Ayurveda is a gift from Gods to the humans. With its gaining popularity, Ayurveda is in practice like never before. The imbalanced doshas in our body reduces the immunity of our body and turns it into the host of diseases. One can reduce stress and anxiety through meditation and other Ayurvedic remedies.

One of the most common problems is unnatural sitting posture. It causes lower back pain, stiff neck, shoulder pain, muscle contraction and reduced joint mobility. Pinda Sweda, an ancient ayurvedic massage, is effective in treating this problem.
Medicinal herbs or plants are selected to treat current conditions that are being experienced. Typically, they are analgesic, anti-inflammatory, and anti-degenerative in properties. The selected herbs are boiled in milk and then rice is cooked using the milk concoction. Essential oils may be added to the blend to enhance the medicinal qualities. Finally, this heated mixture is tied together in a bundle by a therapist. The pouches, or Pindas, are used to massage the body. During the massage the \”Medicated\” mixture of the herbs, milk and rice is released on to the body in a creamy, thick mixture, where it can be absorbed and the healing benefits utilized. The heat of the pindas also creates a sweat response in the body (Sveda). This sweat process opens the energy channels, detoxifies and the increases the absorbtion of the solution.
Pinda Sweda is used for treating:
- Back pain
- Stiff neck and shoulders
- Muscle weakness and fatigue
- Joint stiffness

Abhyanga, a relaxing massage with warm oil is can be performed before performing Pinsa Sweda.
