Shirodhara is a treatment method in which a liquid is poured across the forehead in a rhythmic manner. The name comes from the Sanskrit words shiro (head) and dhara (flow).

Swedana literally translates to perspire. The main purpose of Swedana is to increase body temperature and to open the system of channels (srotas and nadis) in the body. This gets toxins to move from shakha to koshta or from the tissue level to the digestive tract, from where they can be lead out of the body through one of the cleansing actions that are part of Pancha Karma procedures.
Swedana is useful for all conditions related to stagnation, coldness and stiffness. Sweating also reduces fat tissue and thus assists in weight loss.

The treatment relieves body pain and muscle spasms, speeds up the healing of fractured bones and other injuries, increases immunity, improves skin complexion, has anti-aging properties and is soothing, relaxing and rejuvenating.

It is also very effectively assisting in curing diseases of the nervous system as well as chronic rheumatism, osteoarthritis and gout.
Kati Basti is one treatment from a group of treatments called external oleation therapies (Snehana). In this particular treatment, medicinal oil is first heated and then held in place at a specific area of the patient’s back by a ring made out of dough.

The treatment is often used to treat anatomical problems of the lumbar/sacral region, including slipped disc, sciatica or other spinal related problems.
Takradhara is a traditional Ayurvedic Treatment procedure wherein buttermilk is continuously poured onto a specific body part, often the forehead – in which case it is a variety of Shirodhara. Due to its cooling qualities, buttermilk is used for heat related problems.
