When toxins accumulate within our bodies, it often shows first in the skin. Water and fat retention are just two of the signs that your body is out of balance. Dry, patchy, and acneic skin are other common features of toxin accumulation.
Udvartana is an Ayurveda massage treatment that utilizes specific techniques, powders, and essential oils to address these issues. It is also a whole body treatment that is relaxing and stimulating at the same time.
Three Ways Udvartana Can Transform Your Body
1. Unclogged Pores
Essential oils and herbal powders carefully chosen for their effects are made into a paste that aids in transforming dry, rough skin into a smooth and silky surface. For those with pustules and acne on the body, it works wonders to unclog pores and improve the appearance of congested skin.
As your practitioner smooths this paste over you, dead skin cells are buffed away, skin cell renewal is increased, and the detoxifying benefits of the paste help to soothe your senses.
2. Lymphatic Restoration
The lymphatic system is an often overlooked part of the body that helps to keep your system balanced by cleansing toxins out of your body and protecting it from harmful invaders.
Udvartana works to rev up the lymphatic system through special techniques, oils, and herbal powders. This results in a smoother appearance, especially in areas involved in water retention (also known as cellulite).
3. Circulation and Stimulation
This effective Ayurveda massage treatment is not only soothing to the senses, it is simultaneously stimulating. You will find it to be a balanced treatment that increases circulation and strengthens your skin’s natural defenses, reducing both Vata and Kapha.
This exceptional treatment should be a part of an overall lifestyle program, including a healthy diet, regular exercise, yoga, and meditation. Enjoy beautiful skin and a healthy glow inside and out with this customized treatment.
