buttermilk over a patient’s forehead. This is done because buttermilk has cooling properties that help relax the body and mind. Thakradhara is useful for treating insomnia, hypertension, and psoriasis.

How is thakradhara done?

Once the patient’s body is prepped with oil, they are made to lie down on their back. Then, medicated buttermilk is poured over the patient’s head from a dhara vessel that is hung six to eight inches above their forehead. The buttermilk flows through a hole at the bottom of the vessel. A headband is tied on the patient’s forehead, above the eyebrows to prevent the buttermilk from getting into their eyes; it also helps direct the flow. This treatment is great for stress management, skin diseases, detoxification, and relaxation.

There are three main stages in the thakradhara process:

The pre-treatment procedures, which include:

  • Patient examination
  • Disease examination
  • Patient counselling
  • Material collection
  • Preparing medicine and the patient

The treatment procedure and Post-treatment procedure

Duration of the Thakradhara treatment:

The thakradhara process is done for 45 to 60 minutes, in one sitting. It depends on the nature and severity of your condition. The treatment is done over seven to fourteen days, as per your physician’s recommendation. During the treatment period, the medical professionals will keep checking your blood pressure and other vitals; this helps them decide whether to stretch your treatment or not. The treatment is mostly done in the morning, anywhere between 6 to 10 AM.
