SATVA AVAJAYA CHIKITSA (Non Pharmacological Psychotherapy)
Sattvavajaya is the psychotherapeutic system of Ayurveda or the non- pharmacological approach of Ayurveda to improve one’s mental and emotional status. Charaka, who had visualized the role that psychological factors play in diseases, recommends Sattvavajaya as an objective approach for modification of mental functioning based on ayurvedic principles. As a psychotherapeutic system Sattvavajaya needs help, guidance and interference of an expert vaidya ( Ayurvedic practitioner) and uses intervention tools like ashvasana (assurance), samsucana (suggestion), pratyayayana (persuation), nirdesana (guidance), prasiksana (education and training), parimarjana (modification), sammohana (hypnosis), visamvedana (desensitization), rechana (catharsis) and samtrapti (satisfaction).
