Sarvanga Swedana is a traditional Ayurvedic therapy that involves inducing sweat using steam, applied to the entire body except for the head. This treatment is often performed after an oil massage, such as Abhyanga, to deepen the therapeutic effects. The process utilizes a steam chamber or enclosure where herbal-infused steam circulates, allowing the body to sweat profusely. This sweating process helps to dilate the channels of the body, facilitating the removal of accumulated toxins (Ama) through the skin. Sarvanga Swedana is beneficial for relieving stiffness, heaviness, and coldness in the body, enhancing circulation, and promoting the deeper penetration of medicinal oils into the tissues. It is recommended for various conditions, including arthritis, muscle pain, and chronic respiratory issues, effectively balancing the doshas and rejuvenating the body.
