Swedana (Herbal Steam Therapy)

In Ayurveda, Sweat/Steam Therapy ( Swedana) is used to effectively dislodge and liquefy the toxins and improve digestion. It is done only after the oleation (oil treatment) or Udvartana (Herbal exfoliation). With the help of Swedana, Ama (undigested food toxins) easily starts flowing from the tissues back to the GI tract and blood circulation also improves. This also helps to relieve and reduce fat tissue and muscle tension. When the toxins are back in the GI tract, they are easily expelled from the body with the help of Panchakarma (ayurvedic detox procedure) therapies.  Appropriate herbs or essentials oils are added to the steam. Traditionally in Ayurveda, Swedana is suggested in conditions, such as weight management, arthritis, poor circulation, poor metabolism, poor thyroid functioning, cold, cough, headache, earache, constipation,  etc..

In certain cases, Swedana is not recommended, for example, heart disease, high blood pressure, after purgation, skin diseases, anemia, jaundice, during pregnancy, during the menstruation cycle.

Swedana is an important treatment during Panchakarma, especially for vata and kapha imbalances. In general, Swedana can be done after oleation on regular basis.
