Udvartana is deeply penetrating herbal paste lymphatic massage. This full body massage uses a paste prepared from ground grains to cleanse the skin, improve circulation, and help weight loss
. It is particularly good for skin care as its powerful exfoliating effect magically conditions the skin. It is almost similar to Abhyanga but more invigorating. Also it uses herbal paste instead of oil. The paste is made with various organic grains, flours, herbs and oils and applied with upward strokes during massage. Udvartana massage is particularly used for people having Kapha dosha.
Udvartana helps to eliminate lymphatic toxins out of the body and also improves sluggish circulation and digestion. It balances Kapha dosha and cleans the skin. It increases the metabolic rate of the body and activates the rasa dhatu (lymph), which in turn enables the vayus (gases) to flow and make the nadi system more efficient.
