    Calling all sore feet!
    Ishtika Sveda at Lakshmi Ayurveda

    This is one of the most effective sudation therapies for heel pain.
    Isthtika is a Sanskrit word for brick and sveda is a sudation/ sweat inducing treatment.
    Ayurveda uses this unique method in the treatment of heel spurs and plantar fasciitis

    How is Ishtika Sveda done?
    1. You will be sitting comfortably in a chair 
    2. Your foot will be massaged (Padaabhyanga) with a suitable ayurvedic oil. If you have a burning sensation we will be using our in-house prepared Pinda thailam.
    3. The hot bricks are placed on a tray
    4. Dashamula kashayam a decoction prepared with Vata pacifying herbs or washed rice water is poured over the hot brick.
    5. The foot is placed parallel to the hot brick which is emitting steam
    6. The treatment is done for 10-15 minutes and best to be repeated twice daily.

    For more information please watch Karin’s IGTV video about heel spurs.
    We wish you a peaceful Sunday evening.
