  • Ishtika Sveda

    Treatment Duration: 45 minutes.

    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 place 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.
