Role of Maastishkya in Netra Rogas

Sandhya Ganesh k, Naveen BS

Abstract


Shiras or the head is considered as the uttamangai.e a very vital part which shelters all the sense organs and
also the seat of prana or life. Ayurveda advocates various therapeutic procedures in name of maastishkya
in order to protect the head and sense organs. Maastishkya is a mode of oleating/nourishing the head in
order to obtain the above aims. These therapeutic modalities, if practiced regularly, improve and sustain
the sense organs, facilitate smooth facial skin, improve the strength of the skull, promote hair growth
and avoid the incidence of headache.
