Takra dhara

Takra means butter milk and dhara means pouring. Takra dhara is a specialized Ayurvedic treatment method in which medicated buttermilk is continuously poured over the centre of forehead in a specialized manner. The patient will lie down in the wood basin after applying the head and body with specially made medicated oils.  The patient should keep his head in a slightly elevated position by using a pillow. Eyes are then closed with cotton and long strip of cloth is bound round the head. A therapist supervises the movement of Dharaapatra (vessel containing butter milk) and flow of the medicine.
