This specialized massage with hot stones dates back to Vedic times and it was known as Ashma sweda. During this therapy, the therapist uses smooth, heated stones, either as an extension of their own hands, or by placing them on the body while they focus on other parts of the body. Penetrating heat of the stones releases the deep seated toxins, help warm up tight muscles, and makes one feel rejuvenated.
It is one of the most popular therapies among spa-regulars.
§ Lepana – Body wrap
Body wrap is a therapy where you are slathered with a body mask made of custom tailored herbal paste then wrapped for 20 minutes to keep you warm. Later the product is rinsed off. The body wrap usually ends with an application of lotion (technically not a massage). This body wrap treatment is sometimes called a body cocoon or body mask. It is normally a detox treatment that helps body to get rid of toxins through metabolic stimulation; helps melt subcutaneous fat in a healthier way and gives excellent exfoliation.
§ Udvartana – Dry powder massage
Massaging the entire body with specialized herbal power mix is an ancient way to balance kapha. This safe way of exfoliation is typically recommended before Abhyanga and beneficial to get rid of toxins along with giving tone to muscles.
This custom tailored massage gives skin cells a luminous glow, imparts mobility to the joints, strengthens muscles and refreshes the body.
