About this therapy

Tired of tossing and turning in your bed at night due to painful bones and joints? It may be due to a severe and chronic back ache, joint pain, muscle catch, stiffness etc.

Here is an unparalleled treatment for your excruciating pain, stiffness and muscle catch in ayurveda, known as Patra Pinda Sweda.

Patra (leaves) Pinda (bolus - a small rounded mass of a substance) and Swedana (sudation). It is a treatment in which the leaves of the medical plants (Eranda - Ricinus communis, Shigru - Moringa oliefera, Dhatura - datura metel, Nirgundi - Vitex negundo) are tied into a bolus and rubbed in a synchronised manner over the pain afflicted joints or body parts. Dhatura has anti-inflammatory action and reduces rheumatism & gout. Shigru and Nirgundi does severe pain reduction and Eranda pacifies Vata Dosha.

This treatment is generally preferred in conditions of Vata morbidity or painful conditions involving vata dosha alone. Patra Pinda Sweda has to be taken in the absence of Ama.

Ama - अपक्व आहार रस इति आम ।

It is an undigested, unprocessed toxic substance formed due to the hypo-functioning of Agni which is not capable of nourishing the body, but vitiates Doshas and causes diseases. Agni, an important factor which does the digestion of the ingested food articles, helps to maintain the good health.

Features seen in a person due to Ama are: feeling of weakness, heaviness, laziness, Indigestion and excessive salivation, constipation, lack of taste and lethargy. In case of presence of ama, it can be opted after getting rid of Ama condition by taking few sessions of Choorna Pinda Sweda or Valuka Sweda or Udwartanam.

Patra Pinda Sweda is highly recommended in both musculoskeletal and neuro - muscular disorders. This therapy when skillfully taken in combination with other localised therapies such as Kati Basti (oil pooling for lower back) Greeva Basti (oil pooling for back of the neck) Janu Basti (oil pooling in knee joints) Prushta Basti (oil pooling for complete back) Abhyanga (Head to Toe Full Body oil massage) to yield magical results.
