Pinda Sweda Massage

The origin of Pinda Sweda Massage comes from the oriental and Ayurvedic medicine. The pindas are linen bags tied at the top by a cord. They can be filled with aromatic and medicinal herbs, spices, dry fruits, cereals and cooked rice in regular or plant based milk or water. Herbs that we can use are chamomile, rosemary, mint, lavender, comfrey and other. We can add turmeric or essential oils too. Milk nourishes and hydrates the skin, and spices and medicinal herbs relieve pain. We prepare pindas depending on the client’s body type as well as health condition and desired outcome. .

We start massage with Abhyanga – a relaxing massage with warm oils and we continue with warm pindas. Pinda Sweda Massage reduce effects of stress on the body and mind, improve lymphatic drainage, blood circulation, sleeping and skin texture, reduce pain, swelling and stiffness, remove toxins from the body, release stress, etc.
