Shashti Shalik Pinda Swedana – Bolus Massage and Sweat Therapy
Pinda Sweda is a unique treatment offered by Sevayu that combines massage and sweat therapy. Using the standard heat and oil process at the core of the majority of Ayurvedic massage treatments, Pinda Sweda also uses ‘rice puddings’ or medicinal rice cooked with herbs and bundled into soft cotton to create heat-holding boluses.
This treatment is usually recommended for the muscular dystrophy, joint pains and muscles commonly associated with arthritic conditions, back pain and muscle stiffness. It can also be used to delay the ageing process, insomnia, multiple sclerosis, muscle weakness and paralysis.
Therapist will massage warm medicinal oil over the entire body before applying the medicated herbal rice boluses to specific areas using varied pressure to remove stiffness and clear the bodily channels. After the boluses have been used, the contents are removed from the bundle and massaged into the skin before being removed.
This treatment helps promote the elimination of toxins while enhancing circulation and blood flow.
