(Herbal Steam Therapy)

This is specialized herbal steam therapy in which specific herbal decoction is used for steam therapy .This is traditionally used after Abhyanga or any other oil massage to further detoxify the body and help the medicated oils penetrate into the tissues by dilating body channels. The application of heat counteracts the cold qualities of Vata and Kapha, reduces the body’s stiffness and heaviness, as well as the slow, heavy, sticky qualities of toxins.

Traditionally it is done after oil massage but can be available separately.

Duration: 20 -30 min.
