  • Udvartana

  • Udvartana is a treatment in Ayurveda in which specially prepared herbal paste or herbal powder is massaged over the body. It is a treatment used to support weight loss or detoxification programs.

  • What is Udvartana?

    There are two types of Udvartana, and the ingredients used vary according to the condition:

    • Snigdha Udvartana: Is a massage with herbal paste (a combination of powdered herbs and oil).
    • Ruksha Udvartana: Is a dry massage with herbal powders.

    In Sanskrit the word Udvartana means “to move something in an upward direction". This refers to the upward massage strokes used during the massage.  The brisk massage techniques, combined with the penetrating herbs, creates heat in the body to help liquify toxins, reduce fluid retention and increase circulation.

    Snigdha Urdvartana – Ayurvedic Paste Massage

    This treatment begins by massaging warm herbalised oils into the body to prepare the skin for the herbal paste application. The heated herbal paste is then applied to the body with fast upward massage strokes.
