What is Kashaya Dhara?

Kashaya Dhara is an Ayurvedic decoction bath, where a constant rhythmic stream of herbalised liquid is poured and massaged over the body. A relaxing treatment, it is used to support weight loss or detoxification programs.


This treatment begins by massaging warm herbalised oils into the body to prepare for the Kashaya Dhara treatment.

In Sanskrit “Kashaya” means decoction, and “Dhara” means continuous flow.

During Kashaya Dhara, the decoction is continuously poured over the body while maintaining a specific rhythm, height and temperature. The decoction is simultaneously massaged into the body throughout the treatment. When applied over the body, it may be over a specific area or the entire body. The decoction is chosen according to your health condition.

Ayurvedic Droni

One of the most important tools in Ayurvedic treatments is the treatment table itself. Known as a Droni it is hand-carved from a single piece of medicinal wood (such as the neem tree).

The table’s unique design allows for treatments with an abundance of Ayurvedic herbal oil to be performed. Over time these oils become absorbed by the table, and thus the table itself is part of the healing process.
