Swedana Ayurvedic Treatment in Rishikesh is an Ayurvedic steam treatment that also serves as a preparatory procedure for the Panchakarma. In Sanskrit, Swedana means “to sweat” or “to perspire”. Hence, this treatment involves the removal of toxins by stimulating the sweat glands of the body. Sweat is generally induced with the help of the steam generated from herbal decoctions. This Ayurveda treatment not only helps to treat an array of diseases but also to restore the balance between the Tridoshas.

There are many different varieties of Swedana, depending on the intensity and source of sweating, the body part to be affected etc. Each Swedana caters to specific problems.
