Pinda Swedan (Podikizhi) is a natural treatment and is one of the most popular treatments in Ayurveda. Pinda is a fomentation (swedana) treatment.
In Ayurveda, there are many varieties of swedan treatments that are used. What ingredients and which swedan therapy is suitable is decided based on an individual’s dosha predominance and health concerns.
Pinda swedan is where warm herbal powders are placed in a special cotton cloth and tied up. The ingredients of the herbal powder will vary from person to person according to the chronicity of the disease, the intensity of pain, dosha predominance, and prakruthi of an individual. An abhyanga (body massage) is usually recommended prior to embarking on a Pinda swedan therapy.
