Swedana is a traditional steam therapy designed to open tissues with the saturation of heat and moisture. Once the tissues are open, deep seated toxins can be released through the pores of the skin, thereby reducing inflammation, improving circulation, and promoting healing and restoration. We offer Bashpa Swedana a full body herbal steam therapy in a Steam Box, where the body can be fully steamed, and the head remains cool.
Bashpa Swedana is a full body herbal steam therapy, wherein herbalized steam completely saturates the body, with the use of a steam box. In our Steam Box, you are seated in a chair inside the box, while the head is outside the box, and can remain cool. Bashpa Swedana is a main therapy in Pancha Karma and it also may be added to the end of a massage to enhance its benefits. In both cases, this therapy is done after Abhyanga massage or other oil massage to drive the herbal oil deeper into the layers of the skin, dislodging deep seated toxins, and promoting their release through the process of sweating. Rehydration tea is offered during the steam to maintain hydration and restore electro mineralite balance. Essential oils are added to the steam, according to individual constitution, to enhance the journey and support balance within the doshas.
