Swedana, or Sudation Therapy, involves inducing sweat in the patient. It channels amam, or pent-up toxins inside the body, to places from where they can be easily ejected by the system during Pradhanakarma. It is usually conducted as the last stage of Purvakarma after Pachana (Digestion Therapy) and Snehana (Oleation Therapy). But it is important as a stand-alone treatment as well.
Swedana is a cleansing-cum-stress relieving therapy recommended for patients suffering from ailments such as asthma, weight and digestion issues, and body inflammation.
