Udwarthanam (Dry Powder Scrub)


‘Udwarthanam’ is included in the ‘panchakarma’ treatment in Ayurveda. In this treatment, massage is done with the help of herbal powders. Dry herbs are cleaned, dried and powdered as per the instructions of the physician. This powder is then heated mildly and used for massage in upward stroking motions. The deep massage improves blood circulation, and effectively stimulates the breakdown of the stored subcutaneous fat by improving the basal metabolic rate. It can be used as a dry powder, with oil and or steam according to the condition being treated.
