Known as ‘upward movement’ in Sanskrit, Udwarthanam is an exfoliating and anti-cellulite Ayurvedic massage treatment. It is performed by massaging the body against the direction of the hair follicles, using warm and dry herbal powders. It primarily works on lymphatic drainage and improves blood circulation, and skin’s texture and elasticity. Udwarthanam also aids in fat reduction and is considered one of the best Ayurvedic treatments to treat obesity and cellulite. Furthermore, it lends a hand in treating diabetes, sleep disorders, fluid retention, hypothyroidism, psoriasis, menstrual disorders, etc.
