Pinda Sweda is a type of Ayurvedic massage which is done with warm medicated herbal oils and herb bags. These bags/ boluses are prepared by a combination of herbs depending on the client’s body type as well as health condition. Herbs are tied in linen cloth to make small bags which are then dipped in warm oils and placed on the body.

My 17 years of experience has revealed to me that pinda sweda can be a very effective tool for emotional clearing, energy body healing and spiritual progress IF the client is open and receptive.
Being a Reiki practitioner and the person I am, I can’t help but use Reiki energy while doing massages. And I inevitably can feel the energy being actively involved in healings as soon as I place my hands on client’s body.
My clients have actually nicknamed the herb boluses as “magic potlis (bags)” as all their pains vanish with massage.
So, book in for a massage with me and get benefits of both Ayurveda and Reiki!
