Pinda Svedana is a deeply therapeutic, site-specific, localized heat and massage application. This 3-day, 21-hour course provides students with hands-on experience preparing and using pindas (boluses) in groups of two. Pindas are prepared from rice and herbs wrapped in cotton fabric and soaked in medicated herbal oils and decoctions. The herbal pindas are applied to specific areas of the body with gentle-to-moderate pressure. The practice of Pinda Svedana is an important modality for alleviating joint and muscle pain.
