A 55 year-old male subject presented with history of left sided facial weakness, vak-aspashatata (difficulty in speaking), jivha jadatav (heaviness of tongue), vamatah mukha vakrata (left sided deviation) etc. He was given Vata-Kapha shamak medicine internally. Along with this medication the karmas explain in the chikitsa shutra of Ardita was given like Abhyaga, swedan, nasya, moordhani tail etc. In this case study using the reference of shonitmokshan in jivha roga[3], vedhan karma was selected to seen the relief in vaka-aspashtata. Appreciable results were observed in the form of difficulty in speaking, lalastrava, mukhavakarata.
