Pushpa is a healing treatment based on the use of flowers, herbs and plants.

Pushpa, which means “flower” in Sanskrit, was developed and presented in the Ayurvedic canonical treatise Karakasamhita by the author Kashipati. This text dates from approximately the 11th to 9th centuries BC and is one of the first written sources describing Ayurvedic medicine and procedures.

It is carried out using specially prepared oils and ointments containing strong medicinal properties of plants .

The Pushpa procedure includes:

  • head and face massage using oils and ointments.  One of the main components of Pushpa is essential oils obtained from natural plants. These oils are known for their ability to penetrate into the deep layers of the skin and have a healing effect on the body.
  • After the oil massage, wrapping and gentle steam treatment using herbal mixtures are also carried out.

Pushpa has a number of beneficial properties and can have a beneficial effect on the body:

  • It promotes relaxation, relieves tension and stress, improves blood circulation and metabolic processes in the body.
  • In addition, regular Pushpa treatment helps strengthen the immune system, improve sleep and eliminate various health problems related to mental and physical condition.

Clinical researches

Research in the field of Ayurvedic medicine and Pushpa procedure has been carried out both in India and in other countries. One study published in the Journal of Ethnopharmacology confirmed the effectiveness of Pushpa in eliminating stress and anxiety in patients with anxiety and depressive disorders.

As mentioned in ancient texts, Pushpa was used not only for treatment, but also to correct the energy balance of the body. One such reference can be found in the Sushrutasamhita, one of the most important treatises on Ayurveda, dating back to around the 6th century BC.
