Pindasweda in Indian culture literally means "helping the body to sweat", it involves applying herbal boluses for massage.

The herbs contained in the ball (also called bolus) release their active ingredients. Small bags of natural material such as cotton are rigorously handmade, composed of medicinal herbs that are shredded and dried, sometimes associated with spices and hot rice, rich in starch and healthy for the body.

The beneficial effects of Pindasweda massage:

• It promotes the elimination of toxins and cleanses the body. All forms of impurities in the skin are thus eliminated leaving a smooth and velvety, well toned and even luminescent epidermis.

• In cases of muscle contractures and fatigue, it is recommended as an ideal remedy for those who practice intense physical activity, even at a competitive level.
• All joint pains are alleviated by the action of boiling oil, since the heat loosens the muscles, relaxes the area and performs a decisive analgesic function on the body, inducing an increase in the pain threshold.
