This treatment is usually performed after the body has been anointed with oil by abhyanga. The patient sits in a wooden steam box which covers the body but not the head. The body is exposed to a continuous flow of herbal steam.
The heat liquifies the stuck toxins and helps the body release them through the body pores. Svedana alleviates stiffness, heaviness and coldness of the body.
Treatment Duration: 10 minutes upwards
