Weight loss is what many of us struggle to achieve. Most of us try many things to get back in shape that includes going to the gym, limiting foods, sometimes even starving on purpose and more. However, there is an ayurvedic massage therapy that helps with weight loss which is Udvarthanam. Have you heard about it in recent times?
If you haven’t and you are struggling with weight loss, then you should try Udvarthanam. Not only it helps to shed weight but it is also safe in terms of procedure.
So, what is udvarthanam? you might think. We will explain that in the following section.
An effective ayurvedic massage therapy
Udvarthanam is an ayurvedic procedure that helps in breaking down fat which in turn helps weight loss. The procedure is mainly a deep tissue massage Singapore that involves rubbing of herbal powders and oil across the body. Unlike regular massages, in udwarthanam, the massaging is performed by rubbing the powder forcibly on the body in a direction opposite to the direction in which the body hair grows.
The name Udvarthanam is a combination of two separate words. These are “Urdhwa” that means upward and “varthanam” that means movement. So, the whole process involves an Indian body massage that is performed upward strokes. The purpose of this massage is to generate heat that in turn helps to melt off the unwanted body fat.
Also, when it comes to doing an udvarthanam, there are two variations of the treatment. The first one is Snigadh udvarthanam that involves using medicated oils and dry powder. The second one is Ruksha udvarthanam that only involves the use of dry powder. Although udwarthanam treatment is done as a single process, it yields better results when combined with other ayurvedic treatments such as Abhyangam, Shirodhara Takradahra, etc.
How is it done
If you want to get an udvarthanam treatment done, the first thing is to visit a reputed ayurvedic clinic where a licensed massage therapist will do the procedure. However, you must choose the right place else the results won’t be what you expect. If you are unsure about the place, you can visit Ayurlife ayurvedic clinic. We are one of the reputed ayurvedic clinics in Singapore providing holistic care for both the mind and body.
Since the procedure involves massaging in the opposite direction of the hair growth, we recommend informing the practitioner of your skin type or issues. Depending on the type of skin, the appropriate procedure will be done. To promote the breaking of the fat, the practitioner will apply pressure to various pressure points on the body.
Once the natural herbal remedies have been applied and the massaging is done, the practitioner will leave you to rest. After that, a warm bath is given using lukewarm water that will nourish your skin and rejuvenate. Depending on the type of procedure chosen, the entire procedure takes around 45 minutes to 1.5 hours.
However, you have to know one thing which is the procedure is not suitable for all people. More specifically, if you are having any underlying health issues, or pregnant ( for women), it is wise to not opt for udvarthanam. Thus, before availing for one, you should consult your ayurvedic doctor.
Benefits of Udwarthanam
Like with every other ayurvedic massage therapy, this one too comes with several benefits that are long term for your body and mind. However, it is wise to get the procedure done periodically as it will help with your overall health. Although the primary benefit of udvarthanam is dealing with weight loss, it also has several other benefits which are as follows:
