Ayurvedic Pinda Sweda Massage (PIND)
All ancient cultures used the earth's sacred grains and legumes not only to cleanse, nourish and enhance the physical prowess of the body but also to tone the skin. In Pinda Sweda, a pinda (bolus/ball) is made from grains, herbs and spices and firm massage is applied over the whole or specific part of the body. This helps to awaken cellular memory through intense stimulation.
This delightful body treatment is a post massage additional treatment particularly helpful for detoxifying and beatifying the skin. It enhances circulation and draws fresh energy to the surface of the skin. Pinda Sweda is given after the Whole Body or Part Abhyanga (massage).
It is excellent in treating Vata and Kapha disorders, since both these doshas are cold in nature. This Sweda is very effective for rehabilitation therapy.
This remarkable treatment uses natural, nourishing, ingredients such as Sesame Oil, Chickpea Flour, Ginger, Adjowan Seeds, Turmeric Powder and Fenugreek Powder.
Please note that a small hot plate (available from Argos) is required to do this treatment.
Basic Massage experience is required to attend this course.
